Cardiovascular and metabolic disorders are the most common age-related chronic diseases amongst Australians. Together obesity, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and Type 2 diabetes severely affect millions of people’s quality of life. All the symptoms of cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders are related to three key factors: insulin resistance, visceral obesity (abdominal fat) and endothelial (cells that line blood vessels) dysfunction.
The risk factors are mainly diet and lifestyle related and includes:
- high calorie diets
- high glycaemic load diets
- high fat diets
- high blood pressure
- lack of exercise
- being overweight
- chronic stress
- hormonal imbalances
- chronic inflammation
- high cholesterol
- depression, social isolation and the lack of social support
- smoking and
- Family history of early death from heart disease.
Poor cardiovascular health can be prevented. If you review the list above most of the factors are related to the choices we make and changes in lifestyle and diet can significantly reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular problems later in life. In other words, if you make better choices in regards to diet and lifestyle now, you can significantly reduce your biggest health risk.
