CardioVascular Diseases usually have a degree of inheritance i.e. if your parents have hypertension, there's a higher chance you will have hypertension. What's unusual is the degree of environmental variation that can be exhibited. As stated by the World Health Organization (WHO): Behavioral risk factors are responsible for about 80% of coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease'' - WHO Global status report of non-communicable diseases, 2010. In other words, your family history may give you an increased chance for developing these chronic diseases but ultimately it's what your decision that makes the difference. Unfortunately, most CardioVascular Diseases (CVDs) remain silent for a long time. Often CVDs are only discovered when end-stage complication arise.
Over the decades, we've seen the rise of new global health issues. A more sedentary lifestyle has lead to an increase in chronic cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. Chronic cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a group of metabolic conditions that cause damage of the blood vessels (amongst other things) and eventually lead to heart attacks or stroke. The commonly encountered cardiovascular diseases in Singapore are: (1) Hypertension (23.5% of the population); (2) Diabetes mellitus (11.3% of the population); (3) Dyslipidemia (17.4% of the population); (4) Obesity (10.8% of the population). Chronic diseases take time to develop, often years to decades without you realize. In the early stages chronic diseases may not cause any symptoms to the patient. Many cases are only diagnosed much later, when complications have arisen and irreversible damage has already occurred. This need not be the case. CardioVasular Diseases (CVD) may not cause many symptoms but they do have telling signs that can be picked up via TeleMonitoring by doctor. With early detection and intervention, we can reduce the risk of CardioVascular diseases and enhance you with a healthier life.
