Well i've had massive heart-attack in 2012 , had an icd put in and now they say that 75% of my heart isn't blood or oxygen am i at high risk for avr?
Meds/close f/u: An ischemic cardiomyopathy (cm) such as you have requires close followup with your cardiologist and regular assessment for arrhythmia and heart failure. The icd helps guard against sudden death as a result of dangerous ventricular arrhythmias (one of the major risks with cm). The other risk is of worsening heart failure.

Is it unlikely for a 26 year old man to be at high risk of heart attack? Such as high LDL, triyglicerides, etc. And how is this tested for?

I would recommend getting a blood test for your cholesterol profile as well as a blood sugar test to be sure that you did not have diabetes. This would be especially important if you have any symptoms. These would be important also for prevention. All the best to you. ...Read more

Can right sided almost midline pain (feels like a pulled muscle) be a warning sign for a heart attack in a person at high risk?
Possibly.: If one has such pain and there is a possibility it's cardiac pain...especially in a person with risk factors...the approach would be to take a full-size Aspirin (325 mg), chew and swallow it, call 911 and get to the hospital emergency dept. as quickly as possible. The aspirin, when chewed and swallowed, enters the blood stream, stopping platelets from forming a clot in coronary arteries. ...Read more

I am 72 years old and had a heart attack in the recovery room six years ago after surgery. Am I now considered high risk for any further surgery?
My grandfather had a heart attack & Indians are at high risk. I'm 22 -- is there an evidence based protocol to avoiding heart disease? Diet/exercise?
It is good to keep: family history in mind but most people have relatives who have had cardiac problems. Lifestyle is a major factor. After your doc has ruled out any medical conditions you can see a nutritionist for a health diet to fit your body. You might also get a micronutrient test from Spectracell lab in TX. Peace and good health. ...Read more
