Raising awareness of SCAD

Raising awareness of SCAD (Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection) heart attacks.

A SCAD is an emergency condition that occurs when a tear forms in a blood vessel in the heart. Some symptoms of SCAD include, chest pain, shortness of breath, pain in the arms, back, neck, or jaw, as well as nausea, light-headedness, and sweating.

Although SCAD causes a small percentage of heart attacks overall, it’s responsible for 40% of heart attacks in women under the age of 50 and more than 90% of SCAD patients are female.

SCAD patients are generally healthy and don’t have or do the usual things that can lead to heart attacks, such as smoking, diabetes, or being overweight – so SCAD is often misdiagnosed for anxiety and indigestion, as some of the symptoms are similar.

A member of our Leicestershire team, Catherine Beck survived a SCAD twenty three years ago, when she was just 37 years old.

Catherine had her first baby and a SCAD heart attack on the same day, which was life changing for her. The roller coaster of emotions and the physical challenges were a huge toll on Catherine. At the time, very little was known about SCAD and it took Catherine two years to find out about someone else who had suffered a SCAD heart attack.

So much has changed for the better thanks to SCAD research and the Beat SCAD charity, as well as the wealth of information we now have online and the opportunity to connect with other people with similar experiences on social media.



Tips for winter wellbeing from our expert Dr. Sue Jones

Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones. In the UK we get most of our vitamin D from being outside in the sunlight. Between October and early March, the sunlight does not have enough UVB radiation for our skin to be able to make vitamin D. 

We still need vitamin B in winter, to help the body absorb calcium and phosphate from the foods we eat. If we do not get enough of these minerals we can have problems with our bones, teeth and muscles. Strong bones and muscles help us maintain our mobility and independence. People with higher levels of vitamin D have been found to be less likely to have dental problems and gum disease. 

Vitamin D is so important for our health, it is often added as a supplement to our foods. Some breakfast cereals, fat spreads and non-dairy milk alternatives will have vitamin D added. You can also get vitamin D from oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines. Red meats, liver and eggs also contain vitamin D. 

Other benefits of vitamin D are being investigated and include its potential role in helping maintain our mood and mental wellbeing and boosting our immune system. 

The Department of Health recommends some groups of people should take vitamin D supplements, especially in winter. Children under 4 years old and people who are not able to spend time outside regularly are advised to take a supplement. If you have dark skin – for example you have an African, African-Caribbean or south Asian background – you may also not make enough vitamin D from sunlight. It is advisable to speak to your GP or pharmacist if you think you may benefit from taking extra vitamin D, and heed their advice about the right dose for you. Remember to store any supplements out of reach of children or pets. 

Rebuilding muscle and physical strength post lockdown

Rebuilding muscle and physical strength post lockdown

We shared some tips and advice to help mentally prepare people that have been shielding or in a small bubble throughout lockdown in the below article. here we are sharing some advice regarding physical strength as lockdown restrictions ease. ‘Shielding at home’ involved staying indoors, not having visitors, and not taking part in usual activities outside the home. This has led to people being significantly less physically active.

Older adults already have less muscle mass when compared to younger people and the inactivity imposed by lockdown can have negative consequences for health, such as becoming frailer, losing confidence with walking, and being at greater risk of serious diseases such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.  We also need to be outside regularly to absorb vitamin D. Vitamin D is important for our bone and muscle health and it is likely that older adults who have been shielding have had less time in the sunlight.

Regular exercise is key for bone and muscle health. Taking our clients for short strolls is a really good way to start rebuilding their muscles. For the more able, joining a local walking group can be a good way to meet new people and get some gentle exercise. Walking for health can help you find a local group https://www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/

Resistance bands are an effective way to work muscles and improve strength, they are inexpensive to buy and there are lots of ideas for gentle workouts on YouTube. The British Heart Foundation has some excellent suggestions here https://www.bhf.org.uk/informationsupport/heart-matters-magazine/activity/resistance-bands
