Avatar f tn The first is to educate your children about heart disease as soon as you believe they are old enough to understand and begin to take charge of their health. It is never too early to begin heart healthy habits, including diet, exercise, and weight management. The most important part of that education is to teach by example. The second suggestion is to have this conversation with your primary care physician.

15915009 tn?1488868338 I came across a thread about children with Graves' Disease. I also believe that Graves' Disease need to be researched more, especially in kids since its so rare to have a child diagnosed with it. It is always misdiagnosed and takes the wrong kind of specialty area (e.g. cardiology for the fast heart rate or psychology for the anxiety and lack of concentration) to find nothing wrong with them, when there was with all of these presenting symptoms.
Avatar n tn 1. If you smoke, quit smoking. This is the single biggest thing a person can modify in their life. Smoking will significantly increase one's risk of having a heart attack. 2. Maintain an active lifestyle - Try to get some regular exercise. 3. Follow a strict low fat diet. Some may even consider following a vegetarian diet. 4. Maintain regular follow-up with your doctor. All of these will help and some medication may be necessary if your doctor feels it is needed. Good Luck to you.

Avatar n tn Dear Tetz, Unfortunately, you give me no information about this child, other than the hint that there is complex heart disease. Therefore, all I can tell you is that children with complex congenital cardiac defects typically have a significantly shortened life span without surgical intervention. With surgical intervention, most (but not all) children with these defects have a greatly improved duration and quality of life.
