The drugs Simvastatin and Lovastatin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include Limb and Bone, and related phenotypes are Increased free cholesterol and Increased LDL uptake

Major Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a condition characterized by the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. Some of the major symptoms include chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, nausea or vomiting, lightheadedness, dizziness, pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Coronary Artery Disease

People suffering from coronary artery disease are suitable to follow the following lifestyle:

1. Healthy diet: The diet should mainly reduce saturated fat and increase unsaturated fat. It is recommended to increase the intake of foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, poultry and legumes.

2. Be active: Aerobic exercise can improve cardiopulmonary function, alleviate the condition, and reduce the risk of complications. It is recommended to perform 150 minutes of moderate to high-intensity aerobic exercise per week, such as brisk walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming.

3. Don’t smoke: Smoking increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, so it is recommended to quit smoking.

4. Control the amount of alcohol you drink: Drinking alcohol will increase the incidence of cardiovascular disease, so it is recommended to limit the amount of alcohol you drink.

5. Control weight: Obesity is a risk factor for coronary heart disease, so it is recommended to control weight through healthy diet and exercise.

6. Regular physical examinations: Regular physical examinations can help detect and treat any complications early. It is recommended to check cholesterol levels, blood pressure, heart rate and other indicators at least once a year.

7. Control blood pressure and cholesterol: High blood pressure and high cholesterol are major risk factors for coronary heart disease, so it is recommended to control blood pressure and cholesterol levels through medication and dietary control. People suffering from coronary artery disease should follow the above-mentioned lifestyle and undergo treatment and management under the guidance of a doctor.
