Smoking, excess weight and unfavorable heredity are the main factors that increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. But there are less obvious reasons that we often overlook.
Too intense training
If one day you decide to start a he althy lifestyle and train almost to the point of wear and tear, the effect may not be very joyful. Exercising too long or too intensely overloads the heart. If you decide to set sports records, plan your preparation with a good doctor.
If you toss and turn from side to side for a long time in the evening or often wake up at night, be sure to consult a doctor to find the cause of the disturbance and improve sleep. Prolonged insomnia increases the risk of cardiovascular disease by an order of magnitude.
Too much sugar
Sweets and simple carbohydrates (white bread, white rice, white pasta) cause blood sugar spikes and increase the risk of heart disease. Grain bread, on the other hand, can stabilize glucose levels and reduce the risk of heart disease by 9%.
Difficulties with sex
Erectile dysfunction in men over 40 often indicates problems with blood vessels, which means it may be the first sign of cardiovascular disease.
