FAQ's For Cardiovascular Disease

CVD is caused by blockages or blood clots in the heart and blood vessels due to build-up of fatty deposits.

The common types of cardiovascular disease are coronary heart disease (angina, heart attack, and heart failure), stroke, TIA, peripheral arterial disease, and aortic disease.

CVD is not curable, however it is treatable with lifestyle changes, surgery and medication.

If a patient has a blockage in the heart, they may experience a slowed down or irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, palpitations, lightheadedness and fainting.

Yes, clogged or blocked arteries often lead to hypertension. g

Cardiovascular disease or CVD is an umbrella term for all diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels. The condition is caused by fatty deposits found in the arteries or blood vessels (atherosclerosis) which increase the risk of blockages and blood clots. Heart disease comes under the definition of cardiovascular disease. The cause of cardiovascular disease is most often found to be poor lifestyle choices and can easily be prevented with proper nutrition and exercise.

Cardiovascular disease symptoms depend on the type experienced. There are several different types of CVD, however the main 4 types are as follows:

Coronary heart disease: This occurs when oxygen-rich blood cannot flow to the heart due to blockages or reduced flow. This strains the heart muscles, leading to angina (chest pain), heart attacks and heart failure.

Stroke and Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA): A stroke occurs when blood supply to part of the brain is cut off, resulting in brain damage or even death. TIA, also called a “mini-stroke” happens when blood supply to the brain is cut off for a temporary period of time.
Symptoms of a stroke or TIA are characterized by the acronym FAST:
Face- The face droops to one side
Arms- The patient may not be able to life their arms and keep them there due to numbness or weakness
Speech- Speech is garbled, slurred, or entirely disabled
Time- Time to dial 911 immediately if you see these symptoms

Peripheral Arterial disease: This condition occurs when there is a blockage in the arteries which supply blood to the limbs, most commonly the legs. Symptoms of this condition include:
Dull or cramping leg pain which gets worse while walking
Numbness or weakness in the legs
Ulcers on the legs and feet
Hair loss on the legs and feet

Aortic disease: It is a group of diseases that affect the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body. Aortic aneurysms are the most common form of aortic disease and are characterized by a bugling of the aorta due to weakness. This can rupture and cause fatal bleeding.

The major risk factors of cardiovascular disease are as follows:
High blood pressure
High cholesterol
Sedentary lifestyle, or lack of exercise
Being overweight or obese
Demographic factors like age (common in those over 50 years), race (common in South-Asian, African and Caribbean ethnic backgrounds), and gender (common in men)
Family history of cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease prevention starts with very basic changes that anyone can incorporate into their lifestyle:
• Quit smoking.
• Have a balanced diet that includes heart-healthy foods like plenty of fiber, wholegrains, fruits and vegetables.
• Avoid saturated fats, trans fats, salt, and sugar.
• Maintain a healthy BMI. Those who are obese or overweight run the risk of getting CVD faster than others.
• Regularly exercise.
• Cut down on alcohol consumption

For cardiovascular disease treatment, doctors may prescribe medications like statins which lower cholesterol levels, tablets to reduce blood pressure and low dosages of aspirin to prevent blood clots.

HerbsDaily offers a wide range of supplements effective in treating CVD.
