ARE YOU A HEART SCAN CANDIDATE > Heart Disease

Heart Disease

  • Heart disease is the world’s biggest killer
  • The first symptom of heart disease is often heart attack or sudden death
  • Around 238,000 people are estimated to die from heart disease annually in the
    UK
  • Approximately 1/5 deaths in men and 1/6 deaths in women can be attributed to heart disease
  • If heart disease is diagnosed at the earliest possible stages, before symptoms develop, it can be successfully treated and even reversed

  • If you have any of the major risk factors you could be at risk of a heart attack and may benefit from Heart-Scan (see below).

 

Major Risk Factors for Heart Disease

   - Smoking
   - Diet
   - Lack of physical activity
   - Alcohol excess
   - High blood pressure (Hypertension)
   - High blood cholesterol
     (hyperlepideamia)
   - Being overweight, obesity
   - Diabetes (an estimated 80%
     diabetics eventually die from heart
     disease)
   - Stress
   - Genetic Factors (Family history and
     ethnicity, gender)
   - Age


Coronary Calcium

  • Coronary calcification is the depositing of calcium in the arteries of the heart

  • When these plaques accumulate the arteries become blocked

  • The muscles of the heart no longer receive adequate amounts of oxygen

  • This results in heart attack
