Please suggest me about heart disease

Hi all A quick question I know heart disease is strong in my family anyway and both my parents have heart issues but I was wondering are there any possibilities that these issues can be skipped in certain generations or is it inevetible that I will get it when im older - I think I will be in line to get it but maybe im wrong. Thanks

It may be partly genetic, but partly family dietary habits. I shared my propensities for snacks of cheese and crackers, like my Dad, more than my siblings. And ice cream, and peanut butter. No one else among my siblings has severe heart disease except me. Improve your diet, don't smoke, try to be mellow and non-stressed, get an hour of exercise almost every day. Eats a lot more fruits and veggies. low amount of meats, no visible animal fat or skin.

a 5 6,210 lb,64- years old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. his blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. further examination showed normal to low plasma rennin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance, cardiac output of 7.2 L/ minute, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages and mild polyuria.recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low- salt diet( 2g/day sodium), prudent exercise, and reduction in alcohol consumption( 3oz of whiskey/day). This change of lifestyle did little change in his condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. what is the diagnosis for this individual? what should this individual s ideal body weight be?(assume he is of medium body frame)expalin the sites of action for 3 pharmacologic agents prescribed for this individual: oral diuretic, beta-blocker, and vasodilator.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
