A new study done by the John Hopkins School of Medicine showed that middle-aged people who exercise can reduce the risk of heart failure by 33 percent. Researchers also found that people who do not exercise increase their risk of heart failure.
It is important to note that this was an observational study. The researchers did not examine the link between heart failure and exercise. They also stated that the results of the study do not necessarily prove that exercise prevents heart failure. However, there have been countless studies done to confirm that exercise can greatly reduce the risk of heart disease.
Experts recommend that people exercise at least 150 minutes per day. You do not have to go to the gym to get a great workout. You can go for a walk or put on some music and dance. You can also ride a bike. It is important to note that some exercise is better than no exercise at all.
Heart failure is a condition that affects 5 to 6 million people in this country. It occurs when the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body’s demands. There are several treatments available for heart failure that can reverse the condition or prevent it from worsening. This includes medication, surgery and lifestyle changes. In many cases, lifelong treatment is needed to manage heart failure.
High blood pressure, diabetes and the use of certain medications can increase the risk of heart disease. Sleep apnea can also increase the risk of heart disease.
