Be Considerate to Your Heart

7:30 AM 20 Comments A+ a-

Be Considerate to Your Heart | In an article in the Star (Heart disease ‘leading cause of death’), Dr Lee Boon Chye, the Deputy Health Minister, mentioned that heart disease is remained the leading cause of death among Malaysian from 2005 until 2018. Dr Lee said the mortality rate increase due to heart disease was also worrying as it had seen a 54% increase over 10 years with 13,503 deaths in 2017 compared to 8,776 in 2007.

Here are some of his speech regarding the issue, “The growing ageing population also contributed to the increase of heart patients and with a longer life expectancy, continuous treatment would be required. By 2040, it is estimated that the population of Malaysians aged 65 and above will exceed six million, which is 14.5% of the total population. The average age of people getting heart disease in Malaysia is 58, much younger in comparison to other countries."
Looking at the matter seriously and also in conjunction with World Heart Day 2019 which falls on September 29, Cardiac Vascular Sentral Kuala Lumpur (CVSKL) has embarked on its CVSKL Heart Health Campaign, offering free electrocardiogram (ECG) tests to the public in partnership with Qualitas Health. 
From October 1 till December 31 of this year, Malaysians over the age of 40 can walk into 10 selected Qualitas clinics in Klang Valley for a free test. This is particularly aimed at those with cardiovascular diseases in their family medical history, have high cholesterol, are hypertensive or have high Body Mass Index.

"At CVSKL, we have noticed young patients coming in for treatment of heart diseases. We are referring to those even younger than 58 which is the average age of patients with heart disease in Malaysia. This is worrying because even the average age for heart diseases is younger than that of other countries like Thailand (65), Singapore (61) and even the USA (66)," states Tan Sri Dr. Yahya Awang, Chairman of CVSKL.

"The Health Ministry lists heart disease as the leading cause of death in Malaysians between 2005 and 2017. As one of the leading providers of heart health treatment, we feel that it is likely that the average age for contracting heart diseases will only get younger despite the advancement in detection and treatment of heart disease. This is mainly due to the unhealthy lifestyle of our people.

"Many are not eating properly nor healthily, and many more are not exercising enough because of hectic schedules. Yes, we acknowledge some health-conscious Malaysians who go for regular check-ups but there are many who do not do it which results in diseases that go undetected and untreated," Dr. Yahya adds.

Chairman of Qualitas Healthcare Dato’ Dr. Noorul Ameen Mohamed Ishack said by offering free ECG, it is hoped that the public will be motivated to get themselves checked and detect any problems they may not be aware of.

"The selected clinics listed are well-equipped to conduct the ECG test. We are targeting for at least 3,000 people to come to our clinics to conduct the test through the duration of the campaign," Dato’ Dr Noorul Ameen said.

ini mek sangat setuju sebab kadang kita tak cakna pun dengan kesihatan jantung. rasa gula okei, tekanan darah tak tinggi dan tak rendah so kita ingat kita sihat. tapi sebenarnya kita tak check sepenuhnya. Kat kelantan ni pun kalau ke hospital swasta check up menyeluruh akan disarankan.
