Since my Nstemi MI last October, I am following a plant based whole food diet and have lost a lot of weight and my blood pressure sometimes gets really low and I am getting shortness of breath which feels more like diaphragm isn't expanding properly.
I've seen cardio the other week and had an echo which he says is normal with an ejection fraction of 69% (this was 67% directly after MI). He said the sooner you can get off ticagrelor the better as I still get chest aches/burning although these have improved. I had endoscopy revealing gastritis which I presume causes some of my symptoms. What I forgot to ask is, if I am compliant with plant based diet and my Bp drops to silly figures like 88/52 surely I could come off bisoprolol and Ramipril otherwise there would be no point in following this diet which claims to reverse heart disease.
Has anyone else managed their disease with diet alone apart from maybe say taking aspirin once a day? Also has anyone else felt shortness of breath due to the meds?
