    Coronary Artery Disease - Living With Heart Disease

    A diagnosis of coronary artery disease can be hard to accept and understand. If you don't have symptoms, it may be especially hard to recognize that heart disease is serious and can lead to other health problems.

    It's important to talk with your doctor to learn about the disease and what you can do to help manage it and keep it from getting worse.

    Lifestyle changes

    Your doctor may suggest that you attend a cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) program. In cardiac rehab, you will get education and support that help you build new, healthy habits, such as eating right and getting more exercise.

    Medicines

    Medicines are an important part of your treatment.
