Precautions must be taken at a young age to prevent premature mortality due to CHD. According to statistics, heart disease, including Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), is responsible for 60% of all deaths in India.
More than 52% of deaths in the country caused by heart disease affect people under 70 years of age. People with a family history are vulnerable. Therefore, it is important to raise awareness of a healthy lifestyle and a timely investigation.
AD affects the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart, which increases the risk of heart attack over time. Heart disease can severely affect the lives of people, especially those who are vulnerable. Timely diagnosis and treatment is essential, but it is also imperative that people make healthy lifestyle changes at an early age.
Dr. Manoj Kumar, director and head of the cardiac catheterization lab at the Max-Super Special Hospital in Patparganj, New Delhi, said: "People with a family history of heart disease are more likely to have CHD and high levels of calcium in their arteries. It is therefore important that they have their calcium levels in the coronary arteries checked at regular intervals. If the arteries are no longer supplying the heart with blood, CAD suggests. In this case, the muscles in and around the heart become narrower. This happens due to the accumulation of cholesterol and plaque on the inner walls of the artery. As the accumulation increases, the oxygen supply to the heart decreases, resulting in angina or myocardial infarction. Clogging of the arteries can develop at an early age. While some of it is common, a wrong lifestyle choice can worsen the situation. If you have a parent or sibling with a case of CAD, you must take precautions at a young age to avert the risk.

Dr. Manoj Kumar added, "The tendency for premature CAD in Indians can be attributed to a genetic predisposition involving high levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) or & # 39; Cholesterol includes and metabolic syndrome. In combination with an unhealthy lifestyle, these can affect the heart, which can lead to early mortality and morbidity. It is therefore essential to maintain healthy habits right from the start in order to reduce the risk of contracting CHD and other heart problems.
In CAD, angioplasty is one of the available treatment options. This is done to restore blood flow in the body. In this procedure, a drug-eluting stent is coated with a drug.
