Difficult sweating can be a symptom that portends a heart attack, according to cardiologist David Newby of the University of Edinburgh.

Timely diagnosis of a heart attack is very important, as it can increase the effectiveness of treatment.

A key part of early treatment is the recognition of warning signs linked to a heart attack. Certain symptoms are quite easy to detect, as a sudden pain or discomfort in chest.

According to David Newby, sudden sweating may also be a symptom of a heart attack. This symptom can be difficult to notice if you, for example, in the gym or sauna.

“But feeling hot and clammy along with chest pain is a sign that you should call an ambulance,” warns Newby

To prevent heart problems, David Newby recommends reducing the amount of saturated fat in the diet, the sources of which are foods such as sausages and fatty meat, fried foods, cakes and pastries, palm oil products.

According to Express, unsaturated fatty acids, unlike saturated ones, are more beneficial for the heart and arteries. Today, science knows monounsaturated fats (olive oil, almonds, unsalted cashews, avocados) or polyunsaturated fats (sunflower oil, walnuts, sunflower seeds, fatty fish).
