365Telugu.com online news, May 19th, 2023: Deaths due to heart diseases are increasing worldwide recently. According to statistics, coronary heart disease (CHD) kills about 382,820 people every year. The risk of heart disease has further increased due to the deterioration of people’s lifestyle. In recent times, heart related problems are also increasing among the youth.
The main function of the heart is to circulate blood throughout the body. It plays a vital role in supplying oxygen and nutrients to the organs and tissues. But this normal function is impaired due to heart disease.
It has serious effects on health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 4 deaths in the United States each year are caused by heart disease. There are two problems related to heart disease. They are heart attack and heart failure.
A heart attack occurs when normal blood flow to the heart is interrupted. This means that the tissues in this area are not getting the oxygen they need to survive. If a heart attack is not treated immediately, it can damage the heart tissue.
Heart Failure: Occurs when your heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body’s organs and tissues. This type of problem is caused by narrowing of the arteries.
What are the symptoms..?
Symptoms of heart failure and heart attack can be different. You have chest pain mainly due to heart attack. The pain can range from mild to severe. This causes pressure on the chest. Apart from this, it can also cause pain in your arms, shoulders, neck or jaw. Some people may experience shortness of breath, profuse sweating, and even dizziness.
Shortness of breath is the main symptom of heart failure. When the heart can’t supply enough oxygenated blood throughout the body, the lungs have to work harder to take in the extra oxygen. In case of heart failure, there may be weakness or fatigue along with shortness of breath. Moreover, in some, the nails or lips may turn blue.
How to know what the problem..?
Health experts suggest that those who have been suffering from heart disease for a long time should take special care of these risks. Jaws and hands feel pain in heart attack. In very rare cases, respiratory failure is considered the main cause of cardiac arrest. Based on these signs, you can predict body problems. Note : This is information only..

Following a healthy lifestyle and eating a healthy, nutritious diet can help prevent heart disease. If you have any heart problems, avoid alcohol and smoking completely, both of which increase the risk of heart attacks and heart failure, researchers say.
