Dr. Beedkar further added, 50 per cent of all heart attacks in Indian men occur under or at 50 years of age. Most of the deaths are from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a condition where the heart stops working without any warning. A sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops beating or is not beating sufficiently to maintain perfusion and life. Generally cardiac problems in Indian adults begin to develop in the early to mid-40s and hence they are at a greater risk of experiencing angina or cardiac arrest. Indians are also genetically predisposed to hoard the bad cholesterol (LDL and triglycerides) in their body. The cause for this bad cholesterol hoarding is majorly attributed to certain enzymatic deficiency and not dietary habits. LDL and triglycerides are bad for the heart as they increase the risk of CADs
He also highlited the risk factors for Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD), i.e. diabetes as a risk accelerator, lifestyle factors a few of them.
Dr. Amey Beedkar recommended ,for routine check-ups for cardiac risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol and discipline oneself to follow a pattern of moderate intensity exercise consistently.
