Deputy Director Non-Communicable Diseases Control Lagos State, Ministry of Health, Dr. Abimbo Oshinowo, via Zoom said that a heart disease is a form of non-communicable disease resulting from damage to all or part of the heart, it is also damage to blood vessels of the heart (coronary arteries).

Consultant Cardiologist at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Lagos, Dr. Olusegun Akinsanya Joseph said heart failure occurs when the heart muscle does not pump blood as it should.

Olusegun stated that this year’s theme ‘Use heart to beat Cardiovascular disease’ is a global call for individuals to make a promise that they would live a healthy lifestyle and also educate those around them on the importance of healthy lifestyles to ensure that heart-related diseases would be reduced in society.

“Not all conditions that lead to heart failure can be reversed, but treatments can improve the signs and symptoms of heart failure and help you live longer”.

He explained that lifestyle changes, such as exercising, reducing sodium in your diet, managing stress, and losing weight, can improve your quality of life. One way to prevent heart failure is to prevent and control conditions that cause heart failures, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or obesity.

He stated that heart failure signs and symptoms include, shortness of breath when you exert yourself or when you lie down, fatigue and weakness, swelling in your legs, ankles, and feet, rapid or irregular heartbeat, reduced ability to exercise.
