Disease prevention and treatment

Diseases that can make a person suddenly slump and die

What causes such unanticipated fatalities, one wonders? There are typically multiple causes of death, and in many of these instances, the cause is a "silent killer" illness that doesn't show any symptoms until it has advanced to the most severe phases.

However, a lot of medical professionals believe that the brain and the heart are frequently involved in sudden fatalities. This article's goal is to investigate two (2) medical conditions that can abruptly make some people lethargic and confused, confusing their loved ones and friends in the process.

Below are diseases that can lead to these issues:

1. Sudden cardiac arrest

According to Healthline, A kind of electrical spark is created when the muscle cells in the heart contract simultaneously to generate a heartbeat enabling the human heart's electrical pumping action. As a result, blood is circulated through the heart's valves and into each organ in the body.

This process, however, could malfunction if the heart's electrical system is inflamed and unable to generate the activities that cause the heart to beat. The heart would stop beating as a consequence of this. This would prevent the heart muscle from pumping blood throughout the body, particularly to the brain, and would eventually lead to death.

One of the most frequent reasons for sudden cardiac arrest is heart disease, which includes blood clots, heart muscle inflammation, cardiomyopathy, narrowing of the aortic valve, and other conditions of a similar nature. It is crucial to keep track of how much of certain foods you consume because they can negatively affect your heart. Diet has a significant impact on the majority of conditions that can cause sudden cardiac arrest.

This category of food includes foods that are sugary and salty as well as red meat, bacon, processed meats, soda, baked products, white rice, pasta, bread, pizza, and alcoholic beverages.

2. Stroke

A stroke is another factor that could contribute to an untimely death in a person. It occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, which eventually leads to the death of brain cells. When the part of the brain that regulates the body's natural life support systems, such as breathing and heartbeat, is affected, the loss of brain cells is especially harmful and may cause untimely death.

In the most severe types of stroke, the patient may be in a stupor, which could mean that the stroke was so severe that the patient might not survive.

Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiac disease are just a few of the main risk factors that have been connected to strokes. It is advised that you consume fewer certain foods because they are associated with an increased risk of having a stroke.

Dietary factors are crucial in stroke episodes. Foods that fit into this group include those with a high salt content, those with saturated fats, trans fats, and cholesterol, as well as meals with a lot of alcohol.
