These Bad Habits Can Accelerate Atherosclerosis
In recent years, the incidence of atherosclerosis has been rising, and it has become the biggest "killer" that endangers the health of middle-aged and elderly people. Patients in serious situations may even die suddenly because of risk accidents, and the consequences are very terrible. Every one of us should take precautions in our daily life so as to avoid the silent "killer" approaching us. What is arteriosclerosis? What are the causes of atherosclerosis? Next let's have a detailed understanding!
What is arteriosclerosis?
In fact, atherosclerosis is a non-inflammatory disease, which is a kind of vascular disease that will gradually appear with the growth of age. Generally speaking, it will occur in adolescence, but it will suddenly accelerate in middle-aged and old age, and gradually begin to appear symptoms.
Influenced by atherosclerosis, the arterial wall of patients will continue to harden and thicken, and eventually lose elasticity, and the lumen will become narrow, so patients will suffer from systemic or local insufficiency of blood supply, and eventually have a series of risk damage.
What are the causes of atherosclerosis?
(1) Bad eating habits
The more saturated fatty acids we normally consume, the higher the cholesterol concentration in the blood, so the more easily these cholesterols are deposited on the inner wall of the arteries, which eventually leads to the loss of elasticity of the vascular wall, or the narrowing of the lumen, leading to ischemia.
(2) Bad living habits
Smoking, drinking, staying up late and so on may damage the inner wall of blood vessels, which may cause a large amount of cholesterol deposited on the inner wall of blood vessels, and ultimately lead to the risk of atherosclerosis. In addition, people who overeat and do not exercise for a long time are more likely to suffer from atherosclerosis.
(3) The impact of a large number of diseases
In fact, there are many diseases that can damage the arterial wall, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and other diseases. They will make the inner wall of blood vessels damaged, and eventually will make patients with atherosclerosis.
Although atherosclerosis has become a high incidence disease in clinical practice, as long as the relevant preventive measures are taken, the harm can be reduced. For more information on Cardiovascular Disease, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
