Actor James Gandolfini of 'Sopranos' fame died at the age of 51 after suffering a heart attack.

Dr. Mehmet Oz discussed the warning signs and preventative steps men can take to avoid a heart attack.

“A lot of folks don’t have signs. Ironically, what really threatens the livelihood of men… is heart attacks. Is still the number one cause of death. Half the people who had heart attacks never knew they had heart problems," said Dr.Oz.

Some of the signs to look out for according to Dr. Oz:

Shortness of breath…

Difficulty walking up a couple flights of stairs ...

Measure your waist size around your belly button. That number should not be more than half your height.
