What puts you at risk of getting a heart disease?

gangadharan nair
Coronary artery disease is the main cause of heart attack.
Other risk factors include:-
* Central obesity/ overeating.
* Elevated blood lipids.
* Hypertension.
* Diabetes (hyperglycemia)
* Tobacco smoking.
* Kidney disease.
* Sedentary occupation & lack of exercise.
* Mental stress and strain.
A healthy diet and lifestyle can reduce your risk of:
* Heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke
* Conditions that lead to heart disease, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity
* Other chronic health problems, including type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer

Smoking and alcoholism

Health Buddy
There are many reasons for getting a heart disease. Reasons can be your age, especially if you're above 45 years, your cholesterol level and blood pressure level, if you are a diabetic and if you're obese. Your lifestyle pattern where you smoke and drink more than necessary and harmful to your health is also a reason for you to get at risk of heart troubles. Watch out and enjoy a good life. Eat properly, exercise and keep yourself happy!

Dr Frank
There is always an element of inheritance and ethnic variance.

In terms of lifestyle,smoking is the number one culprit. Then diet in general,ie high fat,low omega 3,low wholegrain,low fruit and vegetables. Finally lack of exercise.

Surya K
mainly things like-
ciggarates,tobacco products,artificial colours,very-low carb diet, and unhealthy lifestyle which does not include any exercise. but includes stress.
defieciency of certain vitamins(i don't know which). high BP and cholestrol.

just an additional help.as i thought you will require this
the first aid for an cardiac arrest is given in points below
1.symptoms like bowel irritation,head ache,discomfort in chest region,vomitting sensation should be considered as early response of cardiac arrest.
2.console the patient that he will be fine and never say he is fine.
3.give 1-2 aspirine immdiately to him/her and ask to bite them to very fine parts and swallow.
4.if you transprot the patient on your own to the hospital always take him in a four wheeler or else take your neighbour's and never take him/her in a two wheeler.

take these points in your mind.always there to answer yah.......

Mainly unhealthy food -- too much meat, fatty milk products etc -- and sedentary habits. Smoking, drinking and stress are big triggers too.

u need a funny fried who can enjoy every moment of ur day in ur life.
More laugh... makes more happy....

Cardiovascular disease can take many forms: high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, stroke, or rheumatic fever/rheumatic heart disease.

High blood pressure increases your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

One of the major risk factors for heart disease is high blood cholesterol. Cholesterol, a fat-like substance carried in your blood, is found in all of your body's cells. Your liver produces all of the cholesterol your body needs to form cell membranes and to make certain hormones

Heart problems are the leading cause of death among people with diabetes, especially in the case of adult-onset or Type II diabetes (also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes). Certain racial and ethnic groups (African Americans, Hispanics, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans) have a greater risk of developing diabetes.

Extra weight is thought to lead to increased total cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of coronary artery disease

Most people know that cigarette and tabacco smoking increases your risk of lung cancer, but fewer realize that it also greatly increases your risk of heart disease and peripheral vascular disease (disease in the vessels that supply blood to the arms and legs).

some pills with resveratrol will decrease the occurence of heart disease

Many things.
Overweight, smoking, an unsuitable diet (too much saturated fat, salt sugar, not enough fruit, vegetables.
Unchecked high blood pressure, high cholesterol, too sedentary a life, being male, family history, diabetes, stress.

Heart disease is an umbrella term for any problem affecting the heart and great vessels, so I would have to ask what heart disease you are referring to, specifically. Some people are born with certain defects, these types of problems we have no control over really and genetics/hereditary tendencies do play a big part as does ethnic origin in some cases.

I assume you are talking about coronary heart disease (the most common). We ALL eventually will develop coronary heart disease to a greater or lesser extent as we age. It is part of the ageing process which indeed starts from the day we are born.

An unhealthy lifestyle accelerates this process, such as an unhealthy diet (excess saturated fats), lack of exercise, excess alcohol and smoking. Obesity's role in heart disease isn't as simple as it sounds but excess weight will put a strain on the organs and increase the risk of high blood pressure and LVH. Other health problems such as diabetes will increase the risk of heart disease too.

We thought we might have frightened you away Nair? But I see you are back with a vengeance.
