Protect yourself from heart attack during winter

(UNI) In a hot and humid country like India, everyone romanticizes winter and wait for it all year long but the dip in temperature brings not only comfort of wintry bliss but also several diseases along with it.

Heart attacks can occur during any season, but there is an increased risk for certain types of heart attacks during winter.

Falling temperature can increase the chance of heart attack due to rising blood pressure. Patients who already suffered from heart attack previously or had cholesterol problem and elderly patients above 60 years of age are more prone to heart attacks during winter.
