James Martin health: The chef at risk of a life-threatening condition – symptoms to spot

Speaking to The Herald James said: “Heart disease has been an issue in my family for generations. My dad likes his food deep-fried with lots of butter, but he doesn’t like running it off.” Seemingly a love of butter is something that runs in the Martin family too.“I don’t do much exercise either. James continued. “When you’re a big bloke like my grandfather, father and me, it’s not as easy to stay fit as it is for someone who’s a bit smaller.”Sadly however, his father and formerly the resident chef of Castle Howard in Yorkshire has suffered three heart attacks. James’ late paternal grandfather also died of heart disease.

Symptoms of heart disease include:

  • Blood vessel disease, such as coronary artery disease
  • Heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias)
  • Heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects)
  • Heart valve disease
  • Disease of the heart muscle
  • Heart infection.
