The risk of heart disease can be predicted
Things to know to protect heart health, and expert answers to heart questions
- What are the heart problems in children?
Heart problems in children are congenital heart valve problems, weakening of the heart muscle due to the virus, and congenital heart failure. Up to five out of every 1,000 children have congenital heart problems. All these can be treated at an early age.
- How high cholesterol causes heart attacks. What can be done to lower cholesterol?
The coronary artery receives energy from the heart muscle. Cholesterol is deposited in them. About 10-30 percent of everyone's arteries contract. However, if the coronary artery is more than 70% short, it can cause chest pain and difficulty. When sitting idle
Doesn't look difficult. More than 90% of the block is painful when sitting alone. Heart Attack occurs when a sudden blockage of 100% is completely blocked. 100% block in all Attack. If cardiovascular compression is less than 70%, then medical therapy is sufficient. More than 70% require angio-plastic.
Lifestyle modification is required to reduce cholesterol. Cholesterol is not only caused by eating fatty foods. Cholesterol can be high even when you are not eating fat. It is our way of eating more of the rice meal. Cholesterol can be converted to liver if the food you eat is not consumed completely.

Exercise and diet can help prevent cholesterol levels.
- Alcohol and smoking can cause heart disease
Smoking can lead to heart disease in many ways. First, it increases the risk of blood clots. The second is bad cholesterol, or LDL. Good cholesterol, or LDL, can lower cholesterol. Tobacco contains more than 100 deadly chemicals that can harm blood and blood vessels.
Even if there are only a small number of arteries in the arteries due to cholesterol, there will be wounds in smokers and blood clots. Even if you quit smoking, your risk of heart attack decreases by 50% in the first year. Smoker's heart failure risk reaches 10 years after smoking cessation.
While alcohol does not directly cause heart attacks, alcohol is not good for the heart. It will increase blood pressure. Irregular heartbeat. Although the low level of alcohol was previously said to increase good cholesterol, the new suggestion is that alcohol should not be consumed.
- Have a heart attack without chest pain. It is more likely in diabetic patients
Patients with diabetic neuropathy (diabetic neuropathy) may not experience severe chest pain. Fatigue can only be seen in such people. It's called the Silent Attack.
- Can the heart block be removed without medication or surgery. Is there truth in such claims?
None of these claims have been scientifically proven. Many people do this by calling it Keeling Therapy. When coagulation is performed and re-angiogenic in many patients, the block may appear to be old. In many people the block is increased and the muscle weakens.
- Can heart disease be detected in advance. Which test to do
The ECG should be looked at first to predict the risk of heart disease. TMT should be done if it is normal. You need to do echocasts to see if they have been attacked before. Once all three are done, the risk of heart disease is predicted.
- What are the new advances in cardiovascular health?
Stent treatment is now commonplace. Heart transplants are also on the rise. One of the new treatments is the valve replacement. This is done by using the balloon to deliver the valve to the heart, expanding the balloon and replacing the valve. Another is the new injection of cholesterol. A heart attack vaccine is also being tested.
- People who have had a heart attack at a later time should look at what's happening later
If heart attacks are normalized after treatment for heart attacks, they can lead normal lives. If the heart pumping slows down due to delay in treatment, no matter how many medications you take, there will be less fatigue. That is why it is important to take timely treatment.Take one or two weeks of rest after treatment. After that, the blood dilution medication should be taken exactly as prescribed by the doctor. You need to control your risk and exercise regularly so that the block may come back. Healthy changes in diet and cholesterol testing should be done every three months. Keeping cholesterol at 150 is good. One month for those who have had bypass surgery
Once you can do the usual things. Physical activity is only three months away.
- What can be done to prevent heart disease?
Since 30 year olds in Kerala are at risk of heart attacks, the risk factors should be evaluated at the age of 30. BP, Sugar and Cholesterol should be checked. Normally, this should be repeated every two to three years.
If there is more, it should be treated. Lifestyle changes should be made so that they can be changed.
The ECG should look at the risk factors and the pathogenesis of heart disease. If ECG is normal, then it is safe to say that Heart Attack has not yet arrived. Then check the Treadmill Test (TMT) to see if there is a block. Echo can also be used to see if the heart muscle is normal. If there are any problems you should seek treatment. Regular exercise is essential to prevent a heart attack.
Exercise 30 minutes five days a week. Also, care should be taken to keep the weight healthy.
Red meat should be avoided in the diet. Salt consumption should be minimized. Consumption of salt should not exceed 4-6 grams daily. People with high BP should avoid pickles or papaya which are high in salt.
