Lot of patients come to our OPD and ask us as to why they developed Coronary Artery Disease. Once I say that this is because of long standing diabetes and blood pressure, their immediate reply would be why they developed heart disease even though their sugar and pressure has been well under control for the past 10 years. So, that obviously means that taking medicines alone for the adequate control of sugar and pressure is not enough and you have to go beyond. This is called “Lifestyle Modification”.

Dr. K.P.Suresh Kumar, Chief Cardiologist at Kauvery Hospital, talks about the importance of medicines, diet and physical activity to control Coronary Heart Disease.

    Lifestyle modifications is a term that is thrown left and right but in reality very hard to implement and more so to maintain. But given the advantages there is no other choice but to do it right!
