Common Questions and Answers about Heart disease exercise and aging


967168 tn?1477584489 In the heart disease forum there's a thread about pvc's and exercise. Recovery PVCs During Treadmill Testing Tied to Heart Disease - http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/571891 http://archinte.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/168/2/225?maxtoshow=&hits=10&RESULTFORMAT=&fulltext=Recovery+PVCs+During+Treadmill+Testing+Tied+to+Heart+Disease&searchid=1&FIRSTINDEX=0&resourcetype=HWCIT#IOI70198T3 thoughts?
Avatar n tn Without exercise, the stenosis decreases cardicac output and the heart can be overworked and weakened trying toi meet oxygen demand. A stronger heart with exercise helps the heart to meet the demand effectively.
Avatar f tn Also have MVP with moderate regurgitation and hypothyroidism. Exercise very regularly, non smoker, occasional glass of wine. Healthy eating habits and weight. Family history of atherosclerosis, father died of heart attack at 54yo (very unhealthy lifestyle). Blood pressure usually 100/60, occasional palpitations. Meds: synthroid, inderal, aspirin. Is there anything else I can do to stay healthy or am I predestined for heart disease or stroke?
Avatar n tn I have a family history of cardiomyopathy and heart disease. I have been having funny heart flutters and fatigue. My GP sent me off to have an echocardiogram. The results showed sinus arrhythmia, and mitral and aortic annular calcification. I am 39 years old do I need to follow up with the GP or is this an okay result?
1028452 tn?1537448484 This causes cellular dysfunction, aging and eventually, death. Exercise slows down the shortening of telomeres. One study found that, for every hour of physical activity, you gain an hour of life. So enjoy that dance. Think of it as “free time!” 3. Sip some red wine. Moderate alcohol consumption, especially red wine, is linked to a longer life. Reason: a compound in red wine (and grapes) called resveratrol influences the genes that play a role in controlling your lifespan.
1085002 tn?1256414949 I went to m doctor for a check up, and she did an EKG and referred me to a heart doctor for a stress test. I took the first one, that they stopped because they said my blood pressure should be going up andmin went down, so they had me retake it putting in some radiation to see how things looked After taking that test, they found some areas they could not tell about so referred me for a heath Cath. I was totally SHOCKED to learn I had 4 large arteries that were 50% BLOCKED.
Avatar n tn The main thing about an echo is that your cardiologist said your heart was normal structurally, no heart disease. You should retest in a few years and make sure the leakage isn't getting worse, but this is all pretty normal. There is no way I know of to reverse this, only thing I know of is a valve replacement, but that's only for pretty severe cases. You should direct any questions concerning exercise to your doctor but I would imagine there's no issue there either. Good luck!
Avatar f tn To provide a perspective, if your fitness level is good your recovery rate after your work and hot environment should be below 100 within 2 minutes at rest and away from the heat. A slow reduction in the heart rate after exercise is beneficial to the heart. However, if the heart rate has not dropped by more than 12 bpm one minute after stopping exercise this may indicate health issue.
11360622 tn?1417799519 Senior cats should see the vet once a year for a complete health checkup--diabetes, kidney disease, Hyperthyroidism will sneak up on you as they age and they will need specific meds to help them along. Try to brush your baby everyday with a VERY soft brush so they will feel beautiful, since aging makes it difficult to get to those hard to reach grooming places. This is also a wonderful way of keeping that loving bond between you and checking for any lumps or skeletal irregularities.
Avatar m tn My parents have slightly high cholesterol levels, however they are in their 60’s and they have never had any heart problems and are not diabetic. I had one grandma who was diabetic and had angina and she died from a heart in her late 60’s. Everyone else in my family appears to be healthy and I have never had any health complications. Approximately a year ago I was going through a particularly stressful time in my life and I started having panic attacks for the first time out of nowhere.
86819 tn?1378947492 We are afraid of hypertension, but BP is supposed to increase during exercise. I read somewhere that a healthy heart should be able to maintain a product of systolic (diastolic doesn't matter during exercise) and heart rate of at least 30.000 (mmhg/minute). For example, a heart rate of 170 and a systolic BP of 176. That's a proof that the heart is able to pump rapidly lots of blood against increased vascular resistance. In my case, my HR was 210 and so was my systolic BP.
Avatar m tn Your doctor knows the major limitation of the stress test approach is that it requires high-grade stenosis to indicate heart attack risk. And high-grade stenosis, while a good indicator of advanced arterial disease, is NOT the major cause of myocardial infarctions (heart attack).
Avatar f tn I have been on coreg and vasotec since early on and have been well controlled with my EF staying around 43-45%. The last year I have had decreased exercise tolerance and my EF has gone down to around 40%. I exercise regularly and am very frustrated that I can't run anymore. My resting HR is too low to increase the coreg and my BP too low to increase vasotec. I can't run without my HR going into the 150's. I start to get SOB if I try to sustain a HR above 140.
Avatar m tn My concern is ,is this something that can be brought on by my condition or has it been there for awhile and is it something I need to keep a look at. Heart disease, diabetes and cancer is high in my immediate family.I have just recently started a running program to run a marathon, should I get this tested before I commit to such training.
Avatar f tn Usually, the diagnosis with a heart valve indicates degree of blood back flow (regurgitation) and a prolapse indicates the leaflets do not close the valve opening when the heart pumps blood into circulation. A prolapse is not usually a problem and many people go through life without any harmful effects or progression. Calcification of the aorta can buildup around the valve opening (orifice) and restrict the amount of blood pumped into circulation with each heartbeat.
Avatar m tn Muscles that are not well conditioned do not work well and require extra effort to perform including your heart which can lead to heart disease. 30 mins of moderate exercise most days of the week is normally sufficient to help promote cardiac health.
Avatar f tn After all that has been said I can also just confirm: familial cholestorol is the primary reason for CAD's (coronary artery disease) and other heart related problems. My mum has CAD since her early 30's and Ischemic heart disease she is diabetic and she has Porphyria but she smoked all her life (quit 10 yrs ago, but the damage was already done), she is obese and unhealthy diet.
Avatar f tn Anyone with heart disease needs to know that there is no cure, and it takes total commitment in treatment. It will take some time to get the right combination of meds, building up the strength to exercise daily and of course, quitting some things we do that are not right for our well being.
1281603 tn?1283798699 I am 54 years old, previously healthy. I had an MRI to rule out MS, as I have had extreme fatigue, exercise intolerance and pain for the last few months, to the point I have been unable to work. The MRI found "numerous punctate T2/FLAIR hyperintensities in the suncortical regions of both cerebral hemispheres. The inpression was that they are "most likely on the basis of chronic microvascular disease", and unlikely MS, as there are no features of demyelination.
Avatar n tn ) I think your answer is the right one. What I meant is also..still normal, but almost not normal.:).....if we put abnormal over normal ...but if we put in under....OK....I'll stop .. ...it reminds me if the "glass is half full or half empty?
