What Is Cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) can be referred to as heart disease.

This term encompasses a range of different conditions that can all affect your heart and blood vessels (the cardiovascular system)

Many diseases can be listed under this term:

  • This includes physical or structural abnormalities of the heart including congenital defects and heart valve problems
  • Conduction problems of the heart such as abnormal heart rhythms- arrhythmias or atrial fibrillation
  • Diseases of the blood vessels such as atherosclerosis are also part of cardiovascular disease
  • High blood pressure may even be considered under this term, as it is mostly a disease of the heart and blood vessels.
  • Ischaemic Heart Disease (also known as Coronary Artery Disease) is a spectrum of diseases ranging from cardiac chest pain (angina) to myocardial infarction (heart attacks). This also falls under CVD.
  • Different tests are used to diagnose CVD. These include ECGs (Electrocardiograms) where leads are placed on the chest, and the electrical conduction of the heart is measured. This is helpful to diagnose arrhythmias, and features of IHD.
  • A sonar done on the heart is called an echocardiogram. With this test, the heart’s function can be assessed as well as the valves and ventricles visualised. Cardiac defects can also be seen.
  • An MIBI scan can be performed to assess how well the heart’s muscle is functioning and if the blood supply is sufficient (myocardial perfusion).

What Is Skin care

  • Skin care is mutliple activities carried on to ensure healthy looking skin devoid of any diseases and deformities.

What Is Cataract

In cataract, the natural lens of the eye (which lies behind pupil and iris) gets clouded. The lens is part of the eye, which helps to focus an image or light on the retina. In a normal eye, light passes through the transparent lens to the retina, where the light gets changed into nerve signals, which are sent to the brain. In order to receive a sharp image by the retina, the lens must be clear. If there is a cataract, the image formed is blurred. A cataract develops over the long period of time. The best way is to wait and watch, till it develops fully. Surgery is the most common treatment of cataract.

It occurs mostly in people above 40 years of age and is a main cause of blindness worldwide. 

Symptoms Treated With ASTAGOLD CAPSULE

What Are The Symptoms Of Cardiovascular disease

The symptoms of CVD depend on the condition affecting the cardiovascular system.

Physical or Structural Abnormalities:

  • Valve impairment may present with abnormal heart rhythms, chest pain (angina), dizziness or syncope (fainting/loss of consciousness).
  • Congenital or structural abnormalities will usually present soon after birth. Symptoms include fatigue, bluish discolouration of skin and lips, and failure to thrive (poor weight gain despite adequate caloric intake).
  • A dilated or enlarged heart in cardiomyopathy of cardiac failure may present with swelling of the legs, shortness of breath on exertion, difficulty breathing when lying down and getting tired quickly.
  • Rhythm impairments will usually present with an abnormal heart beat, a feeling that the heart is “racing” in the chest (tachycardia), or an acute awareness of the heart beating quite prominently in the chest (palpitations). Occasional rhythm impairments may cause chest pain or dizziness.
  • Ischaemic Heart Disease (IHD) typical present with chest pain. Chest pain originating from the heart is angina. Stable angina is chest pain that occurs during exercise and typically goes away within 10-20 minutes of resting.
  • Unstable angina is chest pain that presents at rest and lasts more than 20minutes. This may be suggestive of a high risk of myocardial infarction.

What Are The Symptoms Of Cataract

  • Blurry, foggy or cloudy vision.
  • Near-sightedness (especially among older people).
  • Problems with glares during the day, during driving at night.
  • Glasses or contact lenses not working properly.
  • Change in the way you see colors.
  • Double vision (in affected eye).

Causes of diseases where ASTAGOLD CAPSULE is used

What Are The Causes Of Cardiovascular disease

Atherosclerosis is the underlying cause of cardiovascular diseases such as IHD. Atherosclerosis is a hardening of the lining of blood vessels (called the endothelium). Smoking, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, being overweight and a diet high in fatty acids are contributing causes of atherosclerosis.

Abnormal heart rhythms can be caused by genetic heart defects, IHD, some medications, electrolytes abnormalities (such as potassium or magnesium), emotional or physical stress or excessive use of caffeine or alcohol. Electrical conduction abnormalities can cause arrhythmias. These can be born defects or can develop over time.

The cause of cardiomyopathy, a thickening or enlarging of the heart muscle, may be a congenital condition. High blood pressure or hardening of blood vessels may also contribute to dilatation of the heart.

Valve disease can be congenital, due to infections such as rheumatic fever or disorders affecting the body’s connective tissue.

What Are The Causes Of Cataract

The lens in the eye is made mostly from water and protein. A cataract occurs when the lumps of protein start accumulating and clouding the lens. Some f the causes of cataract are:

  • Age- related.
  • Injury to the eye can also cause cataract.
  • Congenital cataracts, which may be caused due to poor development in the womb, infection or injury during pregnancy. Such children are born with the cataract.
  • Certain diseases like diabetes.
  • Exposure to radiation, ultra violet rays, taking medicines like corticosteroids or diuretics.

It is important to manage stress well when suffering from any heart condition. Mindfulness, meditation and relaxation techniques, may be necessary. Consider changing your work environment if this is your largest stressor.

The heavier your weight, the greater your risk for cardiovascular disease. Body Mass Index (BMI) is a score calculated based on your weight and height. A BMI of 21-25 is considered healthy. Above 25 your risk for CVD increases. If you suffer from CVD, weight loss is of great importance.
