How diet and lifestyle aggravate Heart Problem?
Diet is an important risk factor in coronary heart disease. Food related risk factors include obesity, high blood pressure, uncontrolled diabetes and a diet high in saturated fats. It is well established that a low-saturated fat, high-fibre, high plant food diet can substantially reduce the risk of developing heart disease. Heart disease results from the narrowing of the arteries that supply the heart with blood through a process known as atherosclerosis. Fatty deposits (or plaque) gradually build up on the inside of the artery walls, narrowing the space in which blood can flow to heart. Atherosclerosis can start when you are young, so by the time you reach middle age, it can be quite advanced. Cholesterol is a fat crucial to many metabolic functions and is an essential part of all the body?s cell membranes. It is made by the body from the food we eat and is produced in the liver. Blood lipids (fats) that contain cholesterol include low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL (?bad?) cholesterol can lead to plaque forming in the arteries while HDL (?good?) cholesterol helps to remove cholesterol from the body and makes it harder for plaque to form in the arteries. Eating a variety of foods is beneficial to our health and can help reduce our risk of disease including heart disease.

Anaemia is a condition in which the number of red blood cells or the haemoglobin concentration within them is lower than normal.

What is Diabetes? What are the types of Diabetes?
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body's systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels. Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes, are the two most common type of Diabetes, Gestational Diabetes occurs during pregnancy. Type 1 diabetes (previously known as insulin-dependent, juvenile or childhood-onset) is characterized by deficient insulin production and requires daily administration of insulin. Symptoms include excessive excretion of urine (polyuria), thirst (polydipsia), constant hunger, weight loss, vision changes, and fatigue. These symptoms may occur suddenly. Type 2 diabetes (formerly called non-insulin-dependent, or adult-onset) results from the body?s ineffective use of insulin. More than 95% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. This type of diabetes is largely the result of excess body weight and physical inactivity. Symptoms may be similar to those of type 1 diabetes but are often less marked. As a result, the disease may be diagnosed several years after onset, after complications have already arisen. Until recently, this type of diabetes was seen only in adults but it is now also occurring increasingly frequently in children.
