Hi friends, I hope you all are well. In this post I am going to tell you about some risk factors for devolving heart deases.
Age
There are some risk factors
Aging increases your risk of damaged and narrowed arteries and weakened or thickened heart muscle.
Family History
A family history of heart disease increases your risk of coronary artery disease, especially if a parent developed it at an early age (before age 55 for a male relative, such as your brother or father, and 65 for a female relative, such as your mother or sister).
Smoking
Nicotine constricts your blood vessels, and carbon monoxide can damage their inner lining, making them more susceptible to atherosclerosis.
Poor diet
A diet that's high in fat, salt, sugar and cholesterol can contribute to the development of heart disease.
High blood pressure
Uncontrolled high blood pressure can result in hardening and thickening of your arteries, narrowing the vessels through which blood flows.
High blood cholesterol levels
High levels of cholesterol in your blood can increase the risk of formation of plaques and atherosclerosis.
