Hypertensive Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Disease is said to be one of the major causes of death around the world. Cardiovascular diseases and complications involved are many and hence need to be treated at the earliest. The situation may strike at a young age and if left untreated may prove to be fatal.

Cardiovascular diseases are said to be one of the major reasons for high mortality rate in America and rest of the world. The related complication which may arise because of the cardiovascular diseases too is responsible for the large number of deaths around the world. Because of the Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD), a large number of diseases may arise like the inadequate supply of oxygen to the brain, lowering in the pumping of blood, failure of the valves. Sometimes because of the accumulation of various toxins in the body too, such problems may arise. CVD basically includes the following diseases- hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart diseases and stroke. So it is essential that CVD needs to be treated at the earliest or else the complications may prove fatal for the person.

With regard to the blood pressure which is also called as hypertension, if you suffer from high blood pressure than surely there is a chance to worry about as it is linked with various other diseases as well like heart stroke, kidney disorders, diabetes. So try to keep it under control with the help of proper medication followed by proper diet and lifestyle. Hypertension is said to be caused by stress, obesity, excessive smoking and drinking.
Atherosclerosis is said to occur because of the hardening of the arteries. There is a substance called plaque which is a fatty substance, when it gets deposited on the arteries, it may lead to Atherosclerosis. Due to this the blood supply to the heart is restricted and hence may cause chest pain or heart attack. Though this problem may affect any vessel present inside the body but the most affected ones are the aorta, coronary, carotid. This may start occurring at a young age and hence it is important that the doctor takes into account the history of patient before he begins the medications. But because of the resistance to the blood flow, there is increase in blood pressure of the person concerned.

The worst thing is that a patient who is suffering from hypertension also becomes a patient of the atherosclerosis and a number of other cardio vascular diseases of the coronary and cerebral vessels. This in turn has a negative effect on the brain and heart. The situation may also lead to the rupture of the blood vessels present inside the brain. Yet another important aspect is that sometimes the arteries in atherosclerosis may get narrowed down so much that they are hardly able to receive nay blood supply. This too calls for attention. The most important aspect is to go for regular checkups before the situation assumes alarming proportion.

My father-in-law passed away in 07 and I just stumbled across his autopsy report and it stated that he passed away from Hypertensive Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease. He couldn't smell or taste anything for about two years before passing, I was wondering if these are symptoms of this disease. I am worring that the same sudden departure may happen to my husband ( his son ) and I have read many articles but didn't see symptoms or signs. Thank you for your time, your kindness will be greatly appreciated..
