Cardiovascular Disease Treatment in London
According to the World Health Organisation, cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death across the globe, claiming just under 18 million lives each year and accounting for 36 per cent of all global deaths.
That equates to around 30 times more deaths than Covid-19 is currently expected to have caused.
Of those 18 million lives lost, 17 million – or 96 per cent – are classed as premature and affecting people under the age of 70.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the collective term for a group of disorders of the heart and related blood vessels. They include disease of the blood vessels supplying the heart, the brain and limbs, rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease (a heart condition present at birth), deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Diagnoses of cardiovascular conditions such as stroke, coronary artery disease, heart attacks and asymptomatic atherosclerosis are on the rise across the world and there are multiple genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that make it one of the most prevalent threats to life across the world.
There is now a growing body of research that suggests these conditions may be prevented, slowed down, or even reversed using system-based, lifestyle interventions and targeted supplements.
Modern life is not conducive to good cardiovascular health. Despite much greater awareness around healthy lifestyles and making choices that are better for our wellbeing, we continue to live in a disposable society dominated by junk food and poor rates of exercise.
One of the key contributory factors to CVD is poor diet and obesity. The UK has the highest adult obesity rate in Europe (27.8 per cent), according to the most recent research available, published in 2016.
At 360 Health Clinic in London, our private GPs work in partnership with you to help you to improve your lifestyle choices, prioritise good nutrition habits and develop positive exercise routines to reduce – and potentially reverse – Cardiovascular disease outcomes.
These interventions are known to impact positively on health and there is now evidence to show that in some cases, making lifestyle changes can extend the life expectancy.
