Abdominal aortic aneurysm which leads to a ruptured aortic aneurysm which in most cases is deadly is treatable if caught early enough. Abdominal arteries are those arteries that supply the body with blood from the heart. Aortic means below the chest and is the most common form of aneurism. An aneurism is a widening of the artery due to high blood sugar, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure. The biggest danger of an aorta aneurism is rupture. Aortic aneurism that leads to rupture is almost 90% fatal. A rupture occurs when the aneurism breaks open and send blood in to the body. It is essential that aneurism of the aorta is detected so your doctor can provide treatment immediately for your aneurysm abdominal aortic.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of aortic aneurysms are usually not experienced until it is too late. If the patient does have symptoms of aortic aneurism they are usually extreme pain in the abdomen or back. However, most cases of aortic aneurism do not give the patient any symptoms of aortic aneurism at all, or until its too late. Aorta aneurysm can be treated before rupture in a variety of ways. If the aneurism to relatively small, the condition can sometimes be reversed through diet and exercise.

It can not be exaggerated that the number one cause of aneurism of the aorta is poor diet. A diet without saturated fat, trans fat, and simple sugars is the best way to treat a variety of risk factors associated with heart disease, stroke, and aneurism of abdominal aortic. If you are diagnosed with an abdominal aneurysm aortic your doctor will prescribe a diet without these fats and sugars. He will also insist that you start to exercise regularly. Obesity is a big risk factor for aortic aneurism and can be changed with a little discipline and determination. Something as a walk in the park every day will help you lose those pounds and reduce the risk of an aorta aneurism.

Because the symptoms of abdominal aortic are not usually apparent it is important to change your lifestyle before it is too late. It is important that we all take a look at our daily lives and how we live them. If we take a proactive stance to our health while we are young we can greatly reduce our chance of major health problems later, including aortic aneurism.

High blood pressure is another cause of aortic aneurisms. High blood pressure can also be treated with exercise and diet. In addition there are several medications your doctor can prescribe that can help you lower your blood pressure. Regular blood pressure tests can also be an important way to keep your high blood pressure under control. Because aortic aneurisms are bulges in the aorta, when the bulge is bombarded with fast moving blood they are more likely to increase the size of an aneurism which in turn can lead to rupture, which is very dangerous, and in most cases fatal.

    Dear Elizabeth, My first response is to get a much better medical opinion. Although you did not say what the severity of the aneurism was (which may account for the very basic advice from the hospital), this is obviously nothing to take lightly. There are many steps he can take while working with a good doctor to both help and monitor his condition. Certainly normalizing blood pressure is important, along with not being overweight. Citrus foods are excellent as they both help improve circulation and help strengthen blood vessel walls. (The white pulp in citrus is a rich source of bioflavanoids, needed healthy vessel walls). He can also take nutrition supplements, making sure your doctor is aware of what he is doing, that can both help circulation and strengthen vessel walls. There are a myriad of nutrients which are required for proper arterial health, so a comprehensive regimen should be considered. A good diet with moderate exercise and the proper supplements can go a long way in helping correct his condition, but be patient and allow his body to heal itself. Good Luck, Meridith

    My husband was just diagnosed with an Abdominal Aortic Aneurism. The hospital did not give him any advice other than take Advil when in pain. He has high blood pressure, but has dropped about 20 lbs. and with no explanation for that as well. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks, Elizabeth
