We have some common misconceptions about a heart attack. This post is to remove this misconception today. If you have a heart attack, then you have severe pain in the chest. This pain lasts 25-30 minutes. In most cases, the patient dies before reaching the hospital. This is a medical emergency.
We think people get old when they are old, obese or have tension. But this is wrong. Heart attack can happen at any time. We also have some misconceptions about heart attack. As-
- Although previously thought the risk of stroke was higher in the elderly, it is now proven wrong. About five million people are now suffering from stroke in Bangladesh.
- If there is a history of heart attack in the family, it is completely wrong to assume that the tendency of heart attack will increase. Lack of adequate nutrition, irregular lifestyle, drinking, smoking can lead to a heart attack.
- There is no reason to think that eliminating fat from the diet will reduce the risk of a heart attack. Hydrogen oil contained in trans fat is unhealthy for the heart. Cheese, eggs, avocado, salmon fish are healthy for fat heart.
- Chest pain means that many people think of a heart attack. In addition to chest pain, heart attack can occur silently. In addition to chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, and even swallowing can be a sign of a heart attack.
- Do not take diabetes lightly. Risk diabetes is just like a heart attack. Many people think that controlling diabetes by taking drugs can reduce the risk of heart attack. There is no basis for thinking like this. Cholesterol levels, obesity increases the risk of heart attack for many.
- There is a perception that men have a higher risk of heart attack than women. Although there is a tendency for men to become more aggressive at a young age, there are many factors such as stress, obesity that increase the risk of heart attack among women.
