The risk of a heart defect in the next 50 years
The number of people who will develop a heart failure, which causes sudden death or severe brain damage, in the future is expected to double from now until 2030, according to the latest research published in the American Journal of Cardiology.
The risk is expected increase to 1 in 20,000 by 2030, the researchers found.
The study, published in The Lancet, also found that people who have a heart problem are at a higher risk of developing a heart attack than those who do not have a condition.
The researchers believe the increased risk comes from an increase in the risk of cardiac events, including heart failure.
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the risk for heart failure is higher in people with diabetes and heart disease than in the general population.
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for 13.3 million deaths a year.
More heart transplants are needed, the authors of the new research say, as they also found heart problems were associated with increased risk of death from other diseases.
There are currently three ways to help prevent heart failure: reducing cholesterol levels, avoiding smoking, and having a regular heart-beating rhythm.
But a heart transplant could be a lifesaving option, experts said.
Dr. William C. O’Malley, a cardiologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering, said heart failure could be prevented by: •Having the right diet and exercise habits.
Eating a healthy diet, including a variety of fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy products, is a key to preventing heart failure and other cardiovascular problems.
Exercise is also important, he said.
In a statement, the American Heart Association said heart transplant surgery is a very safe and effective treatment.
“The American Heart Assn.
and other organizations believe that people with heart disease and heart failure should be able to obtain heart transplanted organs without waiting years, and that patients should be offered the opportunity to undergo this procedure without any medical problems,” the statement said.
A number of new methods are being developed to assist patients with heart failure to have a life-long hope of being able to have the transplant.
For example, the US Food and Drug Administration is working to make heart-lung transplants more affordable and accessible.
