5 simple steps to prevent coronary heart disease.
We are all aware that the incidence of heart disease is increasing in india. Generally the average age of heart patients in india is a decade younger, that means there are more younger patients suffering from heart disease in india.
How to prevent coronary heart disease in five simple and easy to follow steps.
1. Physical exercise.
This is the most important step to prevent coronary heart disease. In today’s world we work mostly sitting on a desk. We need to get out and walk, jog, cycle or swim etc. In all we need 30 -45 min of aerobic exercise 3 -4 times a week. Not just heart disease aerobics exercise helps prevent a number of other diseases also. It is one of the only ways to prolong your life. If you are doing yoga or any weight training even then you need aerobic exercise.
2. Mind what you eat.
We need to be mindful of what food we put inside our body. A healthy diet is one of the key pillars of good health. Your diet should have good quality protein, you can have moderate amount of fats but should avoid all refined sugars. Sugar has been shown to be the real culprit so better avoid it even if you are not a diabetic. Excess sugar is worse than fat. Take good amount of fibre, fresh seasonal fruits. Don’t fall into any trap which says eat dates or garlic to reduce cholesterol etc. These may have benefits but that doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you like without consequences.
3. Stop smoking
You should immediately stop smoking both active and passive. Smoking is known to be a very harmful habit. It increases chances for getting a number of diseases including heart disease, lung cancer, bladder cancer etc. In western societies the incidence of smoking is coming down, in india we need to spread more awareness.
4. Route blood pressure check.
High blood pressure is a very common issue which goes unrecognised and is very harmful to the body. All the organs in the body are exposed to its bad effects. Heart, kidneys, brain, eyes are the organs most commonly effected organs by this problem. High blood pressure can be easily recognised and can save a lot of lives. Once diagnosed with high b. P one needs to be on regular medication. You should never skip or discontinue medication as it can cause rebound hypertension that is very high b. P, which can cause bleeding in the brain.
5. Routine annual blood checkup
We need to undergo routine annual blood check after the age of 40 years, this age needs to be lowered to 35 if there is some family history of heart disease. Everyone needs to get their blood sugar parameters checked, cholesterol levels checked. At the time of checkup the doctor may include other tests like vit d3 levels or b12 & folate levels in case vegetarians etc.
In the end we should remember that we have just one body in this life so better take care of it or regret later. As age advances we all become more prone to diseases so a little care goes a long way.
A possible symptom of heart attack may be severe chest pain
Severe chest pain and a combination of the following symptoms can mean a person is having an acute heart attack. Severe chest pain is often described by patients as the worst pain of their lives, and is likened to something very heavy pressing on the chest.
Symptoms of a heart attack:
- Possible symptoms of a heart attack include the following:
- Pain that appears to spread up to the neck or down to the left arm
- Feeling faint and/or nausea
- Risk factors of heart attack
- A history of heart problems
The patient is:
The patient suffers from:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
Dos and don'ts in the event of a heart attack:
- Call for an ambulance.
- Paramedics should be trained to stabilise the patient’s condition with medication, and the ambulance be equipped with a defibrillator to resuscitate the patient should the heart stop en route.
- Get ready the patient’s personal effects such as personal identification, medical insurance and other documents for admission.
- Have the patient seated in a location where he can be transferred easily to a stretcher.
- Let the paramedics know about any drug allergies or past medical history
- Drive or take public transport to the hospital, even if the patient lives nearby. As the patient’s condition may deteriorate en route, it is safer to wait for an ambulance. Also, ambulances also get priority on arriving at a&e.
- Ignore the pain. Get anxious about time wasted when the paramedics perform an on-site ecg.
Coronary artery disease, also known as coronary heart disease or CHD, is a kind of disease in which a wax-like substance called plaque, builds up in the coronary arteries.
