In 2017, WHO published data which shows that heart disease is the reason for 21.76% of deaths in Pakistan. Pakistan is ranked No. 13 in the world when it comes to deaths due to coronary heart disease at the rate of 246.84 per 100,000 of its population.
Coronary heart disease is a condition in which plaque build-up inside the coronary arteries.
Arteries are responsible for supplying blood filled with Oxygen to the heart. The other heart disease is the cardiovascular disease which is a condition in which the blood vessels get narrowed or blocked, which leads to heart attack, angina or stroke. One of the major causes of cardiac diseases in Pakistan is Hypertension as 33% of Pakistanis ageing over 45 years have hypertension.
This shows us that coronary heart disease is the major cause of deaths in Pakistan. 21.76% is a huge number in terms of the cause of deaths and there is a very little that we Pakistanis do about it. Pakistanis are more at risk due to their unhealthy diets, lazy routines, smoking, being a couch potato and lack of sports or exercise activities. This heart condition leads to high cholesterol levels, obesity, inactiveness and many more major issues.
