A heart attack does not always have obvious symptoms, such as pain in your chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats. In fact, a heart attack can actually happen without a person knowing it. This condition is known as a ‘silent heart attack’, medically known as ‘silent ischemia’, occurring due to the shortage of oxygen supply to the heart muscle.
The causes of a silent heart attack are similar to that of a heart attack. They include-
- Obesity or excess weight
- Lack of exercise
- Disorders such as diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Age, usually above 65
- Heart diseases
- Consumption of tobacco or smoking
A silent cardiac arrest makes one more vulnerable to another heart attack that could be fatal.
The only method to diagnose if you had a silent heart attack is through imaging tests, such as echocardiogram, electrocardiogram or others. These tests can show certain changes which might be indicative of a heart attack.
An analysis of one’s overall health and the symptoms can aid in deciding whether few more tests are required.
How would you prevent a silent heart attack?
- Get your cholesterol and blood pressure count tested regularly.
- Refrain from smoking.
- Be aware of your body and call on a doctor if you feel there’s anything which is bothering you.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

It is often said that, you are what you eat, but did you know that eating certain foods, referred to as superfoods, can support a healthy heart? They are so effective at healing and strengthening the heart that people who eat these foods may almost never suffer from heart disease or heart attack.
The 7 heart healthy superfoods are:
They reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and the incidence of congestive heart failure (CHF). They contain pectin which absorbs artery clogging cholesterol therefore, ensuring more efficient heart function. The potassium in them absorbs salt and lowers blood pressure.
It prevents atherosclerosis - hardening of the arteries with its antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, folate, potassium, vitamin E, and lutein.
It lowers blood pressure and prevents plaque from forming in the arteries. It has minerals and vitamins which keep the brain from producing angiotensin, an enzyme which constricts blood vessels. In fact, clinical studies have shown that regular consumption of garlic slowed plaque growth and hardening by 50%.
4) Red wine
It promotes production of HDL (good cholesterol) which prevents blood clots from forming in the heart. It also contains polyphenols which keeps blood vessels flexible and constantly pushes blood.
5) Dark chocolate
It is rich in flavanols which makes blood vessels more flexible. This also reduces blood pressure.
They contain omega-3 fatty acids which lower triglycerides (harmful cholesterol) levels, raise good cholesterol levels, lower heart arrhythmias, and reduce the inflammation which disrupts plaque, causing it to break away from arteries and form the clots that lead to heart attack.
They contain lean proteins and fiber which reduce blood pressure. People who regularly eat lentils greatly reduce their risk of death from heart disease. They are full of potassium, folate, and magnesium - all minerals which protect the heart from damage done by anti-oxidants.
While heart diseases may not be completely preventable, their risks and effects can be dramatically mitigated by eating the superfoods mentioned above.
