Can the Damage Caused by a Heart Attack be Reversed?

Can the Damage Caused by a Heart Attack be Reversed?

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked, often by a buildup of fat, cholesterol, and other substances, forming a plaque in the arteries. If blood flow is not restored quickly, the section of heart muscle begins to die, starving for oxygen. This causes a heart attack. A heart attack can also be caused by the rupture of the coronary artery. During a coronary rupture, the coronary arteries get restricted, reducing blood supply to the heart muscle.

Each coronary artery supplies blood to a region of the heart muscle.

Extent of damage to the heart muscle depends on the area supplied by the blocked artery and time between injury and treatment. Making some changes in your diet; how consistently you exercise; how much you weigh and how you manage stress can help you to recover from a heart disease quickly.

You can undo some, but probably not all of the damage, if you're willing to make big and lasting changes to your lifestyle. To reverse the impairments caused by a heart attack/disease you can become a vegetarian. Filling your platter with fruits and vegetables, whole grains, soy products, non-fat dairy and egg whites while avoiding fat, refined sugar and processed carbs is a sure-shot way of keeping your heart healthy and preventing future attacks.

Dear Lybrateuser, - You may have the feeling of missed beat due to stress, anxiety or any other unknown reason - avoid more than 1-2 cups of tea, coffee per day, also alcohol, tobacco, smoking if you do - do regular exercise like brisk walking, jogging, swimming, cycling for 20-30 min a day, also do yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 10-15 min in the morning as it will keep your body fit & calm your mind - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed, do not nap for more than 30 min in the day if you do so, do not drink tea, coffee late in the evening or aerated drinks as they disturb sleep, a restful sleep at night is the best for the body & heart & will help solve your problem.

I have pain in my chest since last two to three years. I had consulted a doctor and he wrote some tests. All the test were normal except X-ray report. It shows some of the chest part covered so at first the doctor wrote for removal of cough. And when it didn't worked then he wrote medicines for swelling in muscles of chest. One of my relative suggested Kalmegh a homeopathic medicine. What should I do now?

Dear Lybrateuser, -Your pain may be due to hyperacidity -avoid spicy, fried & junk food, don't skip meals, have meals on time, chew food well, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down for at least 1 hour after meals -have 7-8 glasses of water in a day -do regular exercises like walking, jogging for 30 min on most days, also do yoga & deep breathing for 10-15 min in the morning -get endoscopy done to rule out any other problem, consult a doctor.

At 36 if you had a heart attack followed by stent therapy , take it as a warning to make lifestyle changes , yes you have to take some medicines for life like If BP/ Sugar is high , control with help of medicines , if you are given blood thinners like Aspirin & medicines to reduce cholestrol like statins- doctors are divided on this , My own suggestion is take nature in your stride and do not take above medicines for life due to side effects on liver/ kidney/ tendency to bleed more from any site from brain to stomach. Reduce cholesterol by eating less of diet rich in bad fats like fried items, do take good fats like a katori of nuts , all variety like few soaked and peeled almonds . cashew nuts , wallnuts , pistachios , peanuts or even just peanuts. eat more seasonal fruits & vegetables both raw and cooked with very little fat. Remember no oil is Zero cholesterol as advertised on TV, use mustered oil and thick based iron karahi with cover to cook food through steam, not through frying. Use tomato puree to thicken the gravies. Walk a lot , this is the simplest exercise , Avoid smoke and pollution as low levels of oxygen in air can trigger a heart attack. Remain stress free , get Lipid profile and Echo test done at least once in a year and If you are Symptom free , Do not Remind yourself again and again that You are a Cardiac patient .

I understand your concern and would explain that low blood pressure could be related to different causes: - chronic anemia - dehydration - electrolytes imbalances from malnutrition - orthostatic hypotension, etc. I would recommend performing some tests to investigate for the possible cause: - a resting ECG (as you refer to have a fast heart rate) - blood lab tests (complete blood count, blood electrolytes, kidney and liver function tests) A head up tilt test would be necessary to exclude possible orthostatic hypotension. If all these tests result normal there is nothing to worry about. Meanwhile, I would recommend avoiding prolonged standing up position and take plenty of fluids (water, juices) to stay well hydrates. An increase in the salt and caffeine intake could help in raising blood pressure. Hope to have been helpful! Greetings!

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your problem is due to strain & stretch to the muscle & soft tissues - avoid bending, lifting weight, playing or exercising till pain subsides as movement will increase it - do hot fomentation of the affected area three times a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - if still pain is there take a pain killer tablet after meals, max 2-3 in a day.

You sound like you could be in an unhealthy symbiosis with your parents and therefore the high level of fear in their absence. This may have contributed to the breakup with your last girlfriend. Your fear is now too much that your imagination is running wild and suggesting all kinds of possibilities to actually seem like you are suffering from a heart problem. You need to break the bonds with your parents and learn to be independent. You must meet with a counselor and work out your dependency needs. In the meantime, you could also attend a good personality development course, socializing course, attend a gym regularly and learn a lot of skills in relating to other people. You need to develop​ self-confidence and self-esteem too.

Hello Manju, as per your height (5 ft, 5 in) & weight (80 kg), you are 12-15 kg over-weight. If you reduce your weight, it will help to reduce your bp as well as put less pressure on your bones & legs. For that, reduce your carbohydrate intake (roti / rice / bread), increase your protein intake like paneer, soybean, eggs, milk, chicken ,all dals, sprouts. Reduce your sweet intake. Avoid fried foods & junk foods.
