Do You Know a Flu Shot Can Prevent a Heart Attack?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Do You Know a Flu Shot Can Prevent a Heart Attack?

A flu shot can prevent a heart attack! Here’s how.

Every year, heart diseases become a major reason of death all over the world.  But did you know that a simple vaccine like a flu shot can be instrumental in saving you from a heart attack?

Read on to find how this simple vaccine can save your life...

Influenza or flu has been linked with heart diseases for long and patients suffering from these diseases are always advised to be cautious in the flu season to reduce the risk of heart attacks. The ‘Journal of the American Medical Association’ recently published a study, which revealed that people who have already observed symptoms of heart diseases in them, can diminish their chances of getting a heart attack and stroke by opting to get a flu shot. Among the 6735 participants of the study, 50% were given flu shots. The results observed declared that there was 36% less chance of heart diseases and stroke resulting in death in people who had received this vaccine. Moreover, recent sufferers of a heart attack were proved to be at 55% reduced threat of experiencing another major heart problem after taking the shot.

How can the flu vaccine reduce the risk of a heart attack?

The flu vaccine  works towards strengthening your immune system, and thereby decreasing the risks of a potential stroke.

One theory suggests that if a person is suffering from flu, he/she experiences an increased heart rate, elevated body temperature and augmented oxygen content of the blood, besides an alteration in the consistency in blood, which can give rise to a blood clot. Now, heart attack is mostly caused when an artery of a person is 85-90 per cent blocked by plaque, but a person having flu may be at a risk of getting it merely with 40 per cent artery blockage. The function of the flu shot is to prevent flu, which in turn prevents plaque build up in your body, thereby reducing chances of a heart attack.

Another hypothesis is that the flu shot intervenes with the functioning of the immune system of your body, and helps in developing antibodies, which provide better protection against different types of infections, thus preventing heart attacks and strokes.

Madam please measure your BP daily morning and evening, feel like low BP does not mean BP is low. Secondly you are hypothyroid which may cause all these symptoms you have so please check your TSH level again. Then consult your physician. Regards.

I get pain near heart sometimes. Even though got checked with doctors and they say there's no problem with heart. I get pain. Why is that so?

General Physician, Kolkata
Trust your doctor. The pain is most probably a muscle pain. If you work out, or do some strenuous work, take a break and try muscle relaxants or pain killers for the pain,if the pain is too nagging.

Hi. Probably your digestion metabolism is impaired. Use this boiled water. To 1 liter of water add 1/4 tsp jeera and 4 -5 ajwain and boil it. Use it to drink warm. Maintain a clear motion (bowel habits). Most of your problems will reduce.

Okay so I have a showcase coming up and Im not really a person to get nervous over performing but lately I've been feeling shaky, i've been trembling alot, double vision, my heartbeat is really fast even though i'll be enjoying a book not really doing anything strenuous. Is there something medically wrong with me or is this all in my head?

I think it is all due to nervousness. Just try to to calm yourself down. Deep breathing exercises and drinking a lot of water would help you. But if the problem persists get yourself examined by a general physician.

MD - Consultant Physician

Acidity causes also heart pain, take regularly antacid twice daily. But at the same time diet restriction must follow ie no rich, spicy, oily, fry foods to be taken.

26year old male, obese, is having multiple episodes of high blood pressures since last few months, tried diuretics but no improvement. Done with cbc n lipid profile check. Having high serum cholesterol and ldl also low hdl. What to do next?

I am suffering with sleepless nights from a long time so I started to use alprazolam 2pills 500 mg before attempting to sleep. Tell me what are the side effects of this tablets. I came to know that these pills cause heart disease. please tell me if am in danger.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Side effects are addiction negative feelings surface making a person suicidal calmpose is a safer option at 20, avoid any anti anxiety or sleeping tablets. Read books, watch less violence on tv, do positive fruitful activities & avoid negative people. Take a glass of warm milk with a spoon of honey in it. Listening to soothing music helps. Good luck. Do write back in case any doubts remain to be answered.
