If you carry on like that, I'll have had a heart attack by the time I'm 30!


Explanation:
Infart = heart attack.
The phrasing is quite colloquial and sounds like dialogue. Good luck.

If you keep on like this, you're going to give me a heart attack before


Explanation:
"abans de" means before so the phrase is broken off at this point
"infart" is a heart attack
"continues" is second person familiar of continue, keep on
aixi=like this

If you carry on like this I will have a heart attack before I'm 30.


Explanation:
I have written I will and not I'll as the word si is there for emphasis. This is colloquial language and unlikely to be found in a medical report.

If you go on like this (that), I will surely have a heart attack before...


Explanation:
The use of 'will' is needed because 'tindré' is a future tense. The addition of 'surely' is due to the emphasis given by 'si que...'. Meaning that following a certain conduct, will ____undoubtedly____ cause a heart attack.

Hope it helped.
