The Dangers Obesity Poses to Your Heart

Well OVER Weight

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, as approximately one in three Americans is severely overweight. Excessive weight comes with a host of health problems, including an increased risk for sleep apnea, type-2 diabetes, and stroke. Obesity is also a considerable factor in the occurrence of heart disease. Heart disease is already the leading cause of death in this country, and obesity is in large part to blame for its prominence. The following cardiovascular conditions help explain obesity’s impact on the heart.

High Blood Pressure
Several factors may produce high blood pressure, including anxiety and genetics. However, obesity constitutes a significant cause of hypertension, which can put considerable stress on the arteries supplying blood to body. When left untreated, high blood pressure can wreak havoc on the cardiovascular system and weaken the arterial walls. It can also leave those suffering from it with a higher risk of heart attack and heart failure.

Elevated Cholesterol Levels
Cholesterol is a type of fat that the body requires to carry out its processes. Virtually every cell is coated in cholesterol, but when left unchecked, high cholesterol levels can lead to heart disease. Elevated cholesterol often results from the excessive consumption of saturated fats, which can accumulate in blood vessels. As these fats build in the bloodstream, it leaves the person suffering from cholesterol vulnerable to blockages that may cause a heart attack. 

Obstructed Cardiology Treatment
Excessive weight can obstruct a heart doctor’s ability to perform diagnostic testing to determine the nature of a patient’s heart problems. Under some circumstances, it may be challenging to even gauge a person’s heart rhythm because their weight prevents access to the heart. When this occurs, it becomes all the more difficult to accurately diagnose and treat potentially life-threatening heart conditions. 

Don’t let obesity compromise your heart health. Call Cardiac Solutions today at (623) 876-8816 to schedule a consultation with a cardiologist at our Phoenix heart clinic. We can help you get on the path to having a healthy weight and a strong heart.

Chest Pain vs. Heartburn

Knowing the cause of your chest discomfort may end up saving your life. This video explains the signs that differentiate heartburn pain from that of a heart attack.

Heartburn is an inconvenient yet relatively harmless condition. Most individuals who suffer heartburn will feel a burning sensation in the chest that can extend to the throat. The symptoms of a heart attack typically entail a sudden pain in the chest and feeling of constriction. This pain may radiate into the jaw, shoulders, and arms. Those who suffer a heart attack may also become dizzy or lightheaded. If you have any doubts as to whether your signs indicate heartburn or heart attack, immediately contact a heart center for help.

Cardiac Solutions offers preventative and treatment care for patients in the greater Phoenix region. Don’t wait for a heart attack to permanently impact your life. Call our heart clinic today at (623) 876-8816 to make an appointment with a cardiologist for your heart health.
