It pays to learn how to take care of your heart.

Some of you guys may not know but I am a little worried about my health. Doctors usually tell you that heredity plays a very important factor to what conditions you may encounter later on in life. I am not as lucky as you guys because my family has history of High Blood, Heart Conditions, and Diabetes. To make matters worse, I have them in both sides of my family.


It pays to educate yourself about what is happening when you are the one affected. We need to basically know how everything works and how to take care of ourselves. Living a healthy lifestyle, a good diet and grueling sessions in the gym would be a nice regimen to eliminate the possibilities of sudden cardiac arrest. That's one thing that I fear because it happened to most of my relatives without warning.

I got my Dad checked up yesterday and of course he still is under medication for his heart and diabetes. It’s like a lifetime of medication because this will somewhat become maintenance for him. My Mom on the other hand is trying to get rid of her diabetes. She is also under medication and trying other herbal supplements to battle this sickness we got from our bloodline. I just wish someday if I get what they have, I'd par better in treating the condition. With the information I also read off the Internet that there are several things that you can do to eliminate recurrence and prevent this condition. One particular procedure includes an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. New technological advancements for the treatment of the heart condition may soon progress and become the ultimate cure. St. Jude Medical Doctors explain in lay man's terms how it works and how to take care of it. I highly recommend you visit www.insidecardiacarrest.com to find out more if you are at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Knowledge is power.
