Make a healthy heart your goal

This year World Heart Day focusing on women and children to bust the myth that heart disease and stroke primarily affects older, affluent men; But here we want to raise awareness that women are affected equally to men and children are also vulnerable to it. It is commonest cause of death in women and children world wide.

 Increasing incidence of cardiac disease is associated with
 Obesity or overweight
 Physical inactivity
 High blood pressure
 High blood cholesterol
 Diabetes

Also the tobacco usage and etc.

To mark the celebration of World Heart Day, one has to think positively, how to reduce their own and their family’s risk of heart disease and stroke (CVD) as healthy children lead to healthy adults and healthy adults lead to healthy families and communities.

Following are the initial steps towards a heart-healthy life.

Get active
Even 30 minutes of activity a day can help to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Try to make exercise a regular part of your life: use the stairs instead of the lift, get off the bus a few stops earlier and walk the rest of the way.

Stop smoking and protect yourself from tobacco
Your risk of coronary heart disease will be halved within a year and will return to a normal level over time. Avoid smoke-filled environments: exposure to second-hand smoke significantly increases risk of heart attack.

Maintain a healthy weight
Keeping a healthy weight and limiting your salt intake will help to control your blood pressure and lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Know your numbers
Have your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels checked regularly. High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for stroke and a major factor for approximately half of all heart disease and stroke. High blood cholesterol and glucose levels can also place you at greater risk.

Eat healthily
Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, a variety of whole grain products, lean meat, fish, peas, beans, lentils, and foods low in saturated fats. Be wary of processed foods, which often contain high levels of salt. Drink lots of water!

Know the warning signs
Heart attacks often manifest themselves differently in women than in men.

  • Chest discomfort, including squeezing, discomfort or pain in the center of the chest, between the breasts or behind the breastbone.
  • Discomfort and/or pain spreading to other areas of the upper body such as one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath, unexplained weakness or fatigue, anxiety or unusual nervousness, indigestion or gas-like pain, breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, lightheadedness and collapse are signs which one out of four women having a heart attack experience, but do not recognize. These symptoms may occur with or without chest discomfort

         These signs could come and go.

Warning signs of stroke (BRAIN HEMORRHAGE) include  

                   

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body.
  • Sudden confusion, difficulty speaking or understanding speech.
  • Sudden trouble seeing with one or both eyes.
  • Sudden difficulty walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause
  • Sudden fainting or unconsciousness

 

Carefully take your medication

Take the medication that your doctor has prescribed

Protect your entourage:
share activities with your family (walk, garden, play ball games), cook healthy meals at home, organize a lunchtime run, swim or yoga class with your colleagues

In the last most important aspect we need to emphasize is –Getting yourself checked regularly and get preventive health check up done. This is to detect the problem at  an early stage so that one can take action before irreversible damage to heart or other vital organs have occurred.

CT coronary angiography is one such test which is very easy, painless, quick testing of heart and shows blockage in the arteries supplying the heart. One can then take preventive measures, adopt healthy eating, start exercise and medicines to prevent progression of disease and even regress it. If there is blockage one can go for stenting or byepass surgery before getting a heart attack.

So lets  everyone take a road to healthy heart and healthy life.
