Hi The results of the Lp (a) test will vary depending on the laboratory where the sample was analyzed. Normal values for this test are less than 30 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL. If the results are greater than the 30 mg/dL threshold, this may indicate increased risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, or stroke. As with elevated high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, an elevated Lp-PLA (2) level approximately doubles the risk for primary and secondary cardiovascular events. Your diet can be greatly responsible for high cholesterol level in the body. Hence, before indulging in any type of food, it is important to know your food and how it impacts you. Include oats, beans and legumes, okra, mustard seeds, soy,tomato, ginger etc in your meals and must do exercise regularly. Please consult your doctor for medicines.

Depends on situation, do not stop without medical supervision if you have an artificial heart valve. If you are taking for vein clots, discuss with Dr. first. If you are taking for atrial fibrillation, it can usually be stopped safely and restarted after procedure.

What to Do After a Heart Attack: Changes to Your Lifestyle!

If you had suffered a heart attack recently, it is quite natural to for a patient to feel weak as the heart goes through a tremendous amount of stress during the condition. So, it is very important for a heart patient to know the things that will help you them recover from it. A healthy diet is the first step towards the recovery. A proper diet can not only help you recover quickly, but you won’t suffer from a second attack too. So, to recover and get back to your daily lifestyle, you must keep these foods in your daily diet.

  1. Fruits and Vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are a must and are of paramount importance when it comes to recovering from a heart attack. The most significant advantage is that they have lower calories and at the same time they provide sufficient nutrition. They will keep your blood pressure at a standard level and thus promote the health of your heart. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in potassium can also combat and balance the counter-effects that result from sodium. So, avoid your oily snacks and have fruits instead.
  2. Nuts: You must have already been aware of the several advantages of consuming almonds. Another addition to its advantages is aiding the process of recovery after a heart attack. However, it is to be noted that nuts are good for a person who has suffered a heart attack only if they are not salted.
  3. Whole Grains: The refined grains tend to lose their nutrients while on the other hand whole grains are rich in fiber and nutrients. They will keep your blood pressure in check and promote the well-being of your heart.

What to avoid?
Apart from the items mentioned above, there are several foods that you must avoid at all costs. The first one that comes in this list is the food items that are rich in sugar content. This will lead to an increase in weight and thus aggravate heart problems. You must also avoid salty foods as they will increase your blood pressure. Avoid meats and eggs as much as you can as they are highly rich in cholesterol which is another factor that must be avoided.

Follow a diet chart that incorporates the do’s and don’ts to have a speedy recovery and get back to normal routine.

Go for angioplasty don't take any risk because it's the complicated situation. If % of blockage is more so don't go alternative things. If less then 30% so you can think about it.
