Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Plaque begins its growth in arteries and is typically the result of a lifetime of eating fatty, processed and unhealthy foods. Years of plaque buildup can cause the arteries to become narrow, blocking vital blood flow to the heart. If the plaque breaks free and ruptures, a blood clot forms over the rupture. The result of this rupture is usually heart attack, stroke or pulmonary hypertension, all of which are very serious and, oftentimes, fatal conditions. Pulmonary hypertension happens when the arteries become too narrow to carry blood to the heart, causing abnormally elevated blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs. Among some of the symptoms of pulmonary hypertension are shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting and swelling of the extremities.
Although the etiology of pulmonary hypertension remains unknown and risk factors are poorly defined, recent studies do indicate that obesity may play a key role in the development of this deadly disease. Researchers believe that adiponectin, a protein based hormone that is produced naturally by the body and functions to manage fats, lipid and glucose, is plentiful in lean individuals whereas this hormone is scarce in obese people. The reduced levels of adiponectin lend a higher risk of developing pulmonary hypertension.
