PowerPoint Presentation:

High Blood Pressure High blood pressure can also cause ischemic heart disease. This means that the heart muscle isn't getting enough blood. Ischemic heart disease is usually the result of atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries (coronary artery disease), which impedes blood flow to the heart.

Diuretics Beta-blockers ACE inhibitors Calcium channel blockers A ngiotensin II receptor blockers Vasodilators. How Is Hypertensive Heart Disease Treated? In order to treat hypertensive heart disease, your doctor has to treat the high blood pressure that is causing it. He or she will treat it with a variety of drugs:

PowerPoint Presentation:

There’s a big link between diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. In fact, two out of three people with diabetes die from heart disease or stroke, also called cardiovascular disease. Clogged blood vessels can lead to heart attack, stroke, and other problems. But there are treatments for heart disease, stroke, and blood vessel disease. Diabetes and Heart disease

PowerPoint Presentation:

The inner lining of blood vessels known as the endothelium can be damaged, for example affecting the ability of the blood vessels to relax or dilate. This may impair the regulation of the blood flow. The damage of the blood vessels can also appear early in the course of diabetes before the onset of detectable vascular disease.

PowerPoint Presentation:

To complicate matters further, common chronic diabetes complications such as neuropathy and nephropathy can themselves have adverse effects on the heart and circulation. As a result, as diabetes progresses, the heart and blood vessels are exposed to multiple attacks, all of which can interact with each other to produce severe consequences. Diabetes and Coronary Heart Disease Cont …

PowerPoint Presentation:

The chemicals in tobacco smoke harm your blood cells. They also can damage the function of your heart and the structure and function of your blood vessels. This damage increases your risk of atherosclerosis How D oes Smoking Affect Your Heart And Blood Vessels

PowerPoint Presentation:

Extra weight is thought to lead to increased total cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of coronary artery disease. Obesity increases your chances of developing other risk factors for heart disease, especially high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and diabetes. How does Being Overweight Cause Coronary Heart Disease?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Regular physical activity reduces the risk of dying prematurely from CVD. It also helps prevent the development of diabetes, helps maintain weight loss, and reduces hypertension, which are all independent risk factors for CVD. Less active, less fit persons have a 30-50 percent greater risk of developing high blood pressure. Physical inactivity is a significant risk factor for CVD itself P hysical Inactivity For C ardiovascular D isease

PowerPoint Presentation:

You have a family history of early heart disease if a first-degree relative (parent, brother or sister, or child) was diagnosed with heart disease or died suddenly from heart problems before age 65 in female relatives, or before age 55 in male relatives. Having A Family H istory of E arly Heart D isease

PowerPoint Presentation:

Heart disease is a complex disease that is partly caused by genes inherited from your parents. These genetic factors and their interaction with lifestyle factors (such as diet and exercise) determine your likelihood of developing heart disease and heart disease risk factors. How D oes F amily H istory P ut M e A t Risk ?

PowerPoint Presentation:

As we age, our hearts tend to not work as well. The heart's walls may thicken, arteries may stiffen and harden, and the heart is less able to pump blood to the muscles of the body. Because of these changes, the risk of developing cardiovascular disease increases with age. Because of their sex hormones, women are usually protected from heart disease until menopause, and then their risk increases. Women 65 and older have about the same risk of cardiovascular disease as men of the same age . How Does Age Effect Coronary Heart Disease?
