Posted November 12, 2018 03:27:46A vegan bodybuilder from California has gone from strength-training to veganism and back, after suffering a heart attack in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Teresa Giude, 43, was in the process of going to the emergency room after suffering an aortic aneurysm and a heart block while exercising at home, a Los Angeles-area hospital said.
She was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for her aortial aneurism, which she suffered while she was still at home.
“She was really weak,” her brother-in-law said.
“She was in so much pain, but she was able to get to the hospital, but it was just too late.”
Her brother-of-two-years said Teresa was a very good-looking woman and had been working as a bodybuilder for a long time.
“I have never heard of a vegan bodybuilding model,” he said.
“But, obviously, this was very difficult for Teresa.”
Doctors say Teresa will have to undergo a long and expensive recovery process before she can return to a normal life.
She is expected to be discharged in the next couple of days.
