Description

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term associated with conditions that affect the structures or function of the heart, and the most common types of CVD includes: abnormal heart rhythms, aorta disease, congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, heart attack, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, heart valve disease, pericardial disease, peripheral vascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, stroke, vascular disease. The concrete cause of CVD isn't clear, but there are many criteria that can contributes to an individual having CVD, some of which are: high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, inactivity, obesity, family history of CVD, and ethnic background. CVD is usually associated with a build-up of fatty deposits called cholesterol inside the arteries in a process called atherosclerosis and this comes with an increased risk of blood clots, damage to arteries in organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys and eyes.
