Arteriosclerosis is a persistent systemic disease that is the main cause of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. It is understood that hospital outpatient clinics often receive young people around the age of 30, or even younger patients. Cardiovascular disease is no longer the patent of the elderly, which makes people have to be vigilant.
Cardiovascular diseases are becoming increasingly youthful
The "White Paper on Cardiovascular Health for Middle and Young People in China" released by the National Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease Alliance indicates that in recent years, there has been a significant trend towards younger age groups in China with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The proportion of people aged 20-29 who suffer from or are at high risk has increased to 15.3%, and the treatment status of young and middle-aged people who suffer from illness or high risk is not ideal, with 64.4% of people not receiving medical treatment.
The industry report also analyzed multiple factors such as work pressure, anxiety, fatigue, and sleep status among workplace workers.
Young people often consume high fat, high calorie, and high sugar foods, especially foreign fast food, which is closely related to the rejuvenation of arteriosclerosis. The lipid characteristics produced by these high fat and high calorie foods are prone to deposition or attachment to the blood vessel wall, causing the vessel wall to ulcerate and harden, slow blood flow or local blockage of blood vessels, leading to insufficient blood supply to the heart and brain.
Therefore, young people with a family history of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and bad habits such as smoking and wine making should be checked as soon as possible to see if they have atherosclerosis. This disease is not easy to pay attention to, but it can completely or partially disappear after reasonable treatment.
Preventing arteriosclerosis is like fighting a blood vessel defense battle
Arteriosclerosis is completely asymptomatic before it causes obvious symptoms, that is, before it develops to a certain extent, and one cannot feel anything! If you use an arteriosclerosis index measuring instrument and regularly detect abnormalities in the arteriosclerosis index, you need to pay attention to your vascular health!
Because the new generation of young people are under great pressure from work and study, long-term mental stress will also cause blood pressure to rise, and promote and intensify atherosclerosis. Timely psychological adjustment to reduce mental stress, such as venting, transfer, and compensation methods, are all good methods to maintain psychological balance and reduce mental stress.
If you discover that your arteries are hardening, don't be afraid and don't be negative. In recent years, research has shown that changing an unreasonable lifestyle can reduce coronary artery plaques. So, in addition to taking medication, the key to preventing arteriosclerosis lies in oneself and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits.
