    HoD cautions women on heart diseases

    Excelsior Correspondent

    JAMMU, Jan 31: In a bid to reach out to the people living in the remote corners of Jammu district, Cardiology Department of Government Medical College and Super Speciality Hospital (GMC&SS) Jammu today held a day-long camp at Panchayat Ghar, Kangrail in Mishriwala area of Jammu city.

    Head, Department of Cardiology Dr. Sushil Sharma led a team of young and enterprising doctors which screened male as well as females, who had specially gathered to find out their whether or not they were living a heart healthy life. With focus on preven- tion of cardiac diseases in females both young and old, Dr. Sushil interacted with those being screened to apprise them about signs and symptoms of heart dis- eases in females.

    It is myth that most people, including women nurture that they are immune to heart diseases and heart attacks, said Dr. Sushil. He added that hormone oestrogen doesn't protect women from a sud- den heart attack and both men and women are prone to heart disease alike. He said that there has been 16-20 per cent growth in cardio- vascular diseases among women in the last five years and of this, 10-15 per cent growth in such diseases among women in the age group of 20-40 years-the category which was earlier considered protected from heart ailments.

    Dr. Sushil added that due to changes in lifestyle, not only have the risk factors for the cardiovascu-

    lar diseases like stress, smoking and drinking increased consider- ably, but co-morbid conditions like obesity, hypertension and diabetes have also gone up. "Women often overlook symptoms and discom- fort pertaining to heart diseases, and rarely consult an expert. Even if they opt for consultation, more often than not, they discontinue the treatment as soon as they get symptomatic relief. The compli- ance rate is comparatively poor among women," said Dr. Sushil.

    He maintained that since work- ing women juggle home and work responsibilities, they are more like- ly to get exposed to stress and unhealthy lifestyle and, therefore, may be more prone to cardiovascu- lar diseases as compared to non- working women. The need is to encourage women to go for a heart health check-up and accompany her to one, said Dr. Sushil.

    He spelled out that like males, in females; High blood pressure or hypertension is a silent disease. If left untreated, it makes the heart work harder, speeds up hardening of the arteries, and increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure. "Women who have a histo- ry of high blood pressure and over- weight women with high blood pressure are also at greater risk. Although high blood pressure can- not be cured, it can be controlled with diet, exercise, and, if necessary, medicines," added Dr. Sushil.

    The team of doctors which assisted Dr. Sushil included Dr. Mohi Kalsotra, Dr. Dhaneshwar Kapoor and Dr. Anitipal Singh. Paramedics and Volunteers who were part of the team included Kashmiri Lal, Kamal Kishore, Sanjay Sharma, Gaurav Sharma, Vikas Kumar,Mohan Krishan and Rahul Tickoo.
