Always talk with your Local Cardiologist about the information you learnt from the videos in regards to Atrial Fibrillation treatments and procedures the Local Cardiologist could perform and if they would be appropriate for you. Remember good information from your Local Cardiologist is the corner stone to understanding your Coronary Microvascular Disease condition or disease.

Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat, also called an arrhythmia, that can increase your risk of heart failure, stroke, blood clots and other heart conditions. It’s normal to feel stressed and anxious about undergoing a procedure for your atrial fibrillation. Everyone does. But keep in mind that we have a whole team of people involved in order to help reduce your stress and anxiety. Coronary artery disease: As plaque builds up it narrows your coronary arteries, decreasing blood flow to your heart. This decreased blood flow can cause chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations and sweating. A complete blockage can lead to a heart attack.
Heart disease symptoms depend on the type of heart disease you have. However, there are some common cardiovascular disease symptoms that many people experience including:
Atrial fibrillation isn't usually life threatening, but it is a serious medical condition that requires treatment. If you experience atrial fibrillation symptoms, consult with your doctor. Your physician may recommend an electrocardiogram to diagnose your heart condition. The goal of atrial fibrillation treatment is to restore your normal heart rate and rhythm and prevent blood clots
For Heart Disease: Eggplants uniquely high potassium and soluble fibre content make it a particularly
good for heart health because potassium contributes to blood pressure lowering and soluble fibre
contributes to cholesterol lowering.
High blood pressure and cholesterol are two of the leading risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
It's important for younger people to be aware of their cardiovascular risk factors, and to do their best to modify them. In particular I think exercise is a critical part of risk reduction, and it's important to have at least half an hour of exercise three times a week. Diet is a big part as well. A low salt diet, low fat diet, high in fruits and vegetables, alcohol moderation is important as well.
And obviously reducing the major risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes control, pays very well long-term dividends. It's important for young people to be informed of their heart disease risk factors and to deal with them before they develop an event rather than after. And, certainly the relationship with their Cardiologist physician is crucial in terms of long term awareness and control of the risk factors.
