Iron Deficiency linked with Heart Disease : Taking care of health is the most important thing in a busy life. If you are a little careless in this, then its effect can be very serious. That’s why it is important to get regular exercise, nutritious diet and better sleep. Due to this, the heart, mind and your body, all three remain fit. Because the connection of these three keeps your health completely fit. The effect of taking your nutritious diet is not only on the body, but also on your heart. A new information has come out regarding the risk of heart diseases.
According to a news report published in Dainik Jagran newspaper, it has been told in a research that in the last decade, 10 percent of the people of middle age who fell victim to heart-related diseases, got sick by removing iron deficiency. could have been avoided. The findings of this study are published in the journal ‘ESC Heart Failure’ of the European Society of Cardiology. published Has happened.
However, the author of this research and Dr. Benedikt Schrage of the University Heart and Vasculature Center Hamburg, Germany, said that this is an observational study. But there is evidence that these findings can form the basis for further research and prove the link between iron deficiency and the risk of heart disease.
Participants were divided into two
Dr Benedict Schrage said that earlier studies have shown that iron deficiency is associated with worsening of the condition of people with cardiovascular diseases, resulting in increased hospitalization and in many cases deaths. Happened too. Whereas with the improvement of the condition of the patients with Intravenous Iron Treatment, their ability to work increased.
The current study included 12,154 people from the European community. Of these, 55 percent were women. These participants were divided into parts. One severe iron deficiency (ferritin stored only in body tissues) and the other functional iron deficiency (stored ferritin and for use in blood circulation). Dr Shrage said that in the traditional assessment of severe iron deficiency, circulating iron is missed.
What happened in the study
60 percent of the people involved in the study had severe iron deficiency and 64 percent had functional iron deficiency. After this, in a follow-up study of 13.3 years, it was found that 2,212 (18.2%) people died. Of these, 573 (4.7 percent) died due to cardiovascular causes. Coronary heart disease and stroke were reported or diagnosed in 1,033 (8.5 per cent) and 766 (6.3 per cent) respectively.
Functional iron deficiency was found to be associated with a 24 percent higher risk of coronary heart disease, while the risk of death was 26 percent higher. Also, the risk of death due to functional iron deficiency was 12 percent higher than the risk of death from other causes.
Similarly, a severe iron deficiency (absolute iron deficiency) was found to be associated with a 20 percent higher risk of coronary heart disease. However, the association of iron deficiency with the incidence of stroke was not found. The analysis revealed that if there was no iron deficiency at baseline, there could have been a reduction of about five percent in the number of deaths. Similarly, deaths from cardiovascular diseases could be reduced by 12 percent and new coronary heart diseases by 11 percent.
