Mr. Parekh,

Being overweight, hypertensive, diabetic, smoker, regular use of alcohol - all these factors increase your risk of having a heart attack. Since you have already had one, you are a very high risk of getting another one. Eating an egg a day is not a good option as eggs contain a very high amount of cholesterol, which is not good for you. To improve your health, the best options for you would be to give up alcohol and smoking, lose weight, eat sensibly and go for regular mild exercise.

Best wishes.
