What are the specific foods to stay away from and what are specific foods that would help ? I am 67 year old male and going thru testing on my condition now. My health is good to excellent and I exercise now.
Should I rise the heart rate to standard norms for my age 150 to 160 bpm for a long period ? Thank you
“Roll out the reindeer and berries for Nordic health fix,” The Daily Telegraph tells us, reporting that a Scandinavian diet can lower cholesterol and may reduce the risk of heart disease. Meanwhile, the Mail Online website tells us to “forget the Mediterranean diet” in favour of Nordic foods.
Hello. I am looking for some advice to improve my heart health.Several months ago I was afraid I was having serious cardiac issues but after several medical tests it became clear my symptoms were due to a developed anxiety disorder. However, this has still made me want to take steps to improve my heart health.A little information about me: I am a 30 year old male, am about 40 pounds overweight, and quit smoking about 6 months ago. As far as exercise, I walk a mile 3-4 days a week and do strength training (pushups, free weights, etc.) 3 days a week.I also take 81 mg aspirin and fish oil daily.With all that said, what can I do to improve my heart health? Thank you.
Heart healthy living includes a lot more than strength training and weight lifting. Neither is walking a few miles/week an adequate exercise for a young and otherwise healthy person.
The American economy took off following the end of World War II, fattening both our wallets and our waistlines. In this video, Academic Earth examines the post-war boom that busted our seams. Take a look at this article and video, submitted by Lisa Miller, a contributor to Academic Earth:
I was sitting working on some home work when I had a sharp pinching feeling slightly to the left of the center of my chest over my heart. The feeling lasted less than two minutes. About 30 mins later i had another one and shortly after i had a big burp. I continue to burp. I became hot not flushed but I have anxiety and the pain instantly flipped the switch to my anxiety. My anxiety has been pretty good lately but heart problemare a main worry for me. In the last year I have had a echo, ecg, I wore a halter monitor for 48 hours and everything was normal. My BP has been under control as well I am 24 yo female overweight and Imy cholesterole is mid 200s last I knew. Is the stabbing chest pain a symptom of angina or a heart attack. Now that my anxiety is triggered I will continue to worry about it.
Diabetes affects nearly 26 million people, 8.3 percent of the U.S. population, or almost 100 million people if patients with pre-diabetes are included. The number of Americans with diabetes is projected to double or triple by 2050.
I am 45m female, BMI 33, waist 100cm, sedentary lifestyle. Blood pressure and cholesterol under control with medication. Had a few episodes of extreme shortness of breath, nausea, heaviness in the chest, restlessness that becomes worse if lying down. All episodes happened at rest and one in my sleep. Went to A&E, all ECGs and blood tests normal. Echo and Stress test normal. I worry for unstable angina. Is there a definitive examination that gives an answer?
Your symptoms are entirely consistent with being severely overweight. The tests have excluded your heart (for now) as the cause. Even if your heart is OK for now, you are at considerable risk in the (near) future. You can check this here.
