Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
A new report and video from Health News Wires titled Specific Digestive Disorders Linked to Increase in Heart Attacks details how certain digestive disorders increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
People suffering from inflammatory bowel disease, specifically Crohns and Colitis, appear to be at an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. People with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) demonstrated between a 10% and 25% increase in heart attack and stroke risk. Surprisingly, women with IBD were more at risk than men.
This information means sufferers need reduce other risk factors of heart attack and stroke, including maintaining healthy weight, controlling blood pressure, preventing metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
IBD affects over 1.5 million people in the United States; symptoms of IBD include inflammation in the intestines, diarrhea, bloating, cramping and gas. Symptoms can be managed with a healthy diet, by managing or lowering stress levels, and participating in regular exercise.
Supplementing with probiotics is an effective way to reduce the symptoms associated with several forms of IBD. Probiotics are good bacteria naturally present in the digestive system. Supplementing with probiotics ensure that good bacteria make up the recommended 85% of bacteria in the digestive system.
