How do I manage my microvascular angina on a daily basis?

Managing your microvascular angina usually includes living an overall healthy lifestyle. Walking or other less-intense exercise for 30 minutes a day, five days a week can help strengthen your heart and get your body to a healthy weight. Quitting smoking can help reduce symptoms of microvascular angina. Also, eating a diet that's low in fat and high in heart-healthy lean meats, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains is also recommended. Try to reduce your stress levels so that you prevent excess strain on your heart.
