Heart Disease

Heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease, encompasses a broad range of conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels, with coronary artery disease being the most common form. It is a significant global health concern and a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Heart disease typically develops when plaque, a waxy substance, builds up in the coronary arteries, causing them to narrow and restrict blood flow to the heart muscle. This can result in chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, or in severe cases, heart attacks. Additionally, heart disease may lead to other complications such as heart failure, arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms), and stroke. While various risk factors like smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to its development, proactive measures such as maintaining a healthy diet, engaging in regular physical activity, and regular medical check-ups can help prevent or manage heart disease. Early detection and management are crucial to reducing the risk of complications and improving overall heart health.
