Coronary Artery Disease is also known as CAD, and develops when your coronary arteries are damaged or diseased by plaque deposits. Some symptoms of CAD include chest pain, shortness of breath or having a heart attack. You can prevent coronary artery disease by following a healthy lifestyle that includes a low-fat, low-salt diet, being physically active, quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, and managing stress. CAD can be treated with lifestyle changes, medications to reduce cholesterol and prevent blood clots, and surgical procedures to improve blood flow.
