NHS Heart disease information

The NHS Heart disease support pages offer advice, support and also related facts.

Also known as Coronary or Ischaemic Heart Disease generally affects more men than it does women and is now responsible for up to 73,000 deaths in the United Kingdom per year. Symptoms of Heart Disease include Angina (chest pain), heart attack and heart failure. In the majority of cases, heart disease is largely preventable by making responsible and healthy lifestyle choices. Being smoke free, eating a healthy balanced diet, taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight are all important.
