I am wondering if I should get checked or should worry about heart disease. It runs in my family. My grandma and uncle died of massive heart attacks at ages 58 and 37. Mom had issues, and my cousin just had a quad done at 42 years. I would rather be proactive if I can. What advise would you give?
There is a history of premature coronary artery disease in your family, as you told about a history of a heart attack in grandmother and uncle. But, you did not mention what exact issue your mother has. It is better to get evaluated for coronary artery disease with tests like ECG, echocardiography, and, if needed, TMT (treadmill test) after consulting your doctor. For more information, consult a cardiologist online.
