Valencia Prime Cause Of Death
Atherosclerosis refers to the hardening and narrowing of the arteries caused by cholesterol plaques lining the artery over time. It puts blood flow at risk when arteries are blocked.
Heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral vascular disease are all symptoms of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body. They are lined with a thin layer of cells known as the endothelium.
Endothelium keeps the inside of the arteries in shape and keeps them smooth, which helps in having adequate blood flow in the body. Atherosclerosis starts when the endothelium is damaged and the common causes include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation from arthritis or lupus, obesity or diabetes, and smoking.
The disease results in plaques building up along the walls of the arteries. When bad cholesterol or LDL crosses a damaged endothelium, it enters the walls of the artery and the white blood cells stream in to digest the LDL. Cholesterol and cells eventually become plaques in the wall of the artery.
