Heart Disease

Heart disease portrays a scope of conditions that influence your heart. Diseases under the umbrella of heart disease include diseases of the blood vessels, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and the heart defects you were born with (congenital heart defects), among others.  Cardiovascular disease usually refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina), or a stroke. Other heart conditions, such as those that affect the muscles, valves, or heart rate, are also considered to be forms of heart disease. Heart disease is easier to treat when caught early, so talk to your doctor about your concerns about your heart health. If you are concerned about developing heart disease, talk to your doctor about steps you can take to reduce your risk of heart disease.
