Howie Mandel, the famous comedian widely known for hosting NBC’s America’s Got Talent, maintains a heavy schedule. He still serves as a executive producer and host for CNBC’s Deal Or No Deal and performs as many as 200 stand up shows a year. With such a demanding schedule, health is a priortity for Howie, but back in 2009, during a routine check up, he mentioned to his doctor that he had been feeling fatigued.
Mandel was eventually diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation, a heart condition that affects up to 6 million Americans. After seeing a cardiologist, Mandel underwent two ablations, a procedure where doctors use electrical signals to make scars in the heart tissue in order to restore a normal heart rhythm.
Today he manages his Afib with medication and a healthy lifestyle. Find out more in the upcoming Winter 2021 edition of BCI’s My Hometown Health Magazine.
