What Increases a Person’s Risk for a Heart Attack?
Many people view serious health problems, such as heart attacks, as events that are just “in the cards” or unavoidable. There are instances in which a seemingly healthy person suddenly has an unexpected health crisis and there is little that could have been done to prevent it. People sometimes use these isolated events as an excuse to make poor health choices because they reason things are out of their control.
It is important to realize that even if there is an occasional story about an unexpected tragedy, it is entirely possible to take control of your health and reduce your risk for certain problems, especially heart attacks. Research indicates the risk for a heart attack is increased or decreased by a person’s lifestyle. What increases our risk for suffering a heart attack?
A person who is overweight, especially if he or she is severely overweight, has a much higher risk for suffering a heart attack. Obesity can also be an indication that a person lives a sedentary lifestyle or makes poor diet choices, both of which further increase risk.
Some medications feature warnings concerning heart attacks. The risk is usually low and varies from person to person based on other risk factors. These warnings apply to prescription and over-the-counter medications. If you are concerned about a medication triggering a heart attack or you know you have other risk factors already, speak with your doctor before taking a medication and discuss the various options for treating your particular medical problem.
Most people associate smoking with increased lung cancer risk, but it also increases the risk for a heart attack. This is especially true when you struggle with other health problems or take certain medications. Quitting is tough, but it can save your life. If you think you need additional support, speak to your doctor about smoking cessation options. He or she might have suggestions to make the process easier for you.
Anyone with diabetes has an increased risk for having a heart attack. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or your doctor has talked to you about pre-diabetes, it is also important to discuss your heart attack risk. Many of the tools used to manage diabetes can also reduce your risk for a heart attack.
Obviously, your heart health plays a major role in your heart attack risk. If you suffer from high blood pressure or you have been told you have high cholesterol, you also have an increased risk for having a heart attack. Cleaning up your diet, exercising, and reducing stress will improve heart health and reduce your risk.
