Most people overlook heart attack warning signs and are too late when they decide to seek medical attention. Know your body and be prompt in responding to symptoms such as chest discomfort, shortness of breath, upper body pain, cold sweats, nausea, and light-headedness. Get yourself to a medical facility within half an hour of experiencing these symptoms.
If you have been feeling dizzy, anxious, or breathless lately, get your cardiac functions tested. Non-invasive tests detect arterial blockages, narrowing of blood vessels, and structural changes in the heart. Some dependable tests include C-Reactive Protein Test, Advanced Lipid Profile and Lipoprotein(a) Test, A1C Blood Glucose Test, ECG/EKG and Exercise EKG.
Spontaneous preterm labor could indicate a weak heart and doubled risk of heart attack. If you are a mother of four or more children, changes in abdominal fat distribution can elevate risks. Fertility issues, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and sudden hot flashes have been linked with heart disease. If have taken proton pump indicators or have had the Coxsackie B virus in your childhood, you could be at risk.
