The laboratory package examines the laboratory risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. The tests of the package are especially recommended for the high-risk group, whose family has already had this type of illness and is living a stressful lifestyle.
Cardiovascular diseases are one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Coronary heart disease is an inflammatory disease of the blood vessels in the large and small blood vessels (coronary arteries) that supply the heart, resulting in gradual or sudden vascular occlusion. Plaque that accumulates under the inner layer of the blood vessels that supply the heart is responsible for the narrowing of the blood vessels. As a result of the narrowed blood vessels, the supply of oxygen to the heart muscle cells decreases, causing chest pain and, in more severe cases, myocardial infarction with myocardial necrosis. Moreover, oxygen deficiency can lead to arrhythmias, heart failure, and sudden cardiac death.
Stroke is brain damage caused by disorders of cerebral circulation. The disease develops when the blood supply to an area of the brain is reduced to such an extent that some of the cells in it are killed. Its signs are temporary paralysis and speech and vision problems. The most common symptoms include weakness or paralysis of the limbs, numbness of the face, arms and legs, sudden dizziness and blurred vision, severe headache, possibly vomiting, and memory problems and confusion.
