8 Activity and Exercise for Heart Health Ellen S Aberegg, MA, LD, RD

9 Exercise and Heart Health We all know we should exercise First we need to know why. Then, how do we start?

10 What regular exercise “buys” us Lower blood pressure. Lower blood sugar levels. Calories burned, which helps reduce weight. Improved blood fat profile. Improved circulation in leg arteries Increased energy. It gets easier when you exercise regularly! Lower stress levels. Lower the risk of having another cardiovascular event if have already had one.

11 Starting an Exercise Program Guidelines for healthy adults under age 65 with no apparent chronic disease or condition If you could answer – yes to any of these questions on the next slide or – are older than 65 or – if have a chronic disease or condition, check in with your physician FIRST

12 Answer these questions:  Yes  No Has your health care provider ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a health care provider?  Yes  No Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?  Yes  No In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?  Yes  No Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?  Yes  No Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?  Yes  No Is your health care provider currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?  Yes  No Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?

13 Starting an Exercise Program STEP 1 - Set aside time each day to exercise. STEP 2 - Choose cardiovascular activities you enjoy STEP 3 - Start with 10 to 15 min of cardiovascular exercise daily. Each week, add five minutes STEP 4 - Incorporate strength training

27 … NOT an inevitable part of life We have effective means to reduce heart disease 90% of heart disease is preventable We don ’ t use them enough or effectively – especially in women and minorities Heart Disease is Preventable!

28 What Increases Risk for Heart Disease Grundy SM, et al, Circulation, 1998; Grundy SM, Circulation, 1999; Braunwald E, N Engl J Med, 1997; Grundy SM, et al, J Am Coll Cardiol, 1999 Non-Modifiable Risk Factors (Things You Can’t Change): Age Gender Family History Race Modifiable Risk Factors (Things You Can Change!): Abnormal cholesterol levels Obesity Cigarette smoking Hypertension Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome Physical Inactivity Alcohol

30 Start By Knowing Your Numbers BMI<25 kg/m2 Waist circumference<35 inches BP<120/80 Total cholesterol<200 Triglycerides<150 LDL<100 HDL>50 women/>40 men Fasting Glucose<100

31 Hypertension BP > 180/110 mm Hg evaluate and treat immediately or within one week depending on the clinical situation BP > 160/100 mm Hg evaluate and treat or refer within one month BP ≥ 140/90 mm Hg recheck within 2 months, if confirmed, evaluate and treat or refer BP ≥ 120/80 mm Hg counsel regarding lifestyle factors, recheck within one year and monitor Initial evaluation of the hypertensive patient should include 12-lead EKG, urinalysis, hematocrit, serum glucose, creatinine, calcium, and potassium measurement and a lipid profile Source: Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure 2004.

32 Hypertension Treatment: Encourage an optimal blood pressure of < 120/80 mm Hg through lifestyle approaches Pharmacologic therapy is necessary when blood pressure is ≥ 140/90 mm Hg or an even lower blood pressure in the setting of diabetes (≥ 130/80 mm Hg) Thiazide diuretics should be part of the drug regimen for most patients unless contraindicated, or unless compelling indications exist for other agents

33 Lifestyle Approaches to Reduce Hypertension Maintain ideal body weight -Weight loss of as little as 10 lbs. reduces blood pressure DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) eating plan (low sodium) -Even without weight loss, a low fat diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and low fat dairy products can reduce blood pressure Sodium restriction to 1500 mg per day Increase physical activity Limit Alcohol: <1 drink/day for women, <2 drinks/day for men -Alcohol raises blood pressure -One drink = 12 oz. beer, 5 oz. wine, or 1.5 oz. liquor Source: Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure 2004, Sacks 2001, Mosca 2011

34 Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Plan 7–8 servings of grains, grain products daily 4–5 servings of vegetables daily 4–5 servings of fruits daily 2–3 servings of low-fat or nonfat dairy foods daily ≤ 2 servings of meats, poultry, fish daily 4–5 servings of nuts, seeds, legumes weekly Limited intake of fats, sweets Source: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute 1998, Sacks 2001.

35 DASH Study 48% women ( BP 133/85) 60% African Americans > 60% obese BP Results:  6.4/2.9 mmHg overall Greater drop in African Americans and higher baseline BP Svetkey, Archives Int Med, 1999

36 DASH + Sodium + Wt. Loss Na+ restriction (<1.5 gm/d) additive to DASH ( ↓ ~4mmHg) More effective: women, age > 45, AA’s, hypertensives Magnitude = single drug Rx (11/6mmHg) Add exercise & wt. loss – = ↓ 16/10 mmHg Sacks, NEJM 2001; Bray, AJC 2004; Blumenthal, Arch Int med, 2010

38 LDL cholesterol is known as bad cholesterol. It has a tendency to increase risk of heart disease LDL cholesterol is a major component of the plaque that clogs arteries HDL cholesterol is known as the good cholesterol. Higher in women, increases with exercise and when quit smoking HDL cholesterol helps carry some of the bad cholesterol out of arteries. Good vs. BAD Cholesterol

39 Know your Numbers! Desirable numbers Total cholesterol < 200; LDL < 100 HDL > 40 (men) >50 (women) Triglycerides < 150 Get the levels tested routinely and keep them under control The only thing worse than finding out that you have one of these conditions is…….NOT finding out that you have it!!

40 Cholesterol/Lipids Key is to Know your numbers Optimal levels of cholesterol (lipids) are as follows: – LDL-C < 100 mg/dL – HDL-C > 50 mg/dL for women, >40 in men – Triglycerides < 150 mg/dL – Non-HDL-C < 130 mg/dL (Non-HDL-C equals total cholesterol minus HDL-C)

41 Approximate and Cumulative LDL Cholesterol Reduction Achievable By Diet and Weight Loss Modifications Dietary Component Dietary Change Approximate LDL Reduction Major Saturated fat< 7% of calories8-10% Dietary cholesterol*< 200 mg/day3-5% Weight reductionLose 10 lbs.5-8% Other LDL-lowering options Viscous fiber5-10 g/day3-5% Plant/sterol2 g/day6-15% stanol esters Cumulative estimate20-30% * NOTE: New cholesterol guideline recommends <150mg/day Source: Adapted from National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (Adult Treatment Panel III) 2002.

42 Treatment for Cholesterol/Lipids Drugs to lower LDL is recommended simultaneously with lifestyle therapy in those with heart disease to achieve an LDL-C 20% A reduction to < 70 mg/dL is reasonable in very-high-risk

43 People who are overweight (10- 30% more than their normal body weight) Obese have 2 to 6 times the risk of developing heart disease Waist measurement >35 inches for women; >40 inches for men Pears or apples? Obesity and Weight
