5 things that patients with coronary heart disease are most taboo about

19 Nov 2023

With the fast pace and high pressure of modern life, coronary heart disease has become a relatively common cardiovascular disease. Many people inadvertently fall into the risk factors of coronary heart disease, and some people are even unaware of the disease after it occurs. 

1. The five most feared things about coronary heart disease

Smoking is the leading risk factor for coronary heart disease. Harmful substances such as nicotine in tobacco can damage the endothelium of blood vessels, leading to atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Smoking also accelerates the heartbeat, increases the burden on the heart, and aggravates the condition.

Moderate drinking has cardiovascular benefits, but long-term heavy drinking can harm heart health. Alcohol will stimulate the heart, speed up the heartbeat, increase the burden on the heart, lead to myocardial hypoxia, and then cause coronary heart disease.

Staying up late will cause the body to secrete hormones such as adrenaline, which will speed up the heartbeat, increase blood pressure, and increase the burden on the heart. Staying up late for a long time will destroy the body's biological clock, put the body in a sub-healthy state, and increase the risk of coronary heart disease.

Being in a depressed and tense emotional state for a long time can easily cause the body to secrete too many hormones such as adrenaline, which will speed up the heartbeat, increase blood pressure, and increase the burden on the heart. In addition, suppressing emotions can lead to insomnia, anxiety and other problems, further affecting heart health.

Foods high in fat, cholesterol, and sugar can increase cholesterol levels in the blood, leading to atherosclerosis, which in turn can lead to coronary heart disease. Unhealthy eating habits such as irregular eating and overeating will also increase the burden on the heart and aggravate the condition.

2. Understand coronary heart disease

Coronary heart disease, abbreviated as coronary atherosclerotic heart disease, refers to heart disease caused by atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries causing stenosis or occlusion of the official lumen, resulting in myocardial ischemia, hypoxia, or necrosis. The main symptoms of coronary heart disease include chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, etc., which may lead to myocardial infarction in severe cases. Risk factors for coronary heart disease include smoking, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, etc.

3. The harm of coronary heart disease to the body and mind

Patients with coronary heart disease often face greater psychological pressure and worry about the development and worsening of the disease. This psychological pressure may lead to psychological problems such as anxiety and depression, which further affects the patient's physical health and quality of life.

Coronary heart disease can have a serious impact on a patient's physical health. Patients with mild illness may develop symptoms such as angina, while patients with severe illness may develop life-threatening complications such as myocardial infarction. In addition, coronary heart disease may also cause other cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure and arrhythmia.

4. Methods to prevent coronary heart disease

To prevent coronary heart disease, we must first maintain healthy eating habits. It is recommended to eat more fiber-rich vegetables, fruits and whole grains, and reduce the intake of high-fat, high-cholesterol and high-sugar foods. At the same time, maintain a regular diet and avoid overeating.

Moderate exercise can help lower blood lipid levels and improve cardiovascular function. It is recommended to do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per week, such as brisk walking, cycling, or swimming. In addition, strength training can also help improve the health of your cardiovascular system.

Staying up late and stress are one of the important factors leading to coronary heart disease. To prevent coronary heart disease, you should try to maintain a regular schedule and ensure adequate sleep and rest time. At the same time, you must learn to regulate your emotions to avoid being in a state of depression and tension for a long time.

If you have high-risk factors for coronary heart disease or have symptoms suspected of coronary heart disease, you should consult a doctor as soon as possible and receive appropriate examination and treatment. The doctor will develop appropriate treatment and medication plans based on your specific situation to help you control your condition and prevent complications. At the same time, you must abide by the doctor's instructions and take the medicine on time, and do not change the dosage or stop the medicine at will.
