Every year millions of people die due to heart related problems around the world. Heart-related problems are increasing rapidly even among the youth. Recently, Bigg Boss 13 winner Siddharth Shukla also died due to heart attack. Generally you must have noticed that most cases of heart attack come in the morning or in cold weather. Know here why this happens and what is the reason for heart attack?
common cause of heart attack
The biggest causes of heart attack are high BP, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes and high fat diet. But apart from this, there are some common reasons that people are not aware of, such as migraine, lack of sleep, stress, excessive consumption of coffee, cold weather and morning time etc.
This is why the cases of heart attack increase in the morning
In fact, there are 20 percent more dead muscle cells in the morning than during the day. In such a situation, the heart has to work harder to do its work. At the same time, the blood arteries are constricted and they do not have the ability to eliminate blood clots. Because of this, there are more cases of heart attack in the morning. Apart from this, in the morning, our brain fills the body with hormones, due to which our sleep opens. In such a situation, there is a situation of additional stress on the heart. At the same time, the problem of dehydration increases in the morning after a long night’s sleep. In these situations, the pressure on the heart increases and it has to work harder. In such a situation, many times a condition of heart attack arises.
Reasons for increasing heart attack cases in winter
The reason for the increase in the cases of heart attack in the cold is that the veins contract more and become harder during the cold season. The blood flow in the veins increases to warm and activate them. In such a situation, BP often also increases. High BP often becomes the cause of heart attack. Therefore, those who have heart-related diseases and those who have had a heart attack, they need to be very careful in the cold season.
