Vascular disorders involve arteries which carry the oxygen to every living cell in the human body and veins which carry the blood depleted by oxygen to your heart.
When you think about what arteries and veins are, imagine them as roads of your body. In cases of a traffic jam or work on the road, you have a slowed down traffic and that is when problems arise. It’s the same with your body. If blood can’t reach certain parts of your body or if it can’t get away from it, then health problems will arise and the quality of life will be impaired. Fortunately, most of the vascular disorders are treated successfully even without surgical treatment.
The source of our happiness is in subjective traits: a noble character, an entrepreneurial spirit, a happy temperament, a cheerful mind and a healthy body.
In the countries of the European Union, cardiovascular mortality was 42%, and in Montenegro, cardiovascular mortality is over 54%.
In Montenegro in the last decade, there is a trend of increasing number of patients with cardiovascular diseases, as well as their representation as a group in total dying. In relation to the stated values as well as the average standardized mortality rate in Europe from 479.4 to 100.000 and USA from 317 to 100.000, it can be said that Montenegro is in the group of countries with a high rate of dying from diseases of the circulatory system.
Prevention of the circulatory system diseases is best done by applying healthy lifestyles that combine moderation, healthy nutrition, aerobic physical activity, smoking cessation, strengthening and maintenance of mental health. It is possible!
