Washington: Medical experts have discovered a new type of heart disease about which it is said that 1 in 3 individuals may be at risk.
According to international news agencies, researchers in the field of cardiology have pointed out an association between cardiovascular diseases and conditions like kidney, metabolic syndrome (type 2 diabetes), liver, and obesity.
While experts say it doesn’t necessarily constitute a new disease, it does warrant a fresh perspective on how these conditions interact with one another.
According to the American Heart Association, in every 1 out of 3 individuals, there are factors that increase the chances of them being affected by this heart disease. The purpose of mentioning cardiovascular disease is to raise awareness about the risks of death from heart disease in at-risk individuals, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
Experts emphasize that individuals in Stage 1 are typically overweight, particularly with excess abdominal fat, or in the early stages of prediabetes. In Stage 2, people often start experiencing high blood pressure and the onset of diseases like type 2 diabetes. At this point, kidney disease may also become possible.
In the third stage, individuals affected by heart disease may not show any outward signs, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or kidney conditions. They could be in the early stages of heart disease or liver issues, and they might use statins.
In summary, this discovery underscores the importance of recognizing and addressing the underlying factors that contribute to these health diseases, especially in those at high risk.
