Rosebud, ischaemic heart disease means that your heart is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood anymore. This is usually due to atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries). People often get stents or bypass surgery to rectify the problem. Whatever you do, you can’t just let it be because you might get a heart attack with permanent damage. Good luck.
