My partner recently had a heart attack. He is fine now but he hasn’t been told the do’s and don’ts of eating and drinking. I have just been through the MoM Blog and noticed there was nothing on this subject. So if anyone has been in the same situation I would appreciate any advice Thankyou.

  • He needs to get into a dietician about what he can eat and what he needs to avoid asap

  • Follow the do’s and don’ts and everything should be good. The less stress the better.

  • I can’t believe he’s had a heart attack and hasn’t received any advice. From the hospital, his GP, even been recommended to someone to advise him. That’s do not good :/

  • Your husband’s GP/specialist should be able to provide you with a wealth of information.

  • ask your Gp about this as everything should be in moderation and some things are a no no. I am surprised no one while I take it he was in hospital did not come and see him and talk to him about this. Also get your GP to keep an eye on his blood pressure as well and different food can put this up and other types can bring it down

  • Touch wood we haven’t been in this circumstance. I do know there are support groups around – even support facebook pages! If you are really stuck for help, have a chat to your GP as they can often refer you for assistance.

  • The Better Health Chanel is an amazing website and your local pharmacy would be able to provide some useful advice as well as your GP and a referral to a dietician

  • When you have appointment with doctor you can ask them what kind of foods good for your husband. My father in laws got heart attact two years a go.

  • Make an appointment with a nutritionist at the hospital (or see one privately). Have a look at the Heart Foundation’s website – lots of information there, including recipes.

  • I never been in this situation with any of my family members but I’m sure if you go to your gp they will be more than happy to give you as much information as you need or there are loads of pages of information on the internet.
    Good luck glad to hear your hubby is doing well.

  • There is a lot of donts to start with, my dad had his first heart attack when I was 7,y need to overhaul your diet, everyone in the house needs to eat healthy.. Start slow exercise check with the doctor first, your husband should be under a physio or a program to help him get back on track. Also anything that stresses him, you need to keep him away from it.
