Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a broad term used to describe disorders that can affect the heart (cardio) and/or the body’s system of blood vessels (vascular). The most common use of the term CVD refers to diseases associated with atherosclerosis (a build up of fatty deposits in the arteries). This causes the blood vessels to become narrower and less flexible.
Some classifications of CVD include:
Coronary heart disease (CHD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) – disease of the blood vessels supplying the heart that can lead to:
- Angina – intense chest pain
- Heart attack
- Congestive heart failure
Cerebrovascular disease – disease of the blood vessels supplying the brain that can lead to:
- Transient ischemic attacks (TIA) or “mini-strokes”
Peripheral vascular disease – disease of the blood vessels supplying the arms and legs that can lead to:
- Claudication – obstructed blood flow in the arteries which causes pain
- Gangrene – death of the tissues due to poor circulation
- Aneurysms – (bulges or enlargements) in blood vessels
Cardiovascular diseases are among the most dangerous a person can face. They are also among the most prevalent. This set of diseases is, in fact, the number one killer in the United States, ahead of cancer, accidents and AIDS.
Cardiovascular disease is not just limited to those over age 65. Of the almost one million Americans killed in a year by cardiovascular disease, 150,000 of those are under the age of 65. Cardiovascular disease is not just for men, either. Post-menopausal women are in as much danger as men of suffering high blood pressure, strokes or heart attacks.
Risk Factors for CVD
Preventable or treatable risks include: high blood pressure, weight, high cholesterol levels, diabetes, physical inactivity, smoking, alcohol consumption and stress.
Unpreventable risks include: a family member with heart disease, a previous heart attack, increasing age, gender and race. The more risk factors you have, the more likely you are to develop cardiovascular disease. By controlling as many risk factors as possible, through lifestyle changes and/or medications, you can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
