SAFAKNA TURKEY – With age, heart disease becomes more common, along with other related problems. Heart disease can be seen at an earlier age in people who have had heart-related losses in the family early in life or who have genetic heart conditions. Elderly people with diabetes and blood pressure diseases, as well as smokers, accompanied by certain complaints, are more likely to develop heart disease.
Not all chest pain means heart disease, the most common complaints of people diagnosed with heart disease are: shortness of breath, chest pain, palpitations and fainting. But not always chest pain, shortness of breath or palpitations mean heart disease. When patients go to the doctor with these complaints, the patient’s medical history and overall risk profile are known. After a detailed examination, it is determined whether these complaints are due to heart disease.
If you wake up at night with a racing heart, beware! A rapid heartbeat can be caused by the hormonal background of the body and physical exertion. Palpitations after light exercise in sedentary people may be due to heart disease; It can also happen as a result of inactivity, due to lack of state. In people who wake up at night with palpitations, experience palpitations at rest, and complain of blackouts, chest pain, and fainting, these palpitations may be a sign of a serious heart condition or rhythm disorder. Chest pain that occurs after age 40 in men and after age 55 in women and in the post-menopausal period, aggravated by exertion and disappearing at rest, should be suggestive of heart disease. People with diabetes and family problems with cholesterol, and those who smoke a lot, may have cardiovascular disease even when they are young.
Shortness of breath can be caused by heart failure. Heart failure is one of the most common heart conditions. Heart failure is a decrease in the pumping ability of the heart for various reasons. In advanced stages, heart failure can cause shortness of breath that wakes you up when you change clothes for daily activities, take a bath, or at night. Among the causes of heart failure; a congenital problem with the heart muscle, long-term uncontrolled blood pressure or rhythm problems, damage to or disease of the heart muscle after a heart attack or heart valve disease. Patients with heart failure must take medication for life. In addition to drug treatment, patients must also observe certain precautions. Patients should not gain weight, lead an active lifestyle, perform appropriate physical exercises and follow a salt-free diet.
Arrhythmias can be treated with ablation. Dyspnea; It can be a symptom of heart failure, being overweight, feeling unwell, having a rhythm disorder, or a defect in the heart valves. A heart rhythm disorder causes the heart to beat too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly. If there is a genetic problem in the family of a prematurely deceased, in the presence of heart failure or a previous heart attack, rhythm disturbance can be a harbinger of sudden cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrhythmias can be treated with medications, ablation techniques, and a pacemaker.
High blood pressure can cause many heart conditions, as well as a very common cardiovascular problem. An intermittent, instantaneous increase in blood pressure or a prolonged uncontrolled increase in blood pressure reduces a person’s quality of life; This can cause problems such as heart failure, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. For this reason, blood pressure control is especially important in patients with cardiovascular disease. Medication is used for high blood pressure, but medication alone is not enough. A person should eat healthy food, stop smoking if he has a habit, exercise, avoid stress and take medication regularly.
These recommendations protect against heart disease. People with a family history of cardiovascular disease should be more vigilant about cardiovascular disease prevention. Knowledge of risk factors is important for protection against cardiovascular disease. Age, gender, and family history are risk factors that cannot be changed. Modifiable risk factors include; diseases such as smoking, stress, overweight, sedentary lifestyle and high blood pressure. Smoking should be avoided as smoking increases the risk of developing heart disease. Leading an active lifestyle, it is very important to play sports. Exercising for 30-40 minutes 5 days a week not only reduces the risk of developing heart disease, but also slows the progression of the disease in people with heart disease and has a positive effect when the treatment regimen is followed. Maintaining an average daily step count of around 7,000 with pedometers has a positive effect on heart health. Weight control must be provided. Especially people with belly fat are at risk for heart disease. Adopt a Mediterranean style of eating that consumes fresh vegetables, fruits, white meats, fish, and healthy fats. A Mediterranean-style diet reduces the risk of many diseases, including heart disease. Avoiding stress and getting enough and regular sleep also protect the cardiovascular system.
