The WHO determined in 2,000 that the heart would have its world day.

Beyond the symbolic value of a day like this, every day is special to take care of this organ.

It should not be forgotten that heart-related diseases are the deadliest ones. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic puts patients with cardiovascular disease more at risk of developing more severe forms of this condition. In addition, as with other diseases, the fear of a possible contagion make them shun the medical care centers, and therefore they do not properly monitor their pathology.

The recommendations shared by doctors to prevent possible heart problems are collected by the Spanish Heart Foundation on these simple tips:

  • Try to eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day; They can be fresh, frozen, canned or dehydrated.
  • Try to limit the consumption of processed and packaged foods as they are often high in salt, sugar and fat.
  • Try to get at least 30 minutes of moderate or vigorous physical activity 5 times a week.
  • Playing, walking, housework, dancing,… all activities count.
  • It is one of the most important decisions to improve the health of your heart.
  • Quitting smoking (or not starting smoking) improves your health and that of those around you.

In this link you will find these and other tips to take care of this precious organ.

Happy World Heart Day 2020

Main diseases that affect the heart

There are many diseases or conditions of the heart, although the most common are:

  • Heart attack or myocardial infarction: caused by the narrowing of the blood vessels that are responsible for carrying blood to the heart.
  • Heart failure: the heart pumps insufficient blood to meet the body’s needs.
  • Angina pectoris: reduced blood flow causes chest pain.
  • Cerebrovascular diseases: in other words, a blood clot or possible bleeding in the brain.
  • Hypertension: is high blood pressure, which increases the risk of having a heart attack.
  • Arrhythmia: is an alteration of the heart rhythm that can be a sign of other heart problems.
