Heart attacks increased among youth
In this era, people are having heart attacks at an early age. In the last three years, many such cases have been seen where heart attacks are occurring at the age of 20 to 30 years. In many cases, deaths are occurring on the spot. Heart attack is happening while doing gym or dancing. Such cases are being seen more among the youth. Doctors say that due to bad eating habits and the effect of Covid virus, heart attacks are happening at an early age, but now it has come to light that due to aortic stenosis disease, heart attacks are happening at an early age. This is a dangerous heart disease which causes heart attack and cardiac arrest.
According to the American Heart Association, in the last 10 years, cases of heart attack among youth have increased by about 30 percent as compared to before. This increase is a warning sign, which everyone needs to pay attention to. This is because heart disease is now becoming like an epidemic. In such a situation, it should not be ignored.
Why are youth having heart attacks?
Dr. Vivek Kumar, Principal Director, Department of Cardiac Sciences at Max Super Specialty Hospital, says that the cases of heart attack among the youth have been increasing continuously for the last few years. After the Covid pandemic, the graph of heart diseases has suddenly increased. Aortic stenosis is a major reason for the increase in heart attack cases among youth. Its cases are now being seen among the youth.
This is such a cardiovascular problem, which is called a silent disease. This is because its symptoms are not detected for years and it continues to cause heart disease. This disease first affects the elderly, but in recent years it is also affecting the youth.
What is aortic stenosis?
Dr. Kumar explains that aortic stenosis occurs when the aortic valve of the heart starts shrinking. Due to this, the blood supply from the heart to the body starts getting hampered. Due to this, the heart can suffer a lot of damage. This disease causes heart attack and cardiac arrest.
what are the symptoms
Pain in chest
shortness of breath
how to protect
To prevent any heart disease, it is important that you get your lipid profile tested every three months and also check your BP every month or 15 days. People who already have heart disease in their family or those who consume cigarettes and alcohol excessively should pay special attention to this. If any symptoms of heart disease are visible then consult a doctor.
treatment is easy
Doctors say that if aortic stenosis is detected on time, it can be easily treated. Treatment is done by transcatheter aortic valve implantation. It can also be cured by angioplasty and stenting. If someone has formed clots in the blood, then it can be cured with clot-buster medicines.
