Heart Health And Ageing
The heart is a strong muscle that pumps blood to your body, a sudden hindrance in the functioning of the organ can thus lead to death, as the blood flow stops completely, causing cells to die. People above 50 are much more likely than younger people to suffer a heart attack, to have a stroke, or to develop coronary heart disease (commonly called heart disease) and heart failure. However, the cases of heart attack deaths in India show it’s not just the age, but also how one is taking care of the body and the organ after crossing 45.
Why does this happen? Ageing can cause changes in the heart and blood vessels. A major risk factor behind fatal heart disease is the buildup of fatty deposits on the walls of arteries present inside the heart over many years. This hinders the blood flow and thus increases the chances of a person suffering a heart attack or cardiac arrest.
The most common risk factor that increases as we age are the increased stiffness of the large arteries, called arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. This condition can lead to a sudden increase in one’s blood pressure, giving more pressure on the heart to function properly. High blood pressure, or hypertension is a condition that becomes more deadly and common as we age. Below mentioned are 9 signs of heart problems that one should look out for as they cross 50.
Frequent chest pain during physical activities
Tiredness or extreme fatigue
Pain or numbness in the shoulders, arms, neck, jaw or back.
Shortness of breath
High Blood Pressure, or Hypertension
A sudden increase in high blood sugar levels
Remember, it is important that you take proper care of your heart from an early age to make sure it is happy and healthy even after you cross 50. Some of these care starts from your house, a change in diet, exercising regularly, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and keeping high blood cholesterol levels under check is important.
