Congestive heart failure is the occurrence of the heart completely failing and stopping, often due to environmental causes and factors related to poor lifestyle choices, sedentary lives with a lack of exercise, poor diet plans that are high in fast food and processed foods and fats, and occasionally, genetic issues that exacerbate heart problems in time and create major issues for people based on their genes and past heart troubles in their families and blood lines.


As you might expect, there is a good deal of issues related to congestive heart failure and a good portion of the population is increasingly at risk for congestive heart failure and related problems, simply because of poor diet, poor health habits, a lack of exercise, and generally sedentary lifestyles that, in time, greatly harm the heart and other areas of the body.


It’s important to be proactive with medical care when seeking to prevent congestive heart failure, as well as when seeking to strengthen the heart in general and improve overall health in patients.


Causes of Congestive Heart Failure

The causes of congestive heart failure are numerous, and can start first and foremost with genetics: a good number of people deal with congestive heart failure due to their genes and the issues that are present within their family. In time, those genes rise to the surface and create major health problems for a variety of people who otherwise would have been very healthy with better genes.


Outside of genetic problems, there are many lifestyle problems that create issues when it comes to congestive heart failure, and that work to maximize these issues and exacerbate heart problems. These environmental issues include lifestyle decisions like a lack of exercise and a focus on too much sedentary habits and life plans, a focus on eating too much fast food and processed foods that are high in sodium, calories, and fats, and too much reliance on issues relating to poor health choices, a lack of activity and movement, and a general lack of awareness of the need to be proactive in health.


Symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure

The symptoms of congestive heart failure do not display themselves in short bursts, but rather over time as they work to see to it that you slowly lose heart function and your body slowly becomes more inefficient and unhealthy. As such, congestive heart failure can do great damage to people who have to deal with these serious issues as they move forward worrying about their overall health and prognosis.


Congestive heart failure can also do a good bit of damage to people in the short term with symptoms relating to chest pain, shortness of breath, high blood pressure, wheezing, difficulty walking or moving, difficulty going up flights of stairs, and more symptoms related to the inability to be physically active and generally healthy.


It is important to have your doctor routinely test and check your heart to ensure that you are healthy enough for physical activity and more, lest you worry about how congestive heart failure may affect you and your prospects for a healthy future in the long term.
