Women in the highest quartile for light physical activity--more than 5.6 hours per day--had a 32% lower risk of coronary heart disease
than those in the lowest quartile of activity, who engaged in less than 3.9 hours per day, after adjusting for factors such as comorbidities, lifestyle, and cardiovascular risk.
Coronary heart disease
occurs when your heart's blood supply is blocked or interrupted by a build-up of fatty substances in the arteries.
Therefore, the researchers say it is unclear whether the increased risk of heart failure, coronary heart disease
and heart attacks reflect the direct impact of repeated pregnancies, or the stressors associated with rearing multiple children, or both.
The researchers found that the underlying pathoanatomic substrate was comorbid coronary heart disease
and cardiomegaly/left ventricular hypertrophy in 82 percent of cardiac cases.
A coronary angiography is the most conventional diagnostic method of coronary heart disease
In addition, total testosterone levels were associated with increased cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease
, while estradiol is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease
and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, investigators reported in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
360,000 people a year are killed by coronary heart disease
It's also associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease
- damage in the heart's major blood vessels - which is reduced when patients go on a gluten-free diet.
In this study the input standards include having coronary heart disease
or stroke in the studied group, not having coronary heart disease
or stroke in the control group, age more than 30 and bleeding intention.
For the study, published in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation, the researchers took women aged between 27-44 and found that women with the highest level of light physical activity were at a 25 per cent lower risk incidence of coronary heart disease
For subjects whose serum magnesium was categorized as low, there was a 36% higher risk of coronary heart disease
mortality and a 54% greater risk of sudden cardiac death in comparison with those who had levels in the middle range.
Working more than the standard 35- to 40-hour work week could increase a person's risk of stroke and coronary heart disease
, found a study published in August in The Lancet.
