In the excitement of instant weight loss and getting fit, heart disease is on the rise in city
Mumbai-Thane: Veteran comedian Raju Srivastava passed away recently due to heart attack; The reason was that he had suffered a heart attack while exercising on the treadmill. Treadmill is a machine that can be found in all gyms these days. This is a type of cardio exercise that breaks down. Even in many elite homes this modern machine can be seen as one can work out on it anytime. How fast you run, how far you run, everything is visible on this machine. When Raju Srivastava was running on the treadmill, the exact speed at which he was running is not known, but that’s when he felt a pain in his chest and fell straight down. This is not a single example but many people have died while exercising in the country in the last five to six years. Giving more information about this, Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Surgeon and Director of Platinum Hospital, Mulund Dr. Bijoy Kutty says, “Not only Raju Srivastava, but earlier Siddharth Shukla and South Indian actor Puneet Rajkumar also faced similar heart attacks and died. Regular exercise increases your heart rate, improves your heart muscle and improves your lung capacity. On the other hand, the fad of over-exercise is on the rise. There is a growing misconception that if you exercise more, your heart will become stronger. It is important to check your cholesterol levels, sugar levels, and blood pressure before conducting any heavy exercise. According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine, these high-intensity exercises can lead to cardiac arrest and death in people with heart disease. High blood pressure, regular smoking, diabetes, excessive consumption of junk food, stress, inadequate sleep or recent infection are factors that can cause such inflammation. The blockages are a result of cells and cholesterol particles breaking through the barrier of endothelial cells and infiltrating the lining of the artery. As a result, there is a bump in the artery wall This is known as plaque. The pressure on the heart increases the risk of plaque rupture leading to a heart attack.”
Director of Shushrusha Super Specialty Hospital in Panvel and cardiologist Dr. Sanjay Tarlekar says, ‘Obesity problem has become common due to today’s hectic lifestyle and changes in diet. If we ignore increasing weight, we are inviting diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol increase, joint pain, indigestion, bile, depression etc. Similarly, body shape can deteriorate after childbirth, due to genetic reasons or some other reasons. That’s why many people rely on the gym to control weight for a healthy life and a fit and attractive body, but they have to conduct stress tests and other important tests before conducting any exercise.
