â–ªAdopting a healthy lifestyle is key to prevention of heart diseases and stroke.


▪Adopting unhealthy routines like eating poorly, exercising less, or leaning more heavily on substances such as alcohol, smoking and drug abuse, could increase the potential risks of heart diseases in general and heart attacks in particular. 


â–ªThere are many modifiable risk factors responsible for heart diseases that can be modified well in healthy ways to prevent the latter from occurring.


â–ªControlling your blood pressure and blood sugar levels, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and monitoring your cholesterol and triglyceride levels and keeping them under control are crucial hallmarks in prevention of heart diseases.


â–ªIn addition to that, controlling your lifestyle choices such as avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption are too important to help in prevention of heart diseases.


▪We have seen amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the incidence of heart attacks at home have increased and lead to various cardiac deaths which is a sort of concern.  Cardiac death is largely preventable if patients with a heart attack come to hospital in time to get treatment.


â–ªIf you think you are having any heart issue, don't ride it out at home because you're worried about COVID. It is really important to come to hospital and get evaluated so you can get the problem taken care of early.


▪People should also avoid unnecessary stress in their lives by following a good health routine as research has shown that the inflammation caused by depression can increase a person’s risk for a heart attack.
