Heart attack diet

Common Questions and Answers about Heart attack diet


Avatar n tn At a routine visit to the Dr the ekg showed I had had a mild heart attack. I remember when it happened but thought it was a bad case of heartburn with chest pain and feeling very sick to my stomach. It last about 10 min. A ct scan was done with no damage to my heart, but am I likely to have another one? I am a 59 yr old female with high blood pressure but not overweight. Thanks...
17567 tn?1276202029 So, awhile back I started getting left arm pain, which is generally a wake up sound for a heart attack? Rather than ignore it and hope it goes away I actually did something about it... and went to a cardiologist. After a few tests he tells me my heart is fine but by cholesterol is very high (260) and puts me on lipitor. Cardiologists are very big on driving blood pressure and cholesterol down towards zero needless to say.
Avatar f tn Hi Chas715 Can you speak to the doctor who originally said you might need a bypass and ask him what is the reason for delay or holding back on doing it? Sorry that you feel they never listened to you before the heart attack. :-( What else could you do? Is there a chance to change doctors? Or find a way to get them to communicate more clearly to you? I'm no expert but i think people must feel helpless at times, especially when these people are seen to be 'experts'.....
Avatar n tn So much depends on how well he has controlled his diabetes during the years before the heart attack, how well he is controlling the diabetes NOW, how his cholesterol levels have been, his diet, his exercise, etc. We are individual humans and no two people are alike.

Avatar f tn I am a 43 year old female who has just had a major heart attack.........was flown by life star to a better hospital........i know i had a stent put in but was told that my ef was 15-25 percent. stress has caused alot of my problems due to the fact that I had just lost my father to heart failure 1 week prior to my event. my question is can i improve my heart function??
Avatar f tn That's easy for your doctor to say, since he didn't have a heart attack! I'm curious as to what your diet is. Do you eat store bought crappy food with lots of additives, do you use the microwave oven (lots of free radicals are eaten thanks to microwaved foods) and eat 'low fat' foods? Do you eat at fast food places? Do you use cheap vegetable oils when you cook? Are you a vegetarian or vegan? All these things can contribute to heart attacks or worse.
Avatar n tn One of our close friends just had a heart attack. I am wondering the differences between heart disease and having a heart attack. What is the difference between the care ie elliminating salt from your diet or fats. Both men have received different advise as far as diet and excercise go and I don't understand why. Also why would there not be follow up treatment to access if heart disease is present in our friend who had the heart attack?
Avatar n tn I have had what was diagnosed as a heart attack. However, a ultra sound and an angiogram revealed a very healthy heart. Still waiting to see a cardiologist. This happened 2 weeks ago. How long do I need to recuperate and what should I be eating. Am not overweight and exercise daily (until I had this attack). Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn i was just googling my symptoms and found these symptoms linked again and again with heart attacks I was wondering if you think this could have actually been a heart attack. I dont really like doctors, and hate feeling like a time waster. I would just like your opinion on what you think this may have been. Thankyou.
Avatar n tn Your question highlights an important point - heart attacks do occur in young people. Risk factors for having a heart attack are genetic, diet related, high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, and male sex. It sounds like you are following a good strategy to reduce your risk of further attacks by following a low fat/cholesterol diet and having quit smoking (the best thing you could have done). In addition you can reduce your risk further by increasing your activity level.

378425 tn?1305628294 I am really worried and tired no sleep last night, My mum was life flighted out she has had a heart attack...My emotions of late have been so much of a roller coaster ride. I came on here to write and I am just so tired I cannot seem to concentrate.
967168 tn?1477584489 maybe maybe not? I know how quirky EKG/ECG machines are so I'm really hoping this time it's a false reading. My Primary found a new murmur and I've been so sick for about 5-6 months; not feeling right, more winded than normal, major headaches, different types of chest pain than before and ALOT more fainting spells even with my ICD.
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.
Avatar m tn I thought I had a mild heart attack after bending down to get kitty toys off floor. First felt nausea, pain in jaw. Heart thomping so bad that I had to lay down and not move. I also took aspirin.
868812 tn?1286115453 My husband, Jeff had a heart attack last Sunday. He almost died. There is no option but to clean up our diet.....and no resistance from him now either.
Avatar n tn Hi Judy- very interesting question. You have mentioned several issues and I will address them separately. 1. Stress cardiomyopathy (CM)/"heart attack" - We see this quite often. Stress CM has several other names - "Tako Tsubo"/"broken heart"/apical-ballooning CM. It refers to a condition where (mostly) women develop chest pain after suffering some sort of emotional or physical stress, and the EKG and blood work suggest a significant heart attack.
2123020 tn?1335045458 Hi there, Uncontrolled blood pressure can result in severe complications like stroke, heart attack .kidney failure etc.Besides taking your medications regularly there are certain things which should be taken care of. You should maintain a healthy weight range for your height and body type. Exercise or brisk walk daily for 30-45 minutes can help in alleviating stress. Limiting sodium intake by eliminating table salt, cooking salt, and salty and processed foods can help in some extent.
2005895 tn?1327721790 my 14 y.o. niece is suffering from panic attack or anxiety attack. she has a history of malingering when she was 5 y.o. as a result of her parents separation. my question is, is this forever? shes taking exulten a muscle relaxant. shes banned to take caffeinated food or drinks. sometimes she ate white chocolate. she said lately that before her attack she'll feel sudden thinning of her breathing.. thin air and short air and chest pain. im a bit confuse why her doctors..
Avatar n tn My husband is 39 and had a heart attack 2.5 years ago. He is taking an immense amount of medication for blood pressure, cholesteral, and his heart and has actually gained weight, even though he watches his portion sizes and works out at the gym. He says he feels "puffed up". He can't get his ring off of his finger anymore! He seems very bloated. His regular doctor told him to eat only 1200 calories a day. His cardiologist told him to keep working out and eat right.
Avatar n tn these must be kept from worsening to save the remainder of the muscle. Lowering your risk for another heart attack is paramount. No smoking, healthy diet, avoiding emotional stress are the key elements for this. No one can give even a rough idea of how long your heart will last and it really is best to stop thinking in those terms. Live each day as it comes, lower your risk factors and stay positive. You will be looking back in years to come and thinking "has it been that long".
