Can heart disease be cured?
A: Although we can’t cure heart disease, we can make it better. Most forms of heart disease are very treatable today. There is some evidence that normalizing high blood pressure and lowering cholesterol to very low levels will partially reverse plaques in the coronary arteries. We can repair or replace diseased valves.
What is the most dangerous heart condition?
Ischemic heart disease, or coronary artery disease. The deadliest disease in the world is coronary artery disease (CAD). Also called ischemic heart disease, CAD occurs when the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart become narrowed. Untreated CAD can lead to chest pain, heart failure, and arrhythmias.
What is mild heart disease?
Many Adults Have Mild Heart Failure. Heart failure develops over several years, as the heart gradually loses its ability to pump blood efficiently through the body. Usually, the loss in pumping action is a symptom of an underlying problem like hardening of the arteries, high blood pressure, or damaged heart muscle.
