3 Types Of Heart Problems Will Save Your Life

Heart disease takes many lives every year. To prevent developing heart problems, you can make certain lifestyle changes.

There are three kinds of heart problems: stroke, heart attack, and cardiac arrest.

Let’s take a look at them in detail.

1. Heart attack.

Heart attacks are pretty common these days. It happens when our heart muscle is starting to die. The blood supply to our heart is cut off, and it does not receive the amount of oxygen it needs. Some signs can warn you that you will experience a heart attack. People who have gone through this situation have reported pain in their upper body or chest. Shortness of breath, fatigue, sweating, and nausea often follow. These symptoms can also indicate that you might have some other health problem, but if they appear with chest pain, this usually shows that you might experience a heart attack soon. People can also feel tightness around their bodies during this moment. However, you have to keep in mind that chest pain can sometimes be only due to bloating or some other mild issue.

2. Cardiac arrest.

Cardiac arrest is another heart issue. It is different from a heart attack and can occur at any time. It happens when our heart stops beating. The heart’s electrical impulse deviates from its usual pattern, and as a result, cardiac arrest occurs. Sometimes, cardiac arrest victims survive, but they have to live with a severe disability for the rest of their lives. Chest pains, dizziness, and fatigue are some common symptoms of cardiac arrest. People also experience heart palpitations. It’s like skipping a heartbeat. Panicking in this situation makes it worse.

Obesity and poor diet choices are linked with cardiac arrest. Most cardiac arrest victims die even before they reach the hospital. That is why you have to take precautions so that you don’t suffer from cardiac arrest at any point in your life. Eating healthy foods and maintaining an average weight are some ways to prevent heart issues.

3. Stroke.

Another heart problem is stroke. You can experience a stroke when the regular blood supply to your brain is reduced. This causes a blood vessel to bleed after it ruptures. As a result, the tissues in your brain are deprived of oxygen and blood. A stroke kills the victims quite quickly once a low supply of oxygen kills the cells. The worst part is that even if people survive, they can suffer from paralysis and brain damage for the rest of their lives. You can identify a stroke from these symptoms: numbness on one side of your body, slurred speech, paralysis, trouble keeping balance, dizziness, and confusion.

Although alcohol and smoking can cause a stroke, an unhealthy diet also plays a significant part. If you consume saturated fats, cholesterol, and salty foods, you will bring this heart problem upon yourself. So, try to maintain a healthy diet.
