High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

How to control heart attacks and taking precautions against heart attacks and taking first aid precautions?
Improving your diet is an important step toward preventing heart disease, but you may feel unsure where to begin. Take a look at the big picture: your overall eating patterns are more important than obsessing over individual foods. No single food can make you magically healthy, so your goal can be to incorporate a variety of healthy foods prepared in healthy ways into your diet, and make these habits your new lifestyle. Eat More: Healthy fats: raw nuts, olive oil, fish oils, flax seeds, or avocados Eat less: Trans fats from partially hydrogenated or deep-fried foods; saturated fats from whole-fat dairy or red meat Eat more: Nutrients: colorful fruits and vegetables?fresh or frozen, prepared without butter Eat less: Packaged foods, especially those high in sodium and sugar Eat more: Fiber: cereals, breads, and pasta made from whole grains or legumes Eat less: White or egg breads, sugary cereals, refined pastas or rice Eat more: Omega 3 and protein: fish and shellfish, poultry Eat less: Red meat, bacon, sausage, fried chicken Eat more: Calcium and protein: Egg whites, skim or 1% milk, low-fat or nonfat cheeses or unsweetened yogurt Eat less: Whole or 2 percent milk, whole milk products like cheese or yogurt, or yogurt with added sugar.

Recently there has been a sharp rise in young strokes and young heart attacks. The major causes behind these incidents are undiagnosed hypertension and hypercholestrolemia. Office workers especially it professionals have a sedentary lifestyle and are prone to such problems. What you can do?

Aside from good healthy habits like good diet and exercise, regularly undergo check ups. Check your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and thyroid function at least twice a year. If diagnosed early these disorders can be well controlled so that adverse events like a young heart attack or stroke can be prevented.
