Heart Disease Treatment Since Childhood?
Hello doctor. My mother had had heart disease since she was young, and her word has come down from my grandfather. I want to ask how likely is it that the heart disease will decrease to me? Is there a way to prevent it?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
It is true that heart disease has a relationship with a family history of heart disease. However, what shows a significant relationship is a history of heart disease in first-line family members, such as parents and siblings. The history in question is also a history of coronary heart disease at a young age, ie age less than 55 years for male family members, and less than 65 years for female family members. The percentage of the risk of heart disease occurrence in you is difficult to determine with certainty without knowing other factors that influence, including: age, smoking habits, nutritional status (based on body mass index), level of physical activity, and accompanying diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus . Therefore, we recommend that you consult directly with a doctor, a specialist in heart and blood vessels, or a specialist in internal medicine.
As a recommendation at home, you should avoid smoking, maintain your weight within the normal range, exercise regularly, and consume balanced nutritious food. To enrich insight, you can read articles about coronary heart disease. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
