The fight against the manifestations of atherosclerosis – narrowing of the arteries due to the accumulation of plaque – should be started immediately after the first symptoms appear. About it writes portal “Medikforum”.
According to doctors, people often perceive this disease as a sign of approaching aging, which cannot be avoided. On the contrary, early diagnosis and treatment can protect the body from the latter ailment. “The disease can lead to a lack of blood and oxygen in various tissues of your body or to the separation of pieces of plaque and the formation of a blood clot,” experts say.
Experts call chronic weakness, shortness of breath, headache and facial numbness as characteristic signs of atherosclerosis. These include chest pain, vomiting, coughing, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating, and numbness and pain in the limbs.
