Can angina be prevented?
Walking and moderate-level exercise can improve the body's ability to utilise oxygen and the heart's ability to pump blood effectively and can therefore prevent the occurrence or progression of heart disease and even reverse it to some extent. However, individuals with existing heart conditions should start new physical activity only after consulting with a doctor.

To a certain extent. A healthy lifestyle including daily walks is a long-term practice that can reduce the risk of angina and heart disease. Regular exercise makes the heart beat faster and makes you breathe more quickly. It improves the body’s ability to take in and use oxygen, which reduces the risk of angina and progression of heart disease.

People with heart conditions can incorporate exercises such as walking, cycling or even a living room workout at a level that suits them. However, in people with heart diseases, excessive walking might induce angina. So, they should plan their exercises after consulting their doctor. This means that people with angina can live a normal and happy life if they get the right treatment. This can also help reduce the chance of getting angina again along with heart problems.
