More than 50% of elderly and old people suffer from signs of arterial hypertension. Increase of pressure is very dangerous, it adversely affects on the body function.
Ischemic heart disease (IHD). The reason is imbalance between oxygen, that is delivered by blood, and the need for cardiac muscle in it. Reasons of ischemia can be different. Frequently enough it occurs because of the coronary arteries atherosclerosis development. Excessive quantity of cholesterol in the blood channels can deposit on vascular walls in the form of atherosclerotic plaques, causing lumina occlusions. For this very reason at the age of 35−40 and older it is necessary to undergo investigations allowing to define the cholesterol level in blood at least twice a year.
If left undefined and untreated, IHD will lead to myocardial infarction. In that case cardiac muscle area necrosis occurs. Connective-tissue cicatrix appears at that place. This part of cardiac muscle does not contract, hence it does not take part in the cardiac functions. It reduces the efficiency of cardiac function. Acute myocardial infarction becomes the reason of death among elderly and young people. Sudden hearts pains, that irradiate to the left arm and shoulder appear.
