What is Heart Problems

Heart problems, or cardiovascular diseases, are a broad range of conditions which can involve the heart muscle, valves, coronary arteries and other components of the circulatory system. These conditions may result in decreased blood flow to the heart muscle (ischemia) or valvular dysfunction and lead to arrhythmias and heart failure. Common forms of heart problems include hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF), cardiomyopathy and congenital defects. Y

Causes of Heart Problems

Heart problems can arise from a variety of causes, ranging from modifiable lifestyle factors such as smoking or obesity to non-modifiable risk factors such as genetic predisposition and age. Uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes are two major risk factors for heart disease, as the damage caused by these conditions may limit the efficacy of the heart’s ability to pump.

  • Other risk factors include an unhealthy diet,
  • Lack of physical activity,
  • Stress, excessive alcohol intake, and
  • Certain medications or supplements.

Diat for Heart Problem

A dietitian is an important resource when considering what to eat with a heart problem. People with heart problems should focus on eating nutrient-dense foods that are low in saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol. This includes fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins (such as fish, poultry and beans), nuts, seeds and healthy fats like avocado or olive oil. Eating a diet rich in soluble fiber can also be beneficial for individuals with heart problems as it helps decrease bad cholesterol levels in the blood. Additionally, reducing processed foods will reduce your intake of artificial trans fats. All of these foods should be consumed as part of a balanced diet that includes adequate hydration to maintain healthy weight and overall health.
