Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels (including heart attacks, stroke and many more), and is the leading cause of death in Ireland. Along with other healthy habits, your diet can play a role in your treatment or disease management and help ward off any further complications. Not everyone has the same symptoms, and some people may not have any before CVD is diagnosed. For this reason, it's important to be aware of the risk factors.

Coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease can't be cured, but treatment can help manage the symptoms and reduce the chances of problems, including heart attacks. These changes include eating a balanced diet, being physically active, giving up smoking, and controlling your blood cholesterol and sugar levels.

 

Q&A

What symptoms should I look out for?

If you suspect that you are at risk of developing CVD or CHD, you should speak with your GP to take blood tests to confirm the diagnosis or evidence of risk factors.

  • High cholesterol
  • Overweight or obese
  • Unhealthy diet and lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood glucose (sugar) readings

What should I do if I am at risk of Cardiovascular disease?

Once you have a diagnosis or, if you are at risk of developing CHD, booking an appointment with a registered dietitian will be your next step. A dietitian can help you to optimise your diet and lifestyle to prevent the development of CHD, manage your condition or prevent progression of the disease.
