In the meantime, let us get into the discussion of our topic (obesity in atrial fibrillation and respiratory diseases).

Protracted overweight complication: Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is caused by an abnormal electrical system in the heart, which makes the upper chambers of the heart beat in a rapid and disorganized way. In some cases, the exact cause of atrial fibrillation is unknown, but conditions that affect the health of the heart, along with older age, are some of the known risk factors which may include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart valve problems
  • Heart failure

The consequences of being obese is that, your heart may be damaged in the process leading to atrial fibrillation. This is likely to trigger pressure to build up in the blood vessels of the lungs. The implication of this is that pressure will be building up on the right side of the heart a factor that is always triggered by atrial. Besides that fact, it is equally important to remember that obesity also exacts pressure on your neck when sleeping. This compresses the neck and frustrates breathing a condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes oxygen in the blood to dip down to dangerous levels, and that may cause functional and structural changes in the heart that trigger atrial fibrillation. All these are triggered by poor weight management and that is why doctor Akoury is working round the clock into ensuring that any protracted overweight complication is addressed in good time and does not get out of hand.

Heart protection if struggling with diabetes

Heart protection

Heart protection if struggling with diabetes can seriously be hindered if you don’t engage in physical activities

Heart protection if struggling with diabetes: Proper blood sugar control

For effective heart protection, experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury says that it is important that if you have diabetes, then controlling your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels should be prioritized to help reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. To do this you can chose to:

  • To more physical activity
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Control your weight, and
  • Stop up smoking.

If you are diagnosed with diabetes, you may also need to take a cholesterol-lowering medicine such as statins to help protect your heart.

Family history

If you have a family history of cardiovascular disease, you have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease, angina, heart attack, heart failure and stroke. Ideally you will be considered to have a family history of cardiovascular disease if:

  • Your father or brother was under the age of 55 when they were diagnosed with cardiovascular disease or
  • Your mother or sister was under the age of 65 when they were diagnosed with cardiovascular disease.

Doctor Akoury says that if you have family history of cardiovascular disease, it will be very important that you consult with your doctor in good time for professional evaluation which may include checking on your blood pressure and cholesterol.

Heart protection if struggling with diabetes: How does family history affect me?

Genes can pass on the risk of cardiovascular disease, and they can also be responsible for passing on other conditions such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels. There’s no single gene that increases your risk of getting heart disease. It’s likely that several genes are responsible. Lifestyle habits, such as smoking or poor diet passed on from one generation to the next can also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Heart protection if struggling with diabetes: Can I do anything about my family history?

This is very important but unfortunately there is nothing you can do about your family history. Having a family history of cardiovascular disease is sometimes called a ‘non-modifiable’ risk factor meaning that it’s a risk factor that you can’t change. However, whilst you can’t change your family’s background, you can choose your lifestyle.  So even if you have a family history, you can reduce your risk of getting cardiovascular disease by controlling other risk factors by:

  • Being physically active
  • Eating well
  • Keeping to a healthy weight and body shape
  • Not smoking
  • Managing high blood pressure
  • Managing high cholesterol, and
  • Controlling diabetes, if you have it.

Finally your risk of developing cardiovascular disease also depends on other things including your age. According to the several research findings, it has been established that the older you are, the more likely you are to develop cardiovascular disease. Therefore it is advisable that you be on top of everything when it comes to protecting your health. Talking to the experts is one way of being in the know. I would want to beseech you to call the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center and schedule for an appointment with doctor Dalal Akoury for a comprehensive review of your health and treatment where is applicable.
