Common Questions and Answers about Heart disease exercise studies


Avatar m tn Atkins has more research on it than any other diet because it was developed originally to prevent heart disease (the creator, Dr. Atkins, died of heart disease!) The research showed that the diet did not work in the long run and was unhealthy in the long run, as it's too high in protein and too low in antioxidant rich foods. That's not to say it doesn't have its champions, but it hasn't panned out as hoped over time.
Avatar m tn Aerobic exercise has the most benefits for your heart. Over time, aerobic exercise can help decrease your heart rate and blood pressure and improve your breathing. I have been doing 30 minutes a day on the treadmill and resistance training with heavy weights for about 10 years. Seems to help...

Erijon is correct in that these individual cases are often used to try and disprove the benefits of medications, but they never use the full story. It's the same with the French paradox for the English. Our neighbours consume tons of dairy products yet have very little instance of heart disease compared to us.

Mammo is correct, you should in my opinion exercise daily, take a statin drug that your doctor recommends, but don't take this lightly. Are you diabetic, and do you have high blood pressure? I'd also address these issues aggressively. Stay in touch.
Avatar n tn Also, my pulse rate is usually high around 90+ during this recovery time. My heart has been checked out okay but these palps after exercise are really bothersome. They also will last for most of the day once they start. Any ideas what's causing this?
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 n tn This is because your heart is not getting enough blood under stress. Also, if your heart disease is more of a form of cardiomyopathy such as LVH or dilation of the heart, you may feel more rhythm issues. Everyone is different so everyone feels things differently. Unfortunately a heart attack is the first symptom 50% of those with heart disease experience so it is important to have this talk with your doctor.

Your doctor may check for this sign by pressing a finger against your ankle or shin bone to see if a depression is left behind. This is called "pitting edema.
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.
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?
Avatar m tn If you are out of shape, and overweight then I am guessing you don't exercise much (logical conclusion). With lack of exercise, you are not going to notice the limitations much, but now that you are being affected with low exertion then I would concur with the Cardiologist that there must be a significant blockage. If thee is anyway that you can get the Angiogram then I would have it done because it can become 100% quite quickly.
