While cancer and AIDS always seem to get the most publicity, the number one killer worldwide is a myocardial infarction preceded by coronary artery disease. While we are not suggesting that cancer and AIDS should be ignored by any means, we simply feel that people should be fully informed about every major life threatening disorder and how they can potentially avoid them. If you have already been diagnosed with coronary artery disease, it’s not too late to do something about it. With Canadian Disability Benefits and up to $35,000 from the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program you can get the treatment you need.
What is Coronary Artery Disease?
Put simply, coronary artery disease is the buildup of plaque in the arteries which supply blood to the muscles of the heart. As this plaque continues accumulate like sludge in a pipe, the blood flow is steadily decreased to the point where eventually the flow stops completely, resulting in a heart attack and in many cases, death. While anyone can develop coronary artery disease to one extent or another throughout their lifetime a family history of CAD, smoking, hypertension and diabetes all significantly increase a person’s risk.
Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary artery disease has called ‘the silent killer’ as a large percentage of patients experience few if any symptoms indicating a problem until a piece of plaque breaks loose and causes a heart attack. This is why doctors so often insist on performing ECGs and other tests if you meet certain criteria which put you at an increased risk for coronary artery disease. Through these tests it is possible to detect and then take steps to halt or even reverse the effects of CAD before any real damage is done.
In the rare situations in which noticeable symptoms do occur prior to a heart attack, the most common is angina which is of course a serious health concern in its own right. If you have been diagnosed with CAD or angina, it’s time to start turning your life around before it’s too late.
