What is Heart Disease?

There are multiple conditions that are considered under the heart disease umbrella. These conditions involve problems with the circulation of blood throughout the blood vessels and the heart itself. Some examples of these conditions are heart attack, stroke or arrhythmias.

General symptoms of heart disease include a shortness of breath, chest pain, chest tightness, pain in the neck, jaw, upper abdomen or back and numbness throughout your legs and arms. These symptoms can be indicators of other diseases or situational factors; however, it may be possible that if you have many of these symptoms, you could have a heart condition.

There are many ways that you can reduce your likelihood of developing heart disease, from exercising more frequently to changing your diet to a healthier one. Some of the risks that you can control range from quitting smoking to losing weight. There are certain risks that you cannot control when it comes to heart disease, these are factors like aging, gender (men are more likely to suffer from heart disease) and genetics.

How does smoking damage your heart?

You have almost double the chance of experiencing a heart attack if you are a smoking than a non-smoker. The reason for this is the way that smoking damages the lining of your arteries, which leads to a build-up of atheroma (fatty material) in the arteries and narrows them. This can be the cause of a stroke or heart attack.

Additionally, the carbon monoxide from the tobacco smoke can reduce levels of oxygen that is in your blood. When this happens, your heart has to work harder to pump the blood around your body. Nicotine also produces adrenaline which makes your heartbeat faster and raises your blood pressure. Lastly, you may be more likely to experience a blood clot.
