What To Do If You Have Suffered From Coronary Artery Disease?

What To Do If You Have Suffered From Coronary Artery Disease?

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Maintain a healthy weight: Being overweight or obese aggravates any disease. So it is important to keep your body weight perfect.
  5. Taking medicines as prescribed: It is important to take medicines regularly and as prescribed by the physician.
  6. 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. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 84 yrs. Old, and have varicose veins for last 10-12 years on both legs, without any pain. But I have often scratching on foot-joints of eczema. Can this be due to veins? What creams are best for this?

Please use compression stockings. It will reduce the itching. Any moisturizer will help soothe the skin. If the eczema is bad, please consult a skin specialist. However, if you don’t wear compression stockings, the symptoms will not reduce just with creams.

My palms veins are visible sometimes and sometimes it's not. I can see bluish/greenish vei in palms and sometimes it hurts even if I lift a remote. What can be the cause? I feel weakness and fatigue from long time.

It is ok to see the veins, but if you are having pain, that needs evaluation. Please get a venous and arterial doppler of your affected hands and consult a vascular surgeon. Take care.

My mom is 44 years old. Height 160 cm and weight is 76 kg. She is having varicose veins. Can you please suggest good workout for reducing her weight. Is brisk walking is good for reducing weight, then tell me the speed/km she want to walk and how much time to take walking?

MBBS

Hi! She can go for a slow walk for 30 to 45 min everyday if she doesn't have any bone pains. Also she must check her diet like less oil in the cooking, less calories diet. And she can start yoga also. By taking care of her exercise, diet and yoga she can reduce her weight in a healthy manner. Also she must use good walking shoes instead of slippers that way her knees and back won't hurt.
