There are many types of heart and blood vessel diseases most of which can be prevented with simple measures.
Atherosclerosis, in simple terms, is hardening of arteries. There is a build-up of plaque in the inner walls of arteries which causes narrowing, limiting blood flow to the heart and brain. It is usually caused by a diet high in fat, cigarette smoking, diabetes or hypertension. Sometimes, this plaque can break open. When this happens, a blood clot forms and blocks blood flow in the artery. This can cause a heart attack or stroke.
Hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the most common manifestation of atherosclerosis and may lead to heart attacks, heart faiure, blindness, strokes, kidney failure, etc.
It generally doesn’t exhibit any symptoms and that’s why it is more dangerous. Regular screening, prevention and appropriate treatment is the key to control it.
Heart Attack occurs when the heart’s blood supply is suddenly cut off due to rupture of a cholesterol plaque which leads to clot formation and complete occlusion of the artery.
When this happens, a part of the heart muscle begins to die. Damage increases the longer an artery stays blocked. In some cases, it may even die, causing permanent damage to the heart or even death. The blocked artery needs be opened as soon as possible to reduce heart damage.
Heart Failure means that your heart isn’t pumping blood as well as it should. It keeps working, but the body doesn’t get all the blood and oxygen it needs.
The common causes behind heart failure include diabetes mellitus, uncontrolled hypertension, obesity, sleep apnea, family history of heart failure, heavy alcohol or drug abuse, heart attacks, heart rhythm disorders, valve problems and congenital heart diseases.
Stroke & TIA
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that feeds the brain gets blocked (ischemic stroke) or bursts (hemorrhagic stroke). Then that part of the brain can’t work, and neither can the part of the body it controls.
Uncontrolled high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, smoking and heart disease put you at a higher risk for stroke.
TIAs, or transient ischemic attacks, are “warning strokes” that can happen before a major stroke. They happen when a blood clot clogs an artery for a short time. The signs of a TIA are like a stroke, but they usually last only a few minutes. If you have any of these signs, get to a hospital right away!
