Mla Arekapudi Gandhi Attended MINI WALKATHON organised by Medicover Hospitals


Hyderabad, 29th September 2022: MLA Arekapudi Gandhi, the chief guest, stated that this type of awareness programme must be conducted and brought into the current situation, as our lives are generally stressful. Stress appears due to a lack of enough sleep and other health reasons. But, for emotional reasons compared with other people who don't have enough money, daily activities also contribute to increased stress. If the mind is kept as calm as possible, the heart will also be calm. With this, we will not get any diseases.


Dr Balaji, senior cardiologist, said that we all know the common causes of heart attacks. The health tests we undergo will reveal things like diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol level, etc. Unfortunately, we often ignore the stress that causes heart attacks. It is difficult for patients or their consulting doctors to recognise that they are under too much pressure! Stress indeed. The biggest killer This alone is enough to cause a severe heart attack. Our body's response to this stress protects us. But, if this pressure increases continuously, it becomes dangerous. Studies show that people who suffer from chronic stress have the highest levels of cortisol. This increases blood cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and blood pressure. All these are also causes of heart diseases. Due to this stress, the accumulation of fat in blood vessels also increases. Similarly, catecholamines released during stressful events also increase blood pressure. This can cause heart attacks and heart failure. Even mild stress can reduce blood flow to the heart muscle. Due to this, the heart does not get enough oxygen. This increases blood cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and blood pressure. All these are also causes of heart diseases. Due to this stress, the accumulation of fat in blood vessels also increases. Similarly, catecholamines released during stressful events also increase blood pressure. This can cause heart attacks and heart failure. Even mild stress can reduce blood flow to the heart muscle. Due to this, the heart does not get enough oxygen.


Later, Cardiothoracic Surgeon Dr Promod Reddy said that the common symptoms due to stress are: pain, lethargy, insomnia, anxiety, anger, depression, impatience, and forgetfulness. People are likely to react differently in stressful situations. Some people are prepared to face any situation. Others seem to be indifferent. Fortunately, you can reduce the stress on your body. First of all, the factors that cause stress should be identified. Although it is difficult, the mental and physical responses in stressful situations must be controlled. Adequate exercise should be done. Due to exercise, the risks of stress can be reduced to some extent. For heart health, exercise for at least 30 to 40 minutes, 5 to 6 days a week. Exercise can improve cardiovascular health as well as help control weight. It also helps to increase cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure. Stress can also be reduced by exercise. Regular exercise can also reduce depression.
