Every year, nearly 1 out of 3 deaths in Singapore
are caused by heart diseases.
Our arterial elasticity decreases as we grow older, resulting in our blood vessels being unable to take in more blood as compared to before.
Men are more likely to experience heart disease as compared to women. However, heart disease still remains as the leading cause of death for both sexes.
Genetics play a part in the status of your heart health. Having a family member that suffers from heart disease increases your risk by 3 fold.
Experiencing a heavy workload at home, in school or at work? A hectic lifestyle can increase your blood pressure and likeliness of experiencing heart disease.
Over 30% of medical problems stem directly from sleep. Both short and long sleepers actually have an increased risk of suffering from heart disease or stroke.
A cigarette a day transforms your blood to become thick and sticky. As a result, your heart has to pump harder to get blood to other parts of your body.
While exercising is good for you, too many high intensity workouts can cause irregular heart rhythm in later life, ultimately increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Similarly, spending long periods of time without exercise or a lack of physical activity can also double your chances of developing heart disease.
Marathons are very popular events in Singapore. However, studies show that regular marathoners have a higher mortality rate due to the increased plaque in their arteries.
Being overweight increases your chances of experiencing heart disease by 50%. The
higher your body mass index (BMI), the higher your risk.
Too much sugary and fatty food in your diet? Beware of high levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol that will build up in your arteries and clog your blood vessels.
1 in 3 Singaporeans suffer from diabetes, which makes it more difficult for your body to respond in the event of a stroke or heart disease.
The buildup of plaque in your blood vessels due to high levels of LDL cholesterol increases your chances of experiencing a heart attack, stroke or artery disease.
Constant pressure on the walls of your arteries makes it susceptible to cholesterol and calcium plaque formation, which can result in heart attack or stroke.
While we are unable to modify risk factors such as our age,
sex and genes, studies show that up to 90% of heart disease
can actually be prevented just by changing our lifestyle.
Go for regular checkups
Visit your doctor regularly to enquire about your cardiovascular health, especially if you have a family member who suffered from heart disease.

Prioritise at least 7-8 hours of good quality sleep to reduce your risk of heart diseases.

Exercise the right way
Completing at least 150 minutes of exercise (e.g. jogging and swimming) every week is ideal. While exercising, always remember to take a break and not over-exert yourself.
For marathoners, always start training at least 1 year before the actual event. Consider running shorter races and build up your weekly mileage over time.
