Overview

As many as 1.5 million Americans each year suffer a heart attack and 500,000 of them die. More than 11 million Americans are affected by coronary heart disease, while an even greater number don't know that they have heart problems. Sixty million Americans have high blood pressure and 80 million report abnormal cholesterol levels - both important risk factors for heart attack.

While these statistics may be alarming, heart attacks can be prevented and treated. Living after a heart attack does not have to be an ordeal. You can win the battle with heart attack if you begin now to reduce the chances of further problems.

Winning with Heart Attack is a comprehensive guide written by leading specialists to offer new hope to those who have suffered a heart attack or who feel they are at risk. This important new book offers case examples of people from all walks of life who are leading active and normal lives - even after suffering a heart attack. Written in a format that's easy to read and understand, it explains the importance of:

- exercise and a healthy, low-fat diet

- taking aspirin and vitamin E

- treating hypertension and high cholesterol while cutting out smoking

- understanding the special risks all women face for heart attack, especially after menopause

- knowing whether you have "high risk" personality traits for heart attack

- electing surgery as an option for treatment

- managing stress

- acting promptly in the event you or someone close to you shows signs of suffering a heart attack

If you are concerned about your heart, Winning with Heart Attack will change your life. As you move from patient to person, it will teach you how you can begin today with a realistic program to prevent further coronary problems, and will enable those who have suffered a heart attack to become once again healthy participants in a full range of activities.
