Singaporeans increasingly suffer from “first world problems” caused by lifestyle
choices such as a poor diet, lack of
exercise, work and family stress, social & financial pressures, and other unhealthy habits,
our heart is one of the first organs to be impacted. High blood pressure &
cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, being overweight can all lead to heart disease.
Or you could simply have a family history of heart problems which puts you at
higher risk of a stroke or heart attack
you having chest pains? Heart palpitations? Breathlessness after a seemingly
mild exertion? This and many others may be symptoms of coronary heart disease.
Known as the leading cause of heart attacks, coronary artery disease is a
condition in which the artery walls to the heart get clogged up with
cholesterol deposits called plaque.
