HEART DISEASE

TREATMENT
How you treat heart disease
will depend on the type and stage
of the condition. An immediate
response is CPR, in which the
person affected has their heartbeat
resuscitated with rescue breathing
and chest compressions (training
courses are available for those with
family members at risk).
There are various medications
to control high blood pressure,
blood clots and blocked vessels on
a long-term basis, and electrical
pacemakers can be used to
regulate the rhythm of the heart.
Surgical procedures, such as a
heart bypass, may be needed or, in
extremely life-threatening cases, a
complete heart transplant with a
donor organ.

TREATMENT
There have been incredible advances
in the research and treatment of cancer
over recent years, and today many cases
are cured or controlled for some years.
Each type has a specialist treatment,
from drug programmes, chemotherapy,
and radiotherapy, biopsy tissue samples
and surgery for the affected areas, and
complementary therapies to treat the
symptoms. As well as medical services
through the NHS, there are a range of charities providing vital
support to those living with cancer and supporting friends
and families with the illness.
PREVENTION
Experts estimate more than four in
10 cancer cases could be prevented
by lifestyle changes, echoing
many of the guidelines
previously mentioned.
A balanced diet with
plenty of fibre, fruit and
vegetables will lower the

risk, along
with cutting back
on alcohol and
keeping a healthy
weight. Take regular
exercise, steer clear of
cigarettes and every day
make sure you use sunscreen,
which can protect against skin
cancer. A simple piece of
advice from all cancer
organisations is 'know your
body' - anyone noticing a
change that isn't normal for
them should consult their
doctor as soon as they can.

PREVENTION
The good news is that most
common forms of heart disease
are largely preventable with a few
sensible lifestyle changes - eat a
healthy, balanced diet which is low
in sugar, salt, fat and cholesterol.
The British Heart Foundation has
a free 'eating well' booklet with
information on healthy eating
plans (www.bhf.org.uk). Keeping
active and aiming for 30 minutes
of exercise each day will control
weight, reduce blood pressure and
cut the risk of heart disease.
Alcohol intake should be limited,
with several alcohol-free days
each week and no binge drinking,
and smokers who quit the habit
will benefit from a boost in heart
health soon after they stop.

GLORIA
SAYS
'I've always
tried to be
proactive
about my
health
as I was
classified as
prediabetic.
Being happy
counts for a
lot, too. You
want to be
healthy for
your children
and grandchildren.'

CANCER
Likely to be top of most
people's health worry list,
cancer has more than 200
types and while anyone of
any age can develop it, most cases are in
people aged 50 or over.
The most common cancers affecting
women in their 60s are breast, colon and
lung cancer, with prostate, colon and lung
cancer most prevalent in men. Cancer
starts when abnormal cells divide in an
uncontrolled way, often causing tumours
that then affect the body's systems.

The leading cause of death for both women and men, heart disease
comes in several different forms, but the danger with all types is
the effect on the vital pumping of blood around the body. Heart
attacks, strokes, angina, coronary artery disease - these are all terms
for different types of heart disease, and those who have had consistently unhealthy
lifestyles may well develop heart problems from their 60s onwards.
