Heart attack causes more deaths in women than men

Lisbon : A study has found that women have twice the rate of heart attack death than men.

In a study of 884 men and women in Portugal, researchers found that women’s chances of survival due to heart attack were reduced.

All of them were hospitalized for the most dangerous type of heart attack (in which the vein that supplies blood to the heart closes).

To open the closed vein, all the patients underwent angioplasty and a stent was inserted so that blood could circulate easily. Angioplasty was performed on these patients within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms and research was started to know the mortality rate in these patients.

The results of the study, presented at the European Society of Cardiology’s Scientific Congress Heart Failure 2023, showed that the number of women dying within 30 years after this medical condition occurred was 2.8 times higher.

On this occasion, 11.8 women died, while the death rate of men was 4.6 percent.

Women are at higher risk of dying from heart attacks because they have a heart attack when they are older than men and are generally in poor health.

Dr Mariana Martinho, lead author of the study, said that women of all ages who are affected by a heart attack are at a higher risk of deteriorating health.

He said that these women need to strictly control blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes after suffering from this medical condition.


Heart disease increases in people with kidney disease

A recent long-term study has shown that people with various kidney diseases or complications are more likely to develop heart disease, which becomes very severe in some people.

Several previous studies have also shown that kidney diseases are closely related to heart diseases, while they also increase the chances of serious diseases such as stroke.

In this regard, experts from Boston, Massachusetts, studied 600 people with kidney disease and reviewed their health again after about six years.

According to the medical journal ‘JAMA’, experts took kidney samples of 600 people and studied them in the laboratory and detected their disease.

After five and a half years, experts reviewed the health of all the volunteers again, which showed that 126 people suffered from serious diseases like heart disease, stroke, heart attack and heart failure and some of them also lost their lives.

All of the people who were part of the study were middle-aged and none of them were minors.

According to experts, the people whose kidney samples were taken were specifically diagnosed with two kidney diseases.

Most of these people were found to have garbage collection in the kidneys, while others were found to have problems like blocking blood transmission due to swelling in the kidneys.

According to experts, the causes of kidney waste can be many, but the problem is usually common in people with diabetes, while the problem of swelling in the kidneys and not having proper delivery of con there is associated with blood pressure, but there may be other reasons.

Similarly, experts said that other kidney diseases or complications can also cause serious diseases like heart disease and stroke, but the chances of people suffering from these two diseases increase

Potassium in Tomatoes supports health heart and lowers blood pressure.

Tomatoes have a high potassium content, but some people may have to give up eating them due to their high content.

Tomatoes are famous for having a high potassium content. Potassium in tomatoes serves many important functions and is responsible for many of their health-promoting properties. However, the high potassium content of tomatoes is also a disadvantage.

How much potassium do tomatoes have?

One of the basic health benefits of tomatoes is their high potassium content. 

  • 100 g of tomatoes have 237 mg of potassium . The same amount of potassium is in cherry tomatoes. 
  • Canned tomatoes have about 293 mg of potassium in 100 g.
  • Tomato concentrate has as much as 1014 mg of potassium per 100 g.
  • Tomato juice has 229 mg/ 100 ml.
  • Dried tomatoes have 1565 mg/ 100 g.
  • Tomato passata has approx. 439 mg/ 100 g.

Do tomatoes have a lot of potassium?

Tomatoes are high in potassium. It is one of the best sources of potassium in the diet. Eat plenty of tomatoes if you are advised to increase your potassium intake.

Potassium in tomatoes: benefits

The high potassium content in tomatoes is a huge benefit for most people. Potassium perfectly:

  • supports healthy hearts,
  • lowers the pressure,
  • is one of the electrolytes.

Potassium supplementation is especially important during hot weather because it is lost through sweat. Potassium is also involved in nerve transmission, protein synthesis, and enzymatic reactions.

Potassium in tomatoes: disadvantages

A high potassium content in tomatoes, on the other hand, is a disadvantage for some people. Anyone who has too much potassium in their blood (hyperkalemia) should avoid eating tomatoes. Tomatoes are thus prohibited in a low potassium diet. This is suggested for people:

  • with kidney failure,
  • with tetany (in some cases),
  • with hypoinsulinism,
  • in disorders of potassium excretion from the body, e.g. adrenal insufficiency,
  • with poorly managed diabetes (but tomatoes in diabetes are recommended).
