Heart Disease Risk Factors for Teenagers and Children

Heart Disease Risk Factors for Teenagers

There are many risk factors associated with the development of heart disease in a person at a very young age. These risk factors can be treated, changed or modified at the early stages of life but sometimes they are a cause of serious concern if not treated properly.

Most of the risk factors for heart disease can be controlled but in some cases such as children with a family history of heart disease may face difficulties in controlling this disease. As we are familiar with the fact that prevention is better than cure, therefore, controlling risk factors starting at an early age can reduce the risk of developing heart disease as an adult.

Risk Factors associated with heart disease

The most common Heart Disease Risk Factors for Teenagers and Children are listed below:

1.High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure or hypertension is a heart disease that sometimes goes undetected in childhood due to lack of symptoms. There are many causes of hypertension such as eating habits, hereditary link or result of another disease, like kidney disease or heart disease.

2.High Blood Cholesterol
Extra cholesterol gets deposited in the body that interferes in the normal flow of blood in the body causing pressure in the bloodstream. The risk factors associated with high cholesterol include high blood pressure, obesity, and smoking.

3.Obesity
Childhood obesity is one of the most common problems of the recent time. There are approximately 30 to 40% of children who are obese. As a result, obesity-related problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease can be seen in children at a very young age.

4.Smoking
Some studies have found that the person who smokes have a double risk of developing heart disease. Although in children and teenagers there is a low risk of heart disease if a person smokes the chances of developing the risk of heart disease appears. These days it is being observed that a large number of teenagers begin to smoke at a very early age that may lead to increased cardiovascular problems.

5.Lack of physical activity
Children who do not perform any physical activity are at greater risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, cholesterol, diabetes, and obesity.

Consequences of Heart Disease
Children with heart disease risk factors with high total cholesterol, obesity, and smoking habits have thick arteries than children who do not have these risk factors. All the risk factors listed above may block or reduce the supply of blood and oxygen to many organs of the body. It may affect the heart and the brain. This blockage may lead to other conditions such as stroke.

How to prevent the risk of heart disease in Children and Teenagers

  • Maintenance of healthy body weight
  • Intake of foods low in cholesterol and fat such as fruits and vegetables.
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Talk to children about the effects of bad habits such as smoking and encourage them to involve in more physical activities.
