Whether you have recently suffered a cardiovascular episode or have been told that you are at a risk of one, it can be a frightening experience. The most common form of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is coronary heart disease which is caused by the accumulation of fats and other materials in the coronary arteries. Different CVD problems are a reality for many people in the western world: heart attack, coronary bipass, atherosclerosis, angina… etc. Having undergone a CVD condition along with medication, a specific diet is required, in order not only to prevent a re-occurrence but also to strengthen the recovery.
When compared to the people having suffered an CVD attack, an even larger fraction have risk factors associated with CVD: high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, gender, age and family history. In these situations being informed that you may be at risk can throw life into a tailspin. Lifestyle changes focusing on nutrition and healthy living are vital to help prevent any future potential risk and thus lower the chances of disease progression.
