People with angina can have regular life expectancy and lead a normal life if they receive proper treatment and make healthy lifestyle changes.

People with angina can have regular life expectancy and lead a normal life if they receive proper treatment and make healthy lifestyle changes. However, there was a study that was done on selected participants. It concluded that “Median expectation of life at age 70 years was reduced by about 2, 5 and 6 years for those with angina, myocardial infarction, or both”.

The available evidence suggests that angina is more common among older people and becomes frequent with advancing age. So, it is crucial that angina is detected early, and the underlying condition treated as it can be a sign of an impending heart attack.
