Enlargement and thickening of the left ventricle and heart failure with weight gain

A study done by American researchers shows an increased risk of enlargement and thickening of the left ventricle and reduced ability of the heart to pump blood (a heart failure condition) with as little as 5 percent of weight gain. Hearts of normal weight individuals too will be damaged with weight gain over a period of time. But they say likely reduction to heart damage and likely decrease in the thickness of the heart muscle (reduced risk of heart failure) even with a few pounds of weight loss.


Researchers also found that the risk of structural changes to the heart and reduced heart functionality remains even after considering factors that affect heart functionality such as tobacco usage, alcohol consumption, high blood sugar levels or type 2 diabetes (T2D) and high blood pressure or hypertension.

They found above results when they conducted a study among 1,262 men and women with an average age of 44 years but without any high-risk factor for heart disease. They took MRI scans of their heart and multiple body fat measurements at the beginning and after seven years.

Authors say accumulation fat around organs and in belly area may produce hormones causing inflammation and heart damage. The study suggests that those individuals with high risk of heart diseases should try to lose weight to reduce heart disease risks. Maintaining their current weight in the absence of weight loss is another heart disease preventive strategy to them.


Enlargement and thickening of the left ventricle and heart failure with weight gains.

Lead author of the study was Dr. Ian Neeland, a cardiologist and also Assistant Professor of internal medicine, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, United States. The study findings were published on July 19, 2017, in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Title of the article was "Dynamic Relation of Changes in Weight and Indices of Fat Distribution With Cardiac Structure and Function: The Dallas Heart Study."

Sudden decrease in weather temperature linked to risk of death from heart failure

A study done by researchers shows an association between risk of hospitalization and even death with changes in weather temperature. Their study shows likely increase in the death from heart failure in patients by seven percent with a ten-degree average drop in temperature over seven days period. Authors say preventive steps should be taken to protect patients diagnosed with heart failure from sudden changes in temperature as weather impacts health of a heart patient. The study also shows arthritis pain, sleep apnea and headaches with the barometric pressure before a storm.


FDA report indicates soybeans linked to a reduction of heart disease


Sudden decrease in weather temperature linked to risk of death from heart failure.

FDA report indicates soybeans linked to a reduction of heart disease. A new report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggests reduced risk of coronary heart disease with the consumption of soybean oil. The report also mentions omega-3 fatty acids present in soybean oil which can lower LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels.
