We will tell you more about how to take care of heart disease and what are the common ways to take care of heart disease.
General care for Heart Disease
1. Weight control
Studies have shown that a 10% increase in body weight and an average increase in cholesterol of 18.5 increases the risk of coronary heart disease by 38%; a 20% increase in body weight increases the risk of coronary heart disease by 86%, and the prevalence of coronary heart disease in hypertensive patients with diabetes is 1 times higher than in hypertensive patients without diabetes.
2. Quit smoking
Nicotine in tobacco can make the heart beat faster, increase blood pressure (excessive smoking can also make blood pressure drop), increased oxygen consumption of the heart, vascular spasm, abnormal blood flow and increased adhesion of platelets. These adverse effects make the incidence of coronary heart disease in smoking men aged 30-49 three times higher than in nonsmokers, and smoking is also an important cause of angina attacks and sudden death.
3. Quit drinking
An experiment by American scientists confirmed that ethanol has a toxic effect on the heart. Excessive ethanol intake can reduce the contractility of the heart muscle. For people suffering from heart disease, alcohol abuse will not only increase the burden on the heart, and even lead to arrhythmia, and affect fat metabolism, and promote the formation of atherosclerosis.
4. Improve the living environment
Serious pollution and noise intensity of the place may induce heart disease. Therefore, improve the living environment, expand the green area, reduce the noise and prevent various kinds of pollution.
5. Avoid crowding
Avoid going to places where people are crowded. Whether it is viral myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy, coronary heart disease or wind heart disease, they are all related to viral infections, and even heart failure is often caused by acute exacerbation due to upper respiratory tract infection.
Therefore, we should pay attention to avoid going to crowded places, especially in the flu season, to avoid infection.
6. Reasonable diet
There should be a reasonable diet arrangement. Hyperlipidemia, unbalanced diet, diabetes and obesity are all related to dietary nutrition, so the nutritional factor is very important from the perspective of heart disease prevention and treatment. In principle, we should achieve “three low”, namely: low calorie, low fat and low cholesterol.
7. Moderate exercise
Actively participate in moderate physical activity. Maintaining regular and appropriate exercise is conducive to enhancing heart function and promoting normal body metabolism, especially for promoting fat metabolism and preventing the occurrence of atherosclerosis. For heart disease patients, according to the function of the heart and physical strength, engaging in an appropriate amount of physical activity can help improve blood circulation, enhance resistance, improve the function of all organs of the body, and prevent thrombosis. However, it is necessary to avoid too strenuous activities, and the amount of activities should be increased gradually in order not to cause symptoms.
8. Regular life
Develop healthy living habits. Have a regular life, be happy, avoid emotional excitement and overexertion.
