Treating heart disease can vary greatly depending on the type of heart disease the patient is determined to have. Medications to regulate the heart rate and sometimes to thin the blood or lower blood pressure may be prescribed. If the heart condition is caused by a bacterium the patient will undergo antibiotic treatments. Changes in diet and exercise are almost always part of a heart treatment plan. Lowering cholesterol and educing saturated fat intake can be a very effective heart treatment plan. Some heart diseases, such as mitral valve prolapse, require little to no treatment. Mitral valve prolapse can be sensitive to stress and other factors, but most cases are not severe enough to require treatment.
