Effective Tips To Avoid From Heart Disease And Stroke

Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Patients with cardiovascular disease (heart and blood vessel disease of the brain) continues to increase. Begin to implement the '80 tips? is an easy to remember tips to avoid blood vessels and heart disease early.

Examples of blood vessel disorder of sudden cardiac arrest and coronary heart disease. While examples of cerebrovascular disorder is stroke.

The second risk factor for this disease are older age, hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, smoking and high blood cholesterol levels.

To avoid these risks apply tips '80? early on, namely:

1.Tekanan diastolic blood pressure in the 80 mmHg
Normal blood pressure is if you have a systolic (upper limit when the heart contractions) 120 mmHg and diastolic (the lower limit when the heart relaxes) 80 mmHg or often called a 120/80 mmHg.

A person suffering from hypertension when blood pressure above 140/90 mmHg. Number 90 is the diastolic blood pressure. Diastolic blood pressure above 90 mmHg is consistently associated with increased mortality from heart disease and stroke.

To always remember the 80's to remind diastolic heart condition normal. Reduction of salt intake, not smoking and the consumption of more fruits and vegetables is shown to improve high blood pressure.

2. Blood sugar levels around the 80 mg / dL
Normal blood sugar levels before meals in kiasaran 80-120 mg / dl after a day filled with food and 100-140 mg / dl.

Sugar levels above 140 mm / dL during fasting is not to be suspected as a diabetes mellitus. Diabetes was significantly associated with premature death from vascular disease. Complications of diabetes on the eyes, kidneys, and nerves significantly to the burden of illness is very severe. Diabetes increases the risk of stroke up to 3 times.

For that maintain blood sugar levels in the 80 mg / dL to prevent the formation of plaque on artery walls.

3. Levels of bad cholesterol or LDL in the 80 mg / dL
Lipid profiles are determined by the levels of blood cholesterol, LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol), HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol), triglycerides and Lp (a). Cholesterol formed in the body, which consists of two main parts: LDL cholesterol (Low Density Lipoproteins) and HDL cholesterol (High Density Lipoproteins).

Total cholesterol is considered normal if less than 200 mg / dl, and high if above 239 mg / dl. The amount of LDL (bad) must be below 150 mg / dl. The amount of HDL (good) should be above 35 mg / dl. The amount of triglyceride levels should be below 200 mg / dl. It is also not less important is the ratio of LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol less than 3.5.

The focus is how to keep the bad cholesterol is not increased. Because LDL cholesterol carries cholesterol from the liver into the cell. The number of high LDL cholesterol will lead to accumulation of cholesterol in the cell.

If that's the case will spur the emergence of the process of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Atherosclerotic process will lead to complications in target organs (heart, brain, and kidneys). The process of the brain will increase the risk of stroke.

In general, a person's LDL cholesterol target is below 130 mg / dl. In the case of stroke or coronary heart disease, the target LDL cholesterol is below 100 mg / dl.

Research shows that the decrease in LDL levels below 100 mg / dl significantly reduced the risk of stroke and heart disease. By achieving target LDL cholesterol 80 mg / dl, the body will be healthy.

LDL cholesterol can be lowered with lifestyle changes and therapy farmaka. Lifestyle changes are recommended to reduce saturated fat consumption, exercise regularly, lose excess weight and stop smoking.

4. HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) to nearly 80 mg / dl
As mentioned in number 3, number of good cholesterol or HDL (High Density Lipoproteins / HDL) should be above 35 mg / dl. The higher the good cholesterol, the better for the body. With numbers approaching HDL 80 mg / dl is a great achievement because it is not easy to get good cholesterol.

HDL cholesterol takes cholesterol from cells to the liver. Low HDL levels are consistently dihubungakn with an increased risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. Low levels of HDL atherogenik spur the emergence process (the formation of plaque in arteries).

Research shows that HDL levels of less than 40 mg / dl significantly increase the risk of stroke up to 2-fold. HDL cholesterol can be improved by regular exercise.

5. Keep the abdominal circumference of less than 80 cm for women and approximately 90 cm for men
Excess abdominal circumference (on race Asia:> 90 cm in men and> 80 cm in women) significantly increased the risk of stroke up to 2-fold.

Obesity is associated with decreased insulin sensitivity that leads to diabetes mellitus, elevated levels of blood fats (triglycerides and cholesterol), and increased blood pressure.

Regular exercise, balanced diet, consumption of fruits and vegetables shown to effectively lower abdominal circumference.

6. Keep your cigarettes from a minimum of 80 feet
Size of 80 meters should not be taken literally, but understood to always avoid smoking. Smoking is a risk factor for stroke and heart disease are the most consistent.

Cigarette spur hardening of the arteries. The formation of plaque on blood vessel walls are catalyzed by a cigarette. Smoking has many harmful active substances. Passive smoking is also no less dangerous.

Research shows also that passive smokers have a 2-fold risk for stroke. Stop smoking and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Recently the world stroke organization (World Stroke Organization) announced the facts about stroke as follows:

A. Every 1 in 5 women and 1 in 6 men will have a stroke during his life. Every two seconds, someone in the world affected by stroke.
2. Every 6 seconds someone dies of a stroke
3. Every 6 seconds, the quality of life will be changed because of a physical disability that persisted.

The numbers are staggering and requires action to address them. One in every six people will be affected by a stroke in his life, might be about you or people you care about.

However, stroke is preventable and treatable. Precautions are taken to cope with various risk factors for stroke and coronary heart disease. Hopefully these 80 tips can help you.
