What Is Heart Disease?
There are eight common types of heart disease that present in men and women. These types of heart disease include high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrest, congestive heart failure, arrhythmia, peripheral artery disease, stroke and congenital heart disease. Most people do not associate high blood pressure with heart disease, but it is the most common form. It comes from the force of blood pumping through veins causing undue pressure on veins, creating a high-stress environment that accelerates aging of the veins. People over 40 are most commonly diagnosed with high blood pressure. Often high blood pressure has no symptoms, but severe high blood pressure can result in stroke. Eating less salt and exercising regularly are ways that men and women may be able to lower their blood pressure without medical intervention. Stress management, quitting smoking and diuretics may also be able to help lower blood pressure.
What Are the Hormonal Causes of Heart Disease?
One of the causes of heart disease may be a decline in estrogen after aging. Estrogen has a protective effect on the coronary system, and the loss of it can be difficult for the body to adjust to. Along with estrogen decreasing, cholesterol also tends to increase, making things more difficult for cardiac health.
How Can Hormone Pellets Help Heart disease?
By supplementing missing estrogen, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets may be able to reduce the risk of heart disease as well as the severity of heart disease. Hormone pellets have the advantage of offering a consistent administration of the medication which keeps patients from experiencing the roller coaster effects of pills and creams. Pills and creams offer less consistent dosing which is why patients are affected this way by this administration.
