Do not allow the individual to exert himself, do not let him walk or climb stairs. In fact, in the case of heart diseases found in any individual, should carry aspirin tables consisting of 325mg minimum to consume it, more over the doctor might be prescribed sorbitrate tablets; give 10mg of it as well.

Those suffering from stress (physical or mental), those who are obese, those who smoke, consume alcohol, have faulty dietary habits, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, hyper tensions, diabetes, or are aging, or have family history of heart disease are at risk. While males are at higher risk, the risk is the same for postmenopausal females, as they no longer have the protective impact of the hormone oestrogen.

“Have an annual, master health check-up once you are over 40, “recommends, every consultant of cardiologist. Quit smoking, as even a cigarette a day is a big risk factor. Regular isotonic exercise such as walking is advisable. However, isometric exercise such as weight training strains the heart. Saturated fat found in butter, cheese, cake, ice cream, pizza, biscuits and cookies and fried food is harmful to the heart. Cholesterol deposition is a continuous process and can start in childhood, so even kids cannot be allowed to gorge on these food items, while adults over 25 should indulge in them sparingly. Poly unsaturated fatty acids (PU FA) are good for the heart. They are found in fish oil, and some vegetable oils such as olive oil and mustard oil. However, even these should be used only in small quantities.
