In some cases a person may not have angina or symptoms of heart disease, but it is proved on the basis of ECG or stress test or angiography that his heart is not getting adequate blood. Such a state is called silent ischemia. Such people have defects in the nerves of the heart which lack sensitivity. This a hidden enemy, because a person has a false sense of being safe. He does not believe that he has heart disease and so, usually does not get ready for various investigations, Sometimes such a person may also get silent heart attack and heart gets weakened. Diabetic patients, women, aged persons and persons having addictions are more likely to get silent ischemia and heart attack.
As a result of scientific studies, it is proved that silent ischemia is also a serious illness. Therefore, it also needs to be treated properly. Otherwise weakening of heart, heart attack and other complications can take place.
