The Right Treatment For Congenital Heart Disease Since Childhood?
I want to ask, the doctor said maybe I will take medication for life because I have heart disease since birth but I just had the disease since graduating from high school and started working. the sort?
Congenital heart disease is a condition in which there are abnormalities in the heart, and congenital heart disease itself can be of various types.
ASD (atrial septal defect) is a condition where there is interference with the heart divider between the atria. If ASD is severe and only caught when you are in high school, it may have caused an enlarged heart and pulmonary hypertension can occur.
Not all congenital heart diseases can be treated using cardiac catheterization. Using cardiac catheterization must be with the right indication, and not all congenital heart disease conditions are suitable or appropriate when catalyzed. Usually ASD may be overcome by performing surgery, but it also depends on your current situation.
If indeed surgery cannot be performed, then usually congenital heart sufferers will take the drug for life. But this is not dangerous as long as you routinely carry out regular control to a heart specialist.
Do not take any medicine or any traditional medicine because it can worsen your situation. don't smoke and don't consume alcohol.
