CORONARY HEART DISEASE: CONTROLLING RISK FACTORS
Physical activity
As already explained, being physically active will help protect you against the progress of coronary heart disease in a number of ways. It can help lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, reduce your weight and your blood pressure and increase your HDL cholesterol level. Physical activity is also good for your general health. It is worthwhile, therefore, to find types of physical activity that you can continue to enjoy for the rest of your life. Being physically active should prolong your life and improve the quality of your life. Physical activity may be simple things like walking or doing normal household work or gardening.
Blood pressure
Patients who have coronary heart disease commonly have high blood pressure. Up to half the patients who have coronary artery bypass surgery have had some elevation of blood pressure before their operation and many of them are on treatment for it.
It is thought that the high pressure leads to greater wear and tear in the arteries, and accelerates the progress of the coronary artery disease. When you are in hospital, your blood pressure falls, and when you leave hospital it is usually lower than on admission. However, this does not last. As you recover from the operation, your blood pressure rises to its previous level.
The medical treatment you were taking before the operation is likely to have been stopped while you were in hospital. Therefore, your blood pressure needs to be checked for some time to note when it starts to rise.
The medication usually needs to be resumed after some weeks. Salt restriction which occurred in hospital will probably need to be continued as well, even though your blood pressure may be normal for a time.
