Types of Heart Disease
Different heart diseases have different causes, symptoms, and treatment options. Medicines, changes in lifestyle, and diet can deliver some improvements. Some people also have to undergo a surgery make the heart work at its best again. Below some notable heart diseases are outlined.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
This is the most common heart illness and it happens when blockages occur in coronary arteries (the vessels that supply blood to your heart). Due to this reason, there is a decrease in the flow of blood to the heart muscles. As a result, the heart muscles stop getting enough supply of oxygen.
Atherosclerosis, which is a condition arising from the hardening of the arteries, usually causes it. This disease can cause angina (pain in the chest) which often leads to a heart attack. The following factors increase the risk of coronary artery disease:
- Being inactive
- High blood pressure
- The risk rises as age advances
- The family history of coronary heart disease
- Low levels of good cholesterol or high levels of bad cholesterol
When the heart shows irregular beating pattern, the condition is known as heart arrhythmias. This disease is often caused by another heart illness but it may also happen on its own. Contact us to learn more about reversing heart disease or to detect heart disease.
When the heart does not pump blood as needed by the body, heart failure occurs. Coronary artery disease usually causes this disease. Having the following diseases increases the risk of heart failure:
- Thyroid disease
- High blood pressure
- And certain other conditions
- Heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy)
Heart Valve Disease
The human heart has four valves that close and open all the time to direct the flow of blood between the four chambers of the heart, the blood vessels, and the lungs. The opening and closing functions of a heart valve can be affected by a defect.
The blood can leak or blood flow could be blocked when that happens. Problems such as high blood pressure, rheumatic fever, coronary artery disease, congenital heart disease, or a heart attack can cause any heart valve defect.
The heart valves diseases include the following:
- Rheumatic heart disease
The sac that surrounds your heart (pericardium) often suffers from diseases which are known as pericardial disease. Pericarditis (inflammation) is a famous pericardium disease. An infection, injury, or inflammatory disease can cause it.
Cardiomyopathy (Heart Muscle Disease)
The myocardium or heart muscle can suffer from a disease known as cardiomyopathy. It gets stiff, stretched, or thickened in this condition. Your heart may get too weak to pump well. Viral infections, genetic heart conditions, and reactions to certain drugs often cause it. In some cases, cardiomyopathy is caused by chemotherapy.
Congenital Heart Disease
While a child is developing in the womb of the mother, heart disease can occur and it will be termed as a congenital heart disease. If a congenital heart disease exists at the time of birth, it can cause problems right after death. Among the most common congenital heart problems are septal defects.
