What is “Cardiovascular Disease”?
Cardiovascular Disease(CAD) is a kind of Heart Disease which is commonly suffered by many People in the World. Mainly the Heart and the Blood Vessels are the mostly affected human body parts by this Disease. This is a very dangerous disease which brings death to the Human Body if not properly medicated well. CAD gives the Human Body early signs but some people ignore them due to their negligence. But we are unable to say when will this Disease bring us a sudden death as the Heart is the most sensitive part of the Human Body and an tiny malfunction of it would bring the Death to us.
“Prevention is better than Cure” is a famous statement in the Health Care Field. We should always remain vigilant about our Health and should take every opportunity available to prevent our Body from the Diseases. Curing Heart Diseases just like CAD is not an easy work for the Health Care Professionals as it takes much time and continuous medication most probably in whole life time. Despite the fact that the Health Care Sector has been modernized with newly introduced Laboratory facilities and new kind of medications to cure the Heart Diseases still it is completely a hard work, according to the Health Care Professionals. Even if the “Preventing is better than cure “ is an old statement , it is still a worthy Statement most relevant to the present society. So we should always urge the necessity to prevent our Human Body from the Diseases by being involved in the preventive measures prescribed by the Health Care Professionals.
There are many types of Cardiovascular Diseases (CAD)
- Coronary Artery Diseases ( CAD) , commonly known as Heart Attack.
- Hypertensive Heart Disease
- Rheumatic Heart Disease
- Heart Arrhyhmia
- Congenital Heart Disease
- Valyular Heart Disease
Are some of them. But if we are always involved in preventive methods we will be able to overcome all the above mentioned diseases and it is a well proven fact by the Health Care Professionals.
The Early Signs of the Cardiovascular Disease .
There are many early signs for a considerable number of mostly prevalent diseases among the people except sudden diseases occurred by accidents and committing suicide attempts. Due to the negligence and the ignorance of people, these early signs are vanished down and a sudden start of a disease only warns people about the risk of diseases like CAD. So we should always take into our consideration that the early signs of a disease should not be ignored or neglected and a consultation of a Doctor is much compulsory to prevent the disease which would otherwise bring a sudden death to people unexpectedly.
The modern Health Care Experts indicate that the all Heart Problems do not occur with clear early signs. The main reason for this is that some Heart Symptoms do not even happen in your Heart and it is not always easy to tell what is going on.
But following are the most common Early Signs of “ Cardiovascular Disease”
- Chest Discomfort.
This is a most common sign in a Heart Failure. If your Heart is not in normal functional state , you will always feel pain, tightness, or some pressure in your chest. But this chest discomfort varies from person to person and it would be intolerable for some people and a nothing but a small pain for some other people.
- Nausea, Indigestion, Heartburn, or Stomach Pain.
The above signs may also be the early signs of a Heart Attack. Even the vomiting will be occurred under these circumstances. According to the Heart Specialists the women are more likely to be having these types of symptoms than men,
The stomach Pains are usually happened due to the improper intake of meals we eat but there is a firm connection between the Stomach Pains and Heart. If you have a stomach pain with the other signs mentioned above it is much better to consult a Doctor as soon as possible.
- You feel Dizzy or Lightheaded.
If you loss your balance or feel faint for a moment it is likely that your blood pressure has dropped down because your heart is not able to pump sufficient blood than it should be. Most commonly we can have a sudden unsteady status with a chest discomfort with this sign and it clearly shows the malfunctioning of the Heart.
- Throat or Jaw pain.
The Throat or Jaw pain is probably not connected to any sort of Heart Disease. Usually it is caused by a cold, sinus problem or by a muscular issue.
But the center of your chest is paining with much pressure and spreads up into your throat or jaw, most probably it could be a sign of a Heart Attack.
- You get exhausted easily.
Extreme exhaustion or unexplained weakness are also some early signs of a Cardiovascular Disease. You will feel suddenly fatigued or winded after doing something, which you had no problem in the past. These are very clear signs of a cardiovascular disease and the a consultation of a Heart Specialist should be done immediately.
It is normal to Snore a little while you snooze but unusually loud snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea. If you stop breathing for brief moments several times while you are still sleeping puts extra stress on your Heart.
Another early warning of a Heart Disease is the Sweating unusually without no obvious heavy work or reason. According to the Heart Specialists this happens because of the malfunctioning of the Heart and the person gets quickly tired because of the less blood circulation to the vessels.
8 A Cough that Won’t Quit.
Many of think that the Coughing do not have a firm relationship with the Heart Diseases. But if you have a continuous Cough that produces a white or pink mucus it is a sign of a Heart Failure. The reason for this is the Heart can’t keep up with the Body demand causing blood to leak back into lungs.
9 Legs Feet and Ankles are Swollen,
This sign indicated that your Heart doesn’t pump blood as effectively as it should. This causes Bloating as the Heart can’t pump blood fast and blood backs up in the veins.
10 Irregular Heart Beat.
If your Heart is beating out of time for more than just a few seconds , or if it happens often, then it would also be a sign a Heart Failure. But it is normal for your Heart to race when you are nervous or excited oe to skip or add a beat once in a while.
Reasons for Cardiovascular Diseases.
There are many reasons for Cardiovascular Diseases. Some of these reasons are caused by our busy day to day Schedule , Stress in the working place and due to lack of regular exercises. In the modernized world People are always running in a competitive race to earn much more money. Then there is no time for them to do regular exercises by which we can prevent not only the Cardiovascular Diseases but also other diseases like Diabetics, Cholesterol and so on.
The Dietary intake plays a significant role in the Heart Diseases. If meals full of cholesterol, for instance Meat, Fried Instant Meals like Rolls, Cutlets, and Alcohol and Tobacco increase the possibility of the tendency for Heart Diseases.
Genetics is also a cause for Cardiovascular Diseases. Heart Problems in a person’s parents increase the risk in 3 folds. According to the recent Researches women are more likely to be suffering from Cardiovascular Diseases than men on the basis of Genetics. Another commonly known reasons for this cardiovascular diseases can be mentioned as Age, Sex, Air Pollution , Depression and traumatic stress , sleep disorders and occupational exposure to unhealthy conditions.
How to prevent Cardiovascular Diseases.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this Article “The Prevention is better than cure”. So we should take all the precautionary steps to prevent ourselves from these Cardiovascular Diseases which could bring us Death at an unexpected moment.
Regular Exercises play a vital role in preventing cardiovascular diseases. When we do exercises our Blood Circulation is done in a very stimulate manner and the blood starts to flow across the blood vessels with much high pressure so that if some cholesterol is positioned on the Blood Vessels they are vanished up. Then our Heart is able to pump blood easily and there is no pressure for the Heart distribute blood all over the Body. So there will be no any sort of Cardiovascular diseases to you, if you continue to do some regular exercises.
We should always pay our meticulous attention to the meals we consume which directly affect the tendency of Cardiovascular Diseases. We must consume fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid eating cholesterol filled meals like meat and fried food.
The Health is Wealth so we have to be in happy and contended working environments and avoid stressful occupational exposure to prevent ourselves from the Cardiovascular Diseases. In conclusion, I urge the relevant Health Care Organizations to come forward without delay to conduct some Awareness Programmes to the General Public on the importance of preventing the Cardiovascular Diseases. Our sole objective is to create a Healthy Future Generation who would work for the entire development and progress of our County. To fulfill this ambition we should work collaboratively with each other with real commitment.
