Needless to say, coronary artery disease is a very serious condition. It is a disease that, as the name suggests, affects the coronary arteries. It is also known as atherosclerotic heart disease. The coronary arteries are the arteries that deliver oxygen-rich blood to the myocardium (heart muscle). The disease results from a build up of atheromatous plaques within the arterial walls of the coronary arteries. These plaques are deposits that clog the arteries. They are composed of macrophage cells, fatty deposits, fibrous connective tissue and other debris.
Disability Tax Credit for those with Coronary Artery Disease
What happens in a heart attack is that plaque blocks the supply of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the myocardium (heart muscle). What makes coronary artery disease especially deadly is that it can grow silently without detection for years. Plaque builds up in the arteries and suddenly a heart attack will strike without warning. Causes of coronary artery disease are the same things that cause a person to be generally unhealthy: lack of exercise, smoking, drinking, stress, obesity and old age. Importantly, as in most diseases, there is also a genetic predisposition.
For the prevention of coronary artery disease doctors recommend strategies such as reducing the amount of fat in the diet, exercising and avoiding activities such as smoking and drinking. Significantly, age and family history are also an important factor, and despite a healthy lifestyle the disease may still manifest.
If you or a family member has suffered coronary artery disease you have no doubt encountered serious physical disability. Perhaps the disability has restricted your movement; has compromised your mobility or ability to work or earn a living in some way. If so, you very likely qualify for the Disability Tax Credit. Part of the process to claim the credit is to obtain a Disability Tax Credit Certificate from your own doctor. If the disability has lasted more than a year, and you meet some other conditions, you will likely qualify.
