October is #SuddenCardiacArrestAwarenessMonth, Let’s Talk Senior Heart Health

Keep Eyes on Heart Health | In this blog, we discuss heart disease, what can cause it, and how to prevent it. We will also provide information about precautions older adults and seniors can take to prevent this serious heart condition.

What is Heart Disease?

The leading cause of death in Americans, Heart Disease is a term used to categorize several types of heart conditions and ailments. Some of these types of heart conditions include heart defects, heart attack or failure, coronary artery disease, or peripheral arterial disease.

What Causes of Heart Disease?

Atherosclerosis is the main cause of most preventable heart diseases. Atherosclerosis occurs when the arteries within the body become narrowed and clogged with fatty plaque and buildup. Lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, obesity, and smoking all contribute to the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries, increasing the chances of heart disease significantly.

What Are Heart Disease Symptoms?

Although each different type of preventable heart condition requires different treatment methods, many heart condition sufferers experience similar symptoms. Chest pain or discomfort is the most common symptom of heart disease, and is described as heaviness, pressure, or pain in the chest. Other symptoms of heart conditions may include heavy sweating or shortness of breath, weakness, dizzy spells, palpitations, or irregular heartbeat.

How To Keey Eyes on Heart Health and Prevent Heart Disease

The good news about Heart Disease is that most conditions are preventable by living a healthy lifestyle. Seniors and older adults can maintain a healthy lifestyle by:

  • Eliminating smoking
  • Regularly seeing a doctor
  • Regularly Exercising
  • Managing stress levels
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Eating a well-balanced, low-sodium diet
  • Limiting alcohol intake
