Treatments for Heart Disease

Heart disease treatment varies from person to person. However, everyone diagnosed with this condition will need to undergo lifestyle changes. Depending on the severity, these may be the only changes a person needs to make. They include things like:
 
  • Eating a heart-healthy diet to prevent or lower high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol
  • Quitting smoking, if you smoke
  • Exercising as directed by your doctor
  • Losing weight, if you are overweight or obese
  • Reducing stress.
 
For more serious conditions, treatment for heart disease may include medications (such as aspirin or beta blockers) or certain procedures (such as angioplasty or open heart surgery).
