In brief: Yes
However, if you control your weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes (if applicable), then you're managing your coronary artery disease and likely preventing a heart attack from occurring.
Basically, follow a healthy lifestyle, take all meds prescribed, and follow up with your doctor as recommended. Then you significantly reduce your chance of heart attack.
