Consistently elevated blood pressure damages the arteries and makes them more prone to plaque buildup, leading to an increased risk of heart disease.
High levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides can contribute to the formation of plaque in the arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease.
Smoking damages blood vessels, reduces oxygen supply, increases blood pressure, and promotes the formation of blood clots, all of which significantly increase the risk of heart disease.
Excessive body weight, particularly around the waist, can lead to conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, which increase the risk of heart disease.
Lack of regular exercise weakens your heart and cardiovascular system, increases the risk of obesity and other health factors, and contributes to the development of heart disease.
People with diabetes are at a higher risk of heart disease due to elevated blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, and abnormal cholesterol levels.
A diet high in saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, sodium, and refined sugars can contribute to the development of heart disease by increasing blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Heavy and prolonged alcohol consumption can raise blood pressure, contribute to obesity, and increase the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular conditions.
Chronic stress and excessive emotional strain can lead to behaviours such as overeating, smoking, or physical inactivity, increasing the risk of heart disease.
