Coronary Heart Disease

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major cause of death globally.

The main symptoms of CHD are: 

 

However, not everyone has the same symptoms and some people may not have any before CHD is diagnosed. For this reason, it is important to be aware of the risk factors.

Risk factors for developing CHD:

·         High cholesterol

·         Overweight or obese

·         Unhealthy diet and lifestyle

·         Smoking

·         High blood pressure

·         High blood glucose (sugar) readings

 

Coronary heart disease can't be cured but treatment can help manage the symptoms and reduce the chances of problems such as heart attacks.

You can reduce your risk of getting CHD by making some simple lifestyle changes. These include:

·         eating a healthy, balanced diet 

·         being physically active

·         giving up smoking

·         controlling blood cholesterol and sugar levels

Q&A

What should you do if you think you are at risk of CHD?

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

Once you have a diagnosis or, if you are at risk of developing CHD, booking an appointment with a 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.
