What do you need to know about heart disease prevention?

Consultant cardiologist Navin Chandra explains what you need to do to prevent heart disease.

So heart disease prevention is quite a challenging issue. Often people present with heart disease as their initial problem and you could argue that prevention is already too late in those cases.

One of the important issues about heart disease prevention actually is addressing your diet and lifestyle changes early on to try and minimize your chance of developing heart disease at a later date. So having a healthy balanced diet, getting regular exercise and not smoking is very important going forward.

Other important risk factors to think about are things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking, as I already mentioned. And the problem with a lot of these things are you don’t often manifest these with symptoms and so it’s very important you’re addressing these even from the beginning when you’re worried about preventing heart disease going forward.
