Cardiovascular disease Disease

Cardiovascular disease – Coronary Artery Disease: Causes, Symptoms, Pathophysiology and Prevention.

Do you want to live your life more than 55-60 years? If your answer is YES then you need to read this. Why? Because one in every four death is happening due to Cardiovascular disease (CVS). Let’s discuss about the most deadliest CVS disease in the world i.e, CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE.

Two things that SHOCKED me in real is that :

  • Some people have NO SYMPTOMS at all , which is fairly typical during the early stages of the disease. 
  • And secondly, it starts coming in role from your very early life i.e, 10 to 15 year. Isn’t it too early?

Probably at this age we would be talking about why we love red color or playing video games. Isn’t it? Somehow, we aren’t aware or conscious about these things and that’s our biggest mistake I can say!!

According to WHO, this disease lacks AWARENESS. I mean how can world’s deadliest disease can lack awareness!! But this is the truth. Feeling worried? Don’t, we have came up with a solution. So, smile : ) and continue reading :

Let’s dive straight to know :

What is Coronary Artery Disease?

Coronary artery disease is an INFLAMMATORY disease which is caused by plaque buildup in the wall of the coronary arteries (that supply blood to the heart). 

Pathophysiology (how CAD takes place inside your artery) :

  • CAD is an INFLAMMATORY condition of the blood vessels of the heart.
  • Various metabolic factors damage the innermost lining of blood vessels, which trigger an inflammatory mediators like cytokines.
  • Cytokines, metalloproteinase and other inflammatory molecules attract immune cells and this forms plaque build up.
  • As connective tissue and lipids fill this plaque, a fibroma develops that is capped by endothelial lining and smooth muscle cells.
  • And then the fibroids grows in size until it significantly occludes the artery, subsequently causing obstruction for the blood flow to the heart.

What causes plaque formation in the arteries?

1. Saturated and trans fats in the diet tend to increase LDL cholesterol ( bad cholesterol) in the blood which leads to plaque formation.

2. Lack of Physical Activities lead us towards obesity.

3. High blood pressureIt can damage your blood vessels by making them weak in some areas.

4. Smoking tobacco products – It can damage your blood vessels and heart.

5. Diabetes – People with diabetes have a much higher incidence of CAD.

6. Re-using cooking oils – Reusing oil for cooking in Asian Indian cultures is common and it increases risk Of CAD development.

Symptoms:

It may range from no symptoms to following :

  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Heart attack

Strategies to reduce CAD/ Prevention:

1. Dietary Changes – Make fruits and vegetables part of every meal.

Some food increases inflammatory reactions in our body and also responsible for our elevated blood sugar. So, Avoid the following:

  • High fat dairy
  • Re-using oil ( for cooking )
  • butter
  • gravy
  • non-dairy creamers
  • fried foods
  • processed meats
  • pastries
  • certain cuts of meat
  • junk foods, like potato chips, cookies, pies, and ice cream
  • condiments like mayonnaise and ketchup
  • table salt
  • packaged meals

2. Yoga/Exercise. Do any sort of physical activity to maintain wait and burn the calories you had in your diet.

3. Reduce stress. It can increase blood pressure and damage your artery walls.

4. Limit Alcohol. Drink in moderation — one drink a day for women, and one to two a day for men. Of course, ask your doctor if it’s safe for you to drink at all. 

5. Quit Tobacco products. Tobacco smoke narrow your arteries and damage your heart. If you smoke cigarettes

Also, the American Lung Association is a great resource for finding support or counseling if you’re committed to quitting smoking.

TAKEAWAY :

Take steps to protect yourself. Start with lifestyle changes like diet and exercise. If those aren’t enough, ask your doctor about medications to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol and prevent blood clots.

Save your child/ Your child needs you.

I am 21 years young girl and believe me I still feel like a child because DIL TO BACHHA HAI JI but you call me a woman? Since my birth? No? Okay than since I started crawling? No no walking!! It sounds good that’s why. I feel like being a girl I have gone through a lots good as well as bad things in these 21 years. So, let’s discuss about some STRANGE but FAMILIAR things to us. Back then when I was kid I never felt like a kid because I have to behave like a conscious kid all the times. Because society won’t accept a 9 or 10 years girl kid is just relaxing on a couch with open legs (unconsciously) after learning how to make chapattis round. Why they will not accept me mom? – the little asked with innocence. Mom said because you are a girl and you can’t sit like that it’s a bad sign. Okay So I am grown and I am thinking that my mom was right because atleast she made me learn some good personality habits but now I am stucked in my life and my parents never taught me how to deal with this situation.

Instead of teaching how to sit and how a girl should dress up in a respectable way if parents start making their children learn that :

How a child or any individual can prevent themselves from getting into criminal activities?

What will be the consequences if they’ll get involved into those activities and how it will affect their own life?

Why anybody should not pass judgement on anyone without knowing them?

What to do if someone infront of you is doing a crime or someone is innocent and things are happening with them?

How to deal with anger issues?

How to treat others / other gender?

Which things should not be tolerated at all?

Why YouTube is full of this type of questions and answers? Because our parents didn’t taught us these things and now we are asking Google and YouTube that how to be a better individual, how to deal with anxiety etc.

These matters can profit both the gender and atleast it makes some sort of sense. We are constantly blaming the criminals, rapists etc but did anyone of us focused that from where these things were initiated? Not supporting them but atleast this is a major cause behind criminal or plunder activities.

Don’t you think that by modifying parenting we can lessen the numbers of daily crime? For changing society parents can teach their children how to sit and how to eat but these are the things that a child can learn from you on their own by observing you but he/she can’t learn these above mentioned questions without any guidance. It should be the foremost duty of parents to teach their children these small chapters of life since their childhood. So that being 21 years women how I sit consciously now it’s just because my parents made my habit by constantly heckling me since my childhood. So this constant heckling on those above mentioned questions could also have been changed me as an individual, many other child and so many other individuals who have already committed plunder activities.

PARENTHOOD NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. These small things can contribute to make us a person – better or worse. Parenting plays a very crucial role in every childrens life and society. I think GOOD PARENTING leads to BETTER and SAFE SOCIETY.

If we can’t make a small change in our behaviour how can we expect from a theif , a rapist, a criminal not to commit whatever they are doing?

This is just a small thing from my side. Do you agree that – Good parenting leads to safe and better society and the no. of crimes being committed daily in today’s world can be decreased by changing the way of parenting?

If you agree let me know what do you think on this? And if you don’t agree or think I am wrong let me know your views too it’ll help me and many others to change their thought process.
