Staying up late for a long time, smoking and drinking, a 23-year-old boy with blood vessels in a mess


May 18th is National Vascular Health Day, and blood lipids are closely related to cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease and myocardial infarction. Protecting the cardiovascular system is not only a concern for middle-aged and elderly people, but also for young people. We have treated a 23-year-old male patient and the examination showed that his blood vessels were completely messed up, "said Dr. Wang Lihong, director of the Department of Cardiology at Zhejiang Provincial People's Hospital. In his twenties, patients with sudden myocardial infarction and cardiovascular disease are becoming younger and younger. This is the experience of Wang Lihong, who has been practicing medicine for many years. "For patients with coronary heart disease, they used to be middle-aged and elderly people, but now they are more common in their thirties and even in their twenties." Recently, Wang Lihong just received a 23-year-old male patient who was urgently sent to hospital due to chest pain, We performed a coronary angiography on him, and the imaging showed that his blood vessels were pitted, with one section narrow and the other normal. It looked like there were many knots, which can be described as a mess, not as good as some elderly people in their sixties or seventies. The human heart has three major blood vessels, and the average patient with coronary heart disease has one of them hardening, narrowing, and many plaques, And this male patient has three major blood vessels that are simultaneously hardening and narrowing. At least three stents need to be placed to unblock blood vessels, "Wang Lihong said. After inquiring about his medical history, Wang Lihong learned that this young man's lifestyle habits have always been unhealthy: staying up late, drinking alcohol, smoking for a long time, almost having to eat a few snacks every week, and his diet is high in oil and salt. Young people with cardiovascular problems generally have these unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as less exercise, high work pressure, and constant emotional tension. The Department of Cardiology at Zhejiang Provincial People's Hospital once treated a younger male patient, who was only 21 years old and had a sudden heart attack late at night but ultimately did not recover. This male patient developed chest pain that night after being drunk due to obesity, high blood pressure, and a history of smoking. At its peak, the hospital had treated three patients in their early thirties within a week. Protecting the cardiovascular system. "Our blood vessels are actually very fragile, and bad lifestyle and dietary habits can easily harm them, especially long-term accumulation." Wang Lihong explained that when young people experience sudden myocardial infarction, there is often a trigger, such as intense exercise or significant emotional fluctuations, "leading to sudden rupture of blood vessels." Relatively speaking, middle-aged and elderly patients' cardiovascular systems are more prone to distortion after aging Bending and other states are a slow progression process. Regardless of the situation, it reminds us to protect our blood vessels. How to protect our blood vessels? Wang Lihong also gave some suggestions and reminders. Firstly, in terms of diet, it is important to try to be light and avoid high levels of oil and salt. Secondly, it is best to quit smoking and alcohol. Wang Lihong specifically mentioned that stimulating beverages such as coffee should not be consumed in excessive amounts. "Nowadays, many young people say they should use coffee to continue their lives. If they drink three or four cups a day in this way for a long time, caffeine can cause sympathetic nervous system excitement, affect the cardiovascular system, and easily enhance the contractile capacity of the heart muscle, leading to a faster heart rate. Finally, it is important to maintain emotional stability. Excessive stress and emotional fluctuations can have a significant impact on the occurrence, development, and prognosis of cardiovascular diseases
