Enlargement And Thickening Of The Left Ventricle And Heart Failure With The Weight Gain
A study shows an increased risk of enlargement and thickening of the left ventricle of the heart and reduced ability of the heart in pumping blood (a heart failure) with as little as five percent of weight gain. Even the heart of the normal weight individual will be damaged with the weight gain over a period of time. But the researchers say the reduction to the heart damage and a decrease in the thickness of the heart muscle (reduced risk of heart failure) with a few pounds of weight loss.
The researchers also found that the risk of structural changes to the heart and reduced function of the heart even after adjustment for known risk factors that affect the function of the heart such as tobacco use, alcohol consumption, high blood sugar (glucose) levels (type 2 diabetes. T2D) and high blood pressure (or hypertension. BP).
The researchers have conducted a study on 1,262 men and women with an average age of 44 years but without any high-risk factor for heart disease. The researchers took MRI of the heart and a number of body fat measurements at the beginning and after seven years.
Authors say that the accumulation of the fat around the organs and in the belly area may produce hormones which cause the body inflammation and heart damage. The study suggests that individuals with a high risk of heart diseases should try to lose weight to lower the risk of heart diseases. No weight gain in the absence of weight loss is a preventive strategy for heart diseases.
The lead author of the study was Dr. Ian Neeland, a cardiologist and Assistant Professor of internal medicine, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, United States. The study was published on July 19, 2017, in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Title of the article was "Dynamic Relation of Changes in Weight and Indices of Fat Distribution With Cardiac Structure and Function: The Dallas Heart Study."
Sudden Cold Weather (Lower Temperature) Can Increase A Risk Of Death From Heart Failure
A study shows an association between the risk of hospitalization and even death with a change in cold weather (lower temperature). The study shows a seven percent increase in the risk of death from heart failure with a drop of ten degrees in temperature over a period of seven days. The authors say that the preventive steps should be taken to protect patients diagnosed with heart failure from sudden changes in temperature as the weather may impact the health of a heart patient. The study shows that the barometric pressure before a storm may cause arthritis pain, sleep apnea and a headache.
The FDA Said That The Consumption Of Soybeans Can Reduce Heart Disease.
A new report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggests a lower risk of coronary heart disease with the consumption of soybean oil. The report also says that omega-3 fatty acids present in soybean oil can lower the levels of LDL or "bad" cholesterol.
