Viscous Blood And Risk Of Heart Failure?
I checked into the hospital yesterday. I got the check results which are generally said: “My blood is too thick and if my blood freezes, the blood supply to the doctor stops, or the blood supply to the brain, automatically my heart failure.” Can I recover? I heard it was frustrating
Hello Refan, thank you for the question.
You should add information about the history of what diseases you have and how your current health condition. What are your indications for a hospital check, it should also be explained. Have you consulted the doctor who examined you after receiving the results of the examination? Blood viscosity can be increased in several conditions, for example:
history of chronic diabetes mellitus that is not controlled chronic hypertension atherosclerosis (calcification and stiffness of blood vessels) history of high lipid levels congenital heart disease disorders of red blood cell formation certain autoimmune diseases increased blood viscosity generally accompanied by narrowing of blood vessels (such as hypertension) and atherosclerosis. Blood flow becomes slower, so it is easy to form blood clots. Blood clots can be carried by the bloodstream and clog a blood vessel in an organ. Small blockages generally don't cause problems, but large blockages can cause death and tissue damage. If the damaged organs are the brain and heart, then there may be various disorders, for example; stroke, dementia, coronary heart disease, heart attack, and the final stage of heart failure. The process takes years. Therefore, of course you can still prevent worsening. Discuss this result with the doctor who is treating you. The doctor will look for any possible causes. The cause must be addressed first, while starting treatment if needed.
Change your diet and lifestyle, namely:
Stop smoking, limit caffeine and alcohol consumption. Moderate aerobic exercise 3-5 times a week, every 30 minutes. Do exercise gradually and according to self ability. 6-8 hours night rest. Recognize and overcome stress factors. Increase consumption of vegetables, fruit, vegetable protein, or protein from lean meat. Limit your intake of processed factory foods, high in trans fat, high in saturated fat, high in sugar and high in salt. Hopefully this brief exposure can help find your solution. Regards.
