  • 1.  Diet foods for aneurysm and dissection?

    Posted 10-09-2021 19:10

    Two weeks ago CT scan found out I'm having these problems:
    Cardiologist report:
    Impression:
    1. Atypical chest and back pain
    2. "Coronary atherosclerosis" on CT scan chest 9/28/21
    3. Ascending Aorta Aneurysm (AAA) A. Ascending aorta 4.0cm on CT scan chest 9/30/21
    4. Small chronic distal abdominal aorta dissection on CT scan 9/30/21.
    5. Hyperlipidema.

    I'm worrying and don't know what foods to eat, what are activities like going to the gym….
    Please help me where to ask for help?

    Thank you 🙏

    I would stay away from anything that has a lot of salt. Your doctor should tell you if you can exercise. I'm sure you can take a walk. But not to far.

    Hello Long
    What a lot of information to process and these findings must seem scary. I'm uncertain whether you've seen doctor since getting test results. Has a plan of care been proposed about what happens next? The answers to your excellent questions should be part of this plan. Call the doctor, get an appointment if you don't already have one. And stay in touch.  We've all had scary diagnoses so we understand.
    Best wishes

    Long,

    Please ask your cardiologist these same questions, particularly about the gym and what exercises are permissible, as well as any other questions you may have.

    As to diet, I would image that you can't go wrong  with a vegetable and legume, some fish, healthy fatty acid based Mediterranean diet that typically is regarded as heart healthy, but you should confirm with your cardiologist as well.

    Good luck and good health,

    Ira

    Crucial question. I am not sure about your age, but I can suggest you to take a walk. As far as diet is concerned, I am fond of the all-natural, therapeutic, non-processed diet that I have been following for the last three years. after I have been diagnosed with my heart condition. Also, I have tried several home remedies to support my treatment and get the best out of it. I got some great Ayurvedic remedies and recipes from iahas.com that have helped me deal with my condition. I feel a lot healthier now
