What is heart disease?

Heart disease is a serious and chronic condition that involves any disorders that affect the heart. Heart disease can be acquired or inherited. “Acquired” means that you develop it throughout your life, while “inherited” means you were born with certain heart defects. Heart disease is treatable but not necessarily curable.
