I agree heart attack sounds like a scary yet a fierce health condition. A heart attack is nothing but the death of a segment of heart muscles. This happens when there is no blood supply to your heart.
The heart stops working as it becomes devoid of blood. It can prove out to be fatal if its early signs are ignored and left untreated.
The cause of a heart attack is when an artery stops supplying blood to the heart when blocked by a blood clot. Some of the common symptoms are:
- Chest pain/ discomfort
- Pain that extends to jaws, shoulders, neck, and back
- Excessive sweating
- Shortness of breath
- Pale face
The risk of having a heart attack increases at the age of 50 for men and 55 for women. Some of the common factors that lead to a heart attack are obesity, chronic health conditions, blood clots, smoking, overstress, and poor lifestyle along with poor diet.
Indeed, a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet will decrease the risk of a heart attack. There is still a lot of information you ought to know about a it.
