Working closely with your doctor at The Bethencourt Group in Long Beach, CA and making lifestyle changes can greatly improve your heart health after a heart attack. Experimental research and clinical studies believe it may even be possible to reverse the damage done by a heart attack. This was not thought possible at one time, but recent discoveries and new procedures can strengthen a once weakened heart.
We will look at what you can do to help strengthen your heart, and what may be coming soon for reversing heart damage.
A young athlete participating in organized sports or heavy exercise dies from sudden cardiac arrest every 3 days in the United States. Put another way, that is less than about 100 young athletes per year.
No matter how you consider these statistics, it’s devastating if it’s your child. The media will often cover these sad stories because they are so, seemingly, rare. No doubt you have read about these tragedies and wonder why they happen.
Let’s review the causes of sudden heart death in young athletes, and how they can be prevented in Los Angeles, CA.
Each day, nearly 2,300 Americans die due to complications of cardiovascular disease. Globally, this number of deaths can reach more than 18 million annually, and continues to increase year over year. As a federally designated month in the United States, American Heart Month helps to shine a light on preventative health measures everyone can take to decrease this number. With heart disease as the leading cause of death for both men and women, it’s important to take even the smallest of steps to make a large impact.
If you have unexplainable leg pain, especially after walking or exercising, you could be one of the eight to ten million people in the United States who suffer from Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD.) This condition is often under diagnosed and untreated, which is a serious problem due to the danger that it can pose.
If you have coronary artery disease (CAD), then you are one of more than 3 million people in the United States who have this condition.
CAD is caused by cholesterol and plaque build-up on the inner walls of the arteries that supply blood to your heart. Over time, this plaque can harden and restrict the flow of oxygen to your heart. This can eventually block your arteries completely causing a heart attack.
We all feel stressed and anxious from time to time, but can these feelings have long-term effects on our health? Studies show that they may. Symptoms of anxiety over long periods of time can begin to place unnecessary stress on the heart, increasing the risk of heart-related issues.
The heart is the strongest, most important muscle in your body. Though all men and women face the risk of developing heart diseases as they age, there are some ways to maintain a healthy heart for years to come.
In people who suffer from heart disease, doctors have begun noticing a trend where many of these patients also displayed signs of periodontal disease. This trend was confirmed through a series of studies finding that patients with periodontal disease are also more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease. While the data is there to link the two issues, experts have yet to agree on the cause.
Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women.
