Preventing angina pain

Angina (also called angina pectoris) is chest discomfort, caused by reduced oxygen supply to the heart muscle, in relation to its needs.

A regular exercise programme under the doctor's supervision can prevent angina.

A supervised weight-loss programme in over-weight persons also reduces the chances of angina.

Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet and avoid foods high in fat and cholesterol.

The blood pressure should be checked regularly and kept as close as possible to 120/80mmHg.

Get relaxed sleep at night.

Always carry the medicines prescribed by the doctor along with the prescription.

Follow-up regularly with the doctor.

Avoid stress.
