Risk Factors Heart Disease & Stroke

There are various kinds of heart disease, but heart disease is coronary heart disease is generally feared because it strikes at the productive age and can lead to sudden death heart attacks. The cause of coronary heart disease is the narrowing and blockage of coronary arteries.

Narrowing and blockage of the coronary arteries caused by the buildup of fatty substances (cholesterol, triglycerides) are more and more and accumulate beneath the innermost layer (endothelium) of the artery wall. This reduces or stops blood flow to the heart muscle that it interferes with the heart as the blood pumping. Dominant effect of coronary heart disease is the loss of oxygen and nutrients to the heart due to reduced blood flow to the heart. Formation of fatty plaques in arteries will influence the formation of blood clots that will encourage a heart attack.

There are four main factors causing heart disease, namely:

1. Smoking too much over the years

2. levels of blood fats (cholesterol) is high

3. High blood pressure

4. diabetes

Like heart disease, stroke is also closely associated with vascular disorders. Stroke occurs because there is an interruption of blood flow to the brain. When there are brain regions that lack blood supply suddenly and sufferers have neurological disorders according to the affected brain regions. It might be paralyzed side (hemiplegia), reduced the power side of the body (hemiparesis), speech impairment, impaired taste (sensation) in the skin next to the face, arm or leg.

Foods that contain lots of cholesterol accumulate in the blood vessel walls and cause atherosclerosis that trigger heart disease and stroke.

Quitting smoking is the target to be achieved, also avoid smoke from the environment. Smoking causes reduced blood vessel elasticity, thereby increasing the hardening of the arteries, and increases blood clotting factors that trigger heart disease and stroke. Smokers have a chance of stroke and coronary heart disease about two-fold higher compared with nonsmokers.

Drink alcohol in moderation. The more alcohol then chances are hemorrhagic strokes, especially the higher type. Alcohol can raise blood pressure, weakened heart, thicken blood and cause arterial spasms.

Perform exercise / physical activity. Exercise can help reduce body weight, controlling cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and other risk factors which are affected by heart disease and stroke

Control high blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Hypertension is a major factor of stroke and coronary heart disease. Diabetes also increases the risk of stroke from 1.5 to 4 times as much, especially if blood sugar is not under control.
