Experts talk / What is the right age when heart care should start

Experts talk / What is the right age when heart care should start

Heart disease is the leading cause of premature death in the world. According to the Institute of Statistics, in 2017, mortality from heart disease increased by 2.4 percent.

The World Health Organization says that from 2005-2016 deaths from these diseases increased by more than 19 percent.

In 2017, 11,926 people lost their lives to heart disease.
These data show that Gjirokastra and Korça have the highest prevalence of premature deaths from heart disease. Medical experts have concluded that care for heart health should begin in childhood. Childhood represents a golden opportunity to inform and promote the importance of wise health choices. A study published in the journal Cardiology recommends that children learn about the importance of heart health. Experts say that if a person learns about the diseases that threaten him from childhood, when he grows up he will make wiser choices.

Importance of Information on Risk Factors
Experts advise informing children about risk factors that contribute to heart disease. These risk factors are also present in the lives of children. They are less and less doing physical activity and are sitting for a long time in the presence of electronic devices. Experts say that 8 percent of children in the world suffer from high cholesterol. 20% of high school students in the world smoke, one of the biggest risk factors for heart disease. Specialists in the country are concerned about the fact that the number of adolescent smokers in Albania is growing alarmingly.

Smoking in adolescence and youth is increasing significantly
According to INSTAT, smoking among adolescents has increased by over 50 percent in men, while the prevalence among women remains lower. If this risk factor is not addressed at a young age, Albanian youth are more at risk of heart disease at a later stage of life. This is why intervening from childhood to inform children about health is very important. According to experts, childhood is the ideal period to stop but also not to start bad habits. These interventions will serve to give the younger generation a better health opportunity in the future./AgroWeb.
