Coronary Heart Disease: Lifestyle Changes

March 6, 2022


Well, it’s really important to maintain a good regimen, which includes visiting with your doctor on a regular basis. If you have high blood pressure, maintain blood pressure close to 120 over 80, or at least under 130 over 85. If you have high cholesterol, your LDL, the bad cholesterol, should be at 70 or less. If you are high risk, meaning you’ve had multiple events in the past year and you’re diabetic, your LDL goals will be 55. If you’re a smoker, it’s essential that you quit smoking because smoking leads to progression of atherosclerosis and the nicotine constricts the blood vessels, raising the blood pressure and increases the risk of developing heart disease and stroke. As I mentioned previously, modifying stress, dealing with stress in a healthy way, is also very important.
