Fitness vs Fatness

Losing Weight After A Heart Attack – Fitness vs Fatness

A new study published in the European Heart Journal shows that people can be overweight or obese but healthy and fit. How is that possible? If you are overweight and have been struggling with weight loss, it is important to understand that it is more important to be healthy versus yo-yoing your weight around.

If you are overweight and “metabolically healthy” where you have a high fitness level and eat well, you are better off than someone who is of “normal weight” and who is “metabolically unhealthy”.

Obesity is a known risk factor to heart disease which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease. Now it is known that fitness will trump this effect. The metabolic complications of obesity can be protected with increase fitness level and proper nutrition.

People can be obese but metabolically healthy and fit, with no greater risk of developing or dying from cardiovascular disease or cancer than normal weight people, according to the largest study ever to have investigated this seeming paradox.

The research found that 46% of the obese participants were metabolically healthy and this decreased the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by between 30% and 50%. Not all obese people have the same prognosis. Fitness levels should be assessed and also metabolic markers to ensure obese people are “metabolically fit”.

So for those people who are “fit looking” with a healthy body weight does not make you immune to heart disease. And for those people who are overweight or obese losing weight should not be your primary focus. Start to get healthy. What does that mean? Yes the 3 usual suspects; exercise, nutrition and stress management.

I know our society is predominantly physically oriented forcing us to go on fad diets. But in order for you to prevent or reverse heart disease get your heart and you “metabolically fit” and you will feel great. The pounds will start to come off as you do the right things on a consistent basis.

Heart attack Diagnosis

In this article, you will find various techniques and tests carried out in the diagnosis of heart disease which are very important during heart treatment in an attempt to reverse heart disease.

It is important to learn about the different types of techniques used in  the diagnosis of heart disease because the tests play a major role in the determination of the exact condition of the heart. This can then be used to formulate ways of reducing the heart disease risk factors.

There are several risk factors of heart disease and if not prevented they can lead to severe heart conditions. Doctors use different methods to diagnosis heart disease so as to know the exact condition of your heart. The first that will be done is to take your medical history and then perform physical examination. This will then be followed by checking several risk factors high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol levels, etc. The doctor can then examine your heartbeat rate and the functioning of other body organs like the lungs, kidneys, heart itself, abdomen, legs, etc.

During the diagnosis process, the following tests are carried out:

Blood tests: the doctor will take samples of your blood to check whether the kidneys are functioning properly or have a problem.

Cholesterol test: the doctor will test for the level of cholesterols in the body. High levels of bad cholesterol are a risk factor hence the cholesterols need to be regulated.

Blood pressure: high blood pressure is among the most common risk factors of heart disease thus the doctor will check the level of blood pressure so as to regulate it in case it is too high.

Electrocardiogram (ECG): electrodes will be connected to your skin and electrical conductivity of your heart recorded and displayed on the monitor inform of waves. The test is used by doctors to diagnose a heart with rhythmic problems.

Echocardiogram: the test uses sound waves to give a video image of your heart. The test helps doctors to know the amount of blood pumped out of your heart for every heartbeat.

Chest X-ray: the chest X-ray images will help the doctor to see the actual condition of your heart and lungs. If you have a heart failure, your heart may appear enlarged and some fluid may appear to have built up in your lungs.

Stress test: stress is a major risk factor for heart disease thus it is necessary to be tested. This test is used to determine how your heart and blood vessels respond to exercise. This can be done when you are exercising with an attached ECG machine on your body or you may be given some drugs that will stimulate your heart to similar conditions as those of when exercising. The test enables the doctor to see the behavior of the heart when exercising.

CT (Computed Technology) heart scan: it is used to visualize the heart’s anatomy.

Heart MRI: It is used by doctors to see the performance of the heart from the outside.

Electrophysiology test: it is a test that measures the heart rhythm

Coronary angiography: this is the test that is used to evaluate the heart arteries’ functioning. It is also called arteriography.

All these tests are helpful in diagnosis of heart disease and they help in determining the treatment method to be used.


Can energy drinks cause heart problems

Are Energy Drinks bad for your heart?

In the recent years there has been an explosion of energy drinks to the market.  More people than ever before turning to these products as quick ‘pick me ups’, whether to stay awake due to poor sleeping habits or gain the edge in sport. What effects do these products have on our heart?

The lead researcher (nephrologist Dr Magdalena Szotowska, Poland)  of a small study has found that energy drinks can increase blood pressure and cause tachycardia (fast rhythms)  and arrhythmias (Premature Ventricular and Atrial Contractions) in healthy volunteers. She believes that sales of these products should be regulated. She also found the drinks increased anxiety and insomnia among the participants in her study.


Now for the flipside:  The latest research from the European Society of Cardiology by Dr. Matteo Cameli from the University of Siena, states that consuming energy drinks can exert acute positive benefits on heart performance.


Energy drinks contain both caffeine and taurine where concerns have been raised of adverse effects on the heart. Caffeine does increase blood pressure, studies have suggested that taurine may stimulate the release of calcium.


Dr. Cameli found an increase in HR by results show that energy drinks enhance contractions of both the left and right ventricles, thereby delivering a positive effect on heart function. This could be explained by the effect of taurine that, as previously demonstrated, stimulates the release of calcium from the muscle.


Both these recent studies have been performed on healthy subjects with no heart disease. It will also be important to determine which of the effects are induced in patients with heart disease to further the understanding of the potential benefits or risks of energy drink consumption.


As always please feel free to contact me for further clarification. Energy consumption drinks may have a benefit on cardiovascular system function due to the latest study but do note that it can contain an immense amount of sugar  and calories.

To your heart health success,
