thanks for choosing health care magic.See heart attack occurs when one or more of blood vessels supplying blood to heart gets partial or completely blocked.Angiography will tell more about it.To avoid this happening again you need aggressive medical management as advised by your doctor.Make sure he also goes for regular check up and do regular exercise and take health diet.Lots people leave happily after heart attack with due care so do not worry.

hi gretings from health care magic
as you have mentioned your father is a business man so he must be in always stressful condition. so extra stress can lead to hypertension . with that if he is not maintaining the diet habit properly then it will cause rise of ldl and total cholesterol with triglyceride. if he is diabetic then it is more riskful. So now the folowing things he should take care
1) avoid to extra stress
2) diet should be low salt and no fatty diet. advisable to take lots of fruits and vegetables. no junk food or fast food
3) daily morning walk
4) take lots of natural antioxidant
5) if diabetic maintain the blood sugar within normal range with diet and managment
6) live a life with relax
