As we grow older, it is important to listen to our bodies for warning signs of cardiovascular issues, especially heart attack. The symptoms of ischemic heart disease could include angina (shooting chest pain), intense fatigue, and shortness of breath, amongst others. If you’re between age 55 – 65 years, or dealing with medical conditions such as chronic kidney disease, cholesterol abnormalities, diabetes mellitus, or hypertension, early treatment with medications and lifestyle changes can greatly improve outcomes. If you suspect symptoms of a heart attack, do not take it for granted. Visit any of our branches immediately for emergency treatment and care. We will look after you.
