There are different types of angina:
Some things about you or your lifestyle could put you at higher risk of angina, including:
Angina is most common in adults over the age of 60.
Inform your doctor if your mother, father, or any siblings have or have had cardiovascular disease or a heart attack.
Hypertension damages arteries over time by hastening artery hardening.
Too much bad cholesterol, known as low-density lipoprotein (LDL), in the bloodstream can cause artery narrowing. High LDL cholesterol raises the risk of angina and heart disease. A high triglyceride level in the blood is also harmful.
Diabetes raises the risk of heart attack, which causes angina and heart attacks by hastening atherosclerosis and elevating cholesterol levels.
Obesity increases the risk of heart disease, which might lead to angina. Obesity causes the heart to beat to supply blood throughout the body.
Smoking, chewing tobacco, and long-term secondhand smoke exposure can harm the lining of the arteries, allowing cholesterol deposits to accumulate and block blood flow.
Inactivity is linked to high cholesterol, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Consult your doctor about the type and number of exercises that are best for you.
Angina is more likely in people who have chronic kidney problems, peripheral arterial disease, metabolic syndrome, or a history of stroke.
