Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
The life expectancy can not be predicted as such.
The risk factors like diabetes, high blood pressure need to be controlled.
Smoking should be stopped.
Any other factors like abnormal lipid levels, anemia, obesity should be corrected.
Treatment of those risk factors, life style changes would help to prevent any untoward event.
Doctor may prescribe statin, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, nitroglycerin, aspirin according to your need.
Regular follow up with doctor is necessary.
Please avoid stress, anxiety, over exertion.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
