Preventing angina pain

Avoid stress.

Follow-up regularly with the doctor.

Take sublingual nitroglycerin/isosorbide (or the emergency treatment for angina as advised by the doctor) if stopping an activity doesn't help the pain, or if the pain occurs at rest.

Always carry the medicines prescribed by the doctor along with the prescription.

Get relaxed sleep at night.

The blood pressure should be checked regularly and kept as close as possible to 120/80mmHg.

Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet and avoid foods high in fat and cholesterol.

A supervised weight-loss programme in over-weight persons also reduces the chances of angina.

A regular exercise programme under the doctor's supervision can prevent angina.

Angina (also called angina pectoris) is chest discomfort, caused by reduced oxygen supply to the heart muscle, in relation to its needs.
