Rule Out Risk Of Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)

What is Myocardial Infarction?

Myocardial infarction is the medical name for a heart attack. It is a life-threatening condition that occurs when oxygen rich blood flow to the heart muscle abruptly stops. This is mostly due to blockage in one or more coronary arteries. This blockage is due to plaque, a substance mostly made of cholesterol, calcium and other cellular waste. A heart attack in some cases may be fatal and result in death.

Symptoms of Myocardial Infarction

Tightness or squeezing sensation in the chest

Pain or aching sensation that comes and goes in the chest, back, jaw, and other areas of the upper body

Rapid heart rate


Shortness of breath



Nausea and Vomiting

Chest pain is the most common symptom.

What increases the risk of Myocardial Infarction

High blood pressure

High cholesterol levels

High triglyceride levels

High blood sugar levels


Lack of physical activity




Family history

Test to rule out the risk of Myocardial Infarction

There is a simple exercise test you can do to see if you’re at risk for a heart attack.

First check your resting pulse rate on your wrist or neck (A).

Then do high intensity exercise for one minute and again check your pulse rate(B).

It will be increased.

Then relax for one minute and again check your pulse rate(C).

This is your recovery pulse rate. To calculate how fast your pulse rate comes down

B – C = D

This is the measure of how fast that pulse rate comes down after exercise. If it comes down less than 12 beats you are at risk for a heart attack or myocardial infarction. If your numbers are between 13 to 20 then you are at moderate risk. If the numbers are between 21 to 40 then you have minimum risk. If your recovery numbers between 50 to 60 then you are in top shape like athletes. This is one of the best indicators of for health and cardiovascular function.

The sympathetic nervous system raises your pulse rate when you exercise. As soon as you stop the parasympathetic nervous system kicks in to bring down your pulse rate by relaxation. This system also helps in repairs that the body does when we sleep.

Resting is a part of workouts that we ignore. Short workouts should be done with resting. That will make the system stronger.

High Insulin Levels Can Lead to Complication

high insulin levels

The human brain is programmed to keep the blood sugar levels in check. To achieve this, it will stimulate the pancreas to produce more Insulin. This also means high Insulin levels in the blood which will lead to various complications in the body. Some of these are,

All kinds of cancer

High Insulin levels in the blood promotes the production of IGF (Insulin like growth factor). This is a special chemical responsible for muscle and tissue growth. But unusually high amount of IGF causes abnormal growth of certain cells of the body. This is the first step towards development of tumors. For cancerous growth the cells need energy and that is provided by the excess sugar already circulating in the body. According to research published in the Lancet Oncology 2010, the women with high concentration of IGF in the blood had higher chances of cancer.

All kinds of inflammatory diseases

High Insulin levels in the blood cause various kinds of inflammation all over the body including vital organs. Which organ will succumb to the inflammation depends on various factors.

Hormonal diseases

Increased or decreases production of Insulin directly affects the production of other hormones. The connection of abnormal production of Insulin can be seen in the following disorders:

Polycystic ovary syndrome

Erectile dysfunction

Weight gain

High blood pressure


Obesity and mental disorders

Too much Insulin promotes fat storage and stops your body from breaking down fats. Indians are more prone to fat accumulation near the belly whereas Europeans are more likely to accumulate fat around the thighs and buttocks. Fat around the belly is called visceral fat and tends to clog the arteries resulting in heart diseases and mental disorders like Alzheimer’s and Dementia. This is also referred to as Diabetes type 3. That is the reason why it is seen that once the patient is cured of Diabetes automatically he shows improvement in the symptoms of mental disorders.

Multi organ failure

High Insulin levels leads to fat storage and inflammation which in-turn results in increase in the level of cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides, thereby causing micro-blockages all over the inner lining of the arteries resulting in the risk of heart disease and even heart attacks. It also causes your kidney to retain more water and salt, which increases your blood pressure and kidney dysfunction.

Pancreatic cancer

In order to achieve the targeted homeostasis of blood glucose, the pancreas gets overburdened and exhausted resulting in Beta cells themselves becoming incapable of producing Insulin. This results in substantial damage to the pancreas, resulting in complications such as pancreatic cancer.


Here one must understand that despite of consuming high amount of refined carbohydrate the blood sugar level may be within the normal range. This does not necessary mean that a person is free from complications. The body is producing high Insulin levels to maintain the blood sugar level which will cause problems in the future.

By changing the diet to plant based foods these complications can be reversed.
