You are in control of many of the factors that increase your risk of coronary artery disease and angina. Reducing or eliminating these risk factors can help prevent angina.

Since smoking and obesity both increase your risk of angina, quitting smoking and staying at a healthy weight can help prevent angina. Also, exercise, stress management, and eating a diet high in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables may help. If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol, taking the appropriate steps to manage these conditions will help prevent angina.

If you have stable angina, managing your disease carefully, by taking your medications and making lifestyle changes that your doctor recommends, can reduce your risk of having angina or heart attack.
