The fact that someone, be that a dietician or your cardiologist, didnâ€™t offer you some diet suggestions at all is frankly reprehensible in my opinion! Surely E.R. set you up with a cardiologist, didnâ€™t they? Egads!
If I were you, I would start fussing and getting answers, beginning with E.R., a place I know well. In fact, call them ASAP and ask why. At very least, regardless of the severity of the myocardial infarction suffered, you should have been seen by and referred to a cardiologist, who should direct all care at this point. And E.R. can get you there, if you arenâ€™t there already. If you have been referred to a cardio, call him/her first!
There are many resources available, as Barbara suggested with her wonderful link. Additionally, you can find our friends at the American Heart Association at www.americanheart.org
However, the medications your S.I. is presently on (aspirin? Clopidogrel? Beta-blockers? Ace-Inhibitors? Cholesterol-reducing meds?) all must be taken into consideration in recommending a diet plan. And your S.I. should also have been referred to a cardiac-rehab plan, as well.
Every patient is different and individual circumstances will vary wildly, so call your doctor and light a raging fire under their royal laurels!
And if you don't have direct answers from these folks within two days, PM me!