Function of Coronary Artery
The task of coronary arteries is to supply oxygen rich blood to the heart muscles. When there is the growth of plaque in these arteries, the condition is termed as atherosclerosis. Plaque builds up over the years, and it hardens or ruptures with time. When plaque gets hardened, it narrows the coronary arteries and thus disrupts the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscles causing coronary heart diseases. Millions of people are diagnosed with heart diseases, nowadays.
Though it is true that living with a heart disease is not easy, it is not impossible either. Many people are successfully leading a happy life in spite of having such diseases. With some major changes in your lifestyle, food habits and with the help of exercises and a healthy diet, it is possible to enjoy a happy life, irrespective of your diseases.
Here are six ways that would help you to lead a better life, even if you have been diagnosed with coronary artery disease.
- Lifestyle changes: This is the first point that needs to be kept in mind if you are a CAD patient. Lifestyle changes are essential to make for a better health and life. Smoking and drinking have to be given up completely. It is advised to avoid secondary smoke, as much as possible.
- Exercises: This is the next important activity that needs to be a part of your daily routine to lead a healthy life. Consult with your doctor about the types of exercise that would suit your conditions. Some common exercises that would help are walking, jogging, and swimming, for at least 30 minutes at the most. Choose whichever activity you like doing. The motive of exercises is to get your heart-rate up.
- A Heart healthy diet: Get a chart prepared for your diet by a dietitian or by your doctor. This will keep your disease from getting worse. Stick to a heart-healthy eating plan, which consists of foods that can lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, etc. Include more fruits, vegetables, and other high fibre foods in your daily diet. Go for foods that are low in saturated fats, trans-fats, and cholesterol. Try to include fish into your diet.
- Maintain a healthy weight: Being overweight or obese aggravates any disease. So it is important to keep your body weight perfect.
- Taking medicines as prescribed: It is important to take medicines regularly and as prescribed by the physician.
- Keeping tensions, anxiety to a minimum: These will make the situation worse if you are CAD patient. So try to keep tension and anxiety away and lead a healthy life.

The heart pumps pure blood to all parts of the body through a network of arteries. These are thicker in the beginning and become finer and thinner as they reach the various organs. These arteries are lined by a layer of epithelial tissues and as blood flows through them, the heavier cholesterol / fat molecules settle down along the walls.
This attracts more and more fat molecules to settle down. This is known as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Over a period of time, the vessels circumference reduces and the blood supply to the target organ reduces. This impacts proper functioning of these organs and when this happens to the major organs like the heart, kidney or the brain, conditions like stroke or thrombosis or heart attack can occur.
This condition, known as coronary artery disease, is becoming a major cause of deaths. While that is the bad news, the good news is that it is largely lifestyle dependent, and if steps are taken, it can be prevented, and in the early stages, the damage completely reversed.
1. Diet: A low-fat, high-fiber, heart-healthy diet consisting of Omega-3 fatty acids is recommended by doctors, especially to people who are prone to develop heart disease. This also requires reduced salt, increased unsaturated fats, reduced triglycerides and reduced sugar. Include loads of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds and fish oils. Include multivitamins or other supplements after checking with your doctor.
2. Exercise: Regular exercise in any form increases the efficiency of the circulatory system, keeps the cholesterol levels in check and helps in blood pressure management. Exercise in any form is advisable, based on individual preference. A moderate physical activity of 30 to 45 minutes per day is advisable.
3. Smoking: This is one of the major risk factors for smoking, and quitting or controlling smoking is one of the best methods to prevent coronary artery disease.
4. Alcohol consumption: While moderate alcohol consumption is believed to be healthy for the heart, excessive alcohol consumption is a strict no-no. Binge drinking especially is shown to cause heart attacks.
6. Regular medications: If you are on blood pressure or diabetes medications, ensure you do not miss them. Keep a constant check to ensure your readings are managed well.
7. Watch out: Ask your doctor if there are specific symptoms that you need to watch out and seek medical support if you see any of them.
Coronary disease is not treatable fully, but can be prevented and managed effectively to improve the overall quality of life.
