Cardiomyocyte hypertrophy is a medical condition characterized by the thickening of the heart muscle, leading to reduced function of the heart in pumping blood throughout the body.
The heart formed part of the circulatory system is a muscular organ that pumps blood through the blood vessels of the body to provide oxygen and nutrients and removal of metabolic wastes.
The heart muscles made up the bulk of the heart’s mass control the heartbeat with high contractile strength and endurance.
Cardiac muscle also has a unique function to regulate heart performance by spreading electrochemical signals to all cells in the heart.
Damage of heart muscle has been found to induce blood vessel diseases, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias).
In some cases, heart muscle disease also is found in patients with congenital heart defects.
Most common symptoms of cardiac hypertrophy are breathlessness with exertion or at rest, legs, ankles, and feet swelling. persistent fatigue, dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting, particularly, in the symptoms of irregular heartbeats.
Conventionally, treatments of cardiac hypertrophy are totally depending on the types of heart disease, including lowering blood pressure medication such as ACE inhibitors; lowing the heart rate, such as beta-blockers, normalizing heart beating and balancing electrolytes in the body.
Making a healthy lifestyle change and moderate exercise may also recommend by your doctor.
Cardiac hypertrophy has been found in patients with uncontrol high blood pressure accompanied by tobacco smoking. The condition is a common risk factor of heart attack and stroke.
Dr. Thomas Kahan, the lead scientist wrote, "Myocardial hypertrophy is also part of the remodeling process following an acute myocardial infarction, and is a common finding in patients with congestive heart failure caused by systolic and/or diastolic LV dysfunction".
Turmeric is a perennial plant in the genus Curcuma, belongings to the family Zingiberaceae, native to tropical South Asia.
On findings a potential compound for the treatment of heart failure, researchers examined the efficacy of curcumin an anti-hypertrophic potential.
