Coronary artery disease is the most common form of heart disease and is the leading cause of death in the US. Plaque builds up in the coronary arteries, narrowing them and preventing the flow of blood to the heart. Also since the blood platelets clump together, the possibility of blood clots forming also increases.
When oxygen rich blood is unable to reach the heart muscles, they get weakened causing heart failure in which event, the heart cannot pump enough blood into the body. Lack of blood can also cause arrythmia or a condition where the heart beats become irregular.
Blockage of the coronary arteries often leads to angina or heart attack. Symptoms of a heart attack include chest pains or even pains in the jaws, shoulders, arms and back.
Changing your lifestyle which includes exercising, giving up smoking, eating heart healthy foods can prevent and reverse coronary artery disease.
