Interestingly 95% of the 500 cardiac bypass surgeries performed by us were under the AarogyaSri Scheme.” Said, Dr Sandeep Reddy, Consultant-  Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeon.

 

The key challenge that we have experienced is lack of awareness about the non-communicablediseases among the residents living in rural India, a coordinated and concerted effort by the government and the community is needed to educate them on how to improve their overall health and reduce risks of heart diseases.” Dr Sandeep Reddy added.

 

 

Deaths from heart-related disease among rural Indians have surpassed than that of those among urban Indians, according to a study in The Lancet.  Various factors can be attributed to the increasing number of heart related diseases in Anantapur, including poverty, ignorance, lack of access toquality care, drinking excessive amount of alcohol, smoking and severe financial stress.

 

 

Measures to prevent heart related problems:

 

Stop smoking:

 

Tobacco use is a major risk factor for heart disease. It damages the walls of the blood vessels. It can prevent blood and oxygen from reaching your heart and other organs. It also can cause blood clots, which may lead to heart attacks. Nicotine, the main chemical in tobacco, raises your blood pressure.

 

Control your blood pressure:

 

High blood pressure puts stress on your heart and blood vessels. Talk to your doctor about ways to manage your blood pressure. This includes exercising, keeping a diet that is low in salt, and losing weight if you are overweight.

 

Control your cholesterol levels:

 

There are two types of cholesterol. High-density lipoproteins (HDL) are “good” for you. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are “bad” for you. Too much “bad” cholesterol in your blood increases your risk of heart disease.

 

Check for diabetes:

 

Diabetes is a disease that has to do with your insulin hormone levels. Having diabetes increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.

 

Exercise regularly:

 

Regular cardio exercise can make your heart stronger. Examples include walking, jogging, running, bicycling, and swimming. Exercise helps your heart pump blood and deliver oxygen to your body. It also helps relieves stress. One must talk to their doctor before starting or restarting exercise after a heart attack. They can monitor your activity and keep you on track.

 

Eat a heart-healthy diet:

 

The food you eat affects your blood flow. Add foods to your diet that are low in cholesterol and saturated fats. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat less red meat, and more white meat and fish. Consume fewer high-fat dairy products. Cut down on salt and sugar. Avoid fried and processed foods.

 

Control your stress level:

 

Heart attacks can be scary and upsetting. Ask your doctor for advice about how to cope with your emotions. Depression and stress can increase your risk of heart disease.
