Hereditary Heart Decease

An_251951 posted:
What can I do to avoid a heart attack when my heredity shows clearly I will have one? My father had congestive heart failure and died of a stroke at 87. Now my eldest brother has had a heart attack at age 64. He survived and received a stint, but was lucky he got to the hospital quickly. I am now 58.
