Cause of Heart Disease

The cause of heart disease results simply from the narrowing of the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart. The heart needs oxygen and nutrients which are carried to the heart and away from the heart through our arteries. When these arteries become narrowed or clogged by fat deposits and cholesterol and cannot give our heart the oxygen it needs it can lead to coronary heart disease. When a portion of the heart muscle after awhile is not receiving this much needed oxygen and nutrients that part of the heart will die resulting in a heart attack. Some patients do in fact have angina pain in their chest prior to having a heart attack.

Common causes of Heart Disease

  • Cholesterol : Cholesterol is used to create hormones, bile acids, and vitamin D. The reason it is a cause of heart disease is that the body only needs a small amount of cholesterol, but many diets have cholesterol levels sky high. When a person has too much cholesterol it is deposited in the arteries. Cholesterol is the cause of heart disease when it is deposited in the coronary arteries and begins to narrow and restrict blood flow to the heart.

  • Heredity : Another cause of heart disease can be heredity. If you are talking about Coronary heart disease, the most common heart disease, it does run in families.

  • Tobacco Use : Is a cause of heart disease just like cholesterol that can be prevented. Many people believe that chewing tobacco or using a pipe is not a problem, but in fact all types of tobacco whether chewed or smoked raises the chances of heart disease.

  • High Blood Pressure and Diabetes: Another cause of heart disease is hypertension or high blood pressure. You need to control your blood pressure along with your blood sugar level as diabetes is another cause of heart disease. We cannot leave out a cause of heart disease that can prevented with only a short 30 minute brisk walk and that is lack of regular exercise. The exercise does not need to be extreme to aid your body in preventing heart disease.

The best way to prevent heart disease is to learn the cause of heart disease and change your lifestyle according, especially if heart disease runs in your family.
