As the saying goes, “Blood turbidity produces all kinds of diseases”. In simple terms, it means that the blood viscosity increases, which blocks blood vessels, affects blood flow, causes dysfunction of various organs in the body, and induces various disease.
Clinically, vascular blockage can lead to cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage, myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
Hazards caused by thick blood
Studies have shown that the normal functioning of various organs in the human body depends on the It depends on the adequacy of oxygen and nutrients in the blood.
Once the blood viscosity is too high, the blood circulation is blocked, and the transported substances cannot be “in place” in time, which will hinder the normal operation of the organ function.
What’s more serious is that high blood concentration can easily cause blood vessel blockage, resulting in arteriosclerosis and myocardial infarction.
In daily life, if the body finds 4 kinds of abnormalities, pay attention to blood viscosity
< strong>Abnormal 1. Insomnia and headache
If the blood vessels are blocked, it will cause some uncomfortable symptoms, such as: when the blood vessels in the brain and neck are blocked, It can lead to persistent headaches, insomnia, and difficulty falling asleep.
This type of headache can be described as “splitting headache”, especially at eight o’clock in the evening, which is the peak blood pressure period, and the headache will be more obvious.
On the contrary, if there is no such persistent headache, dizziness and other symptoms, it means that the blood supply and oxygen supply to the brain are still very good.
Abnormal 2. Unilateral drooling
Slobbering can be said to be a common phenomenon in life However, if there is only unilateral drooling, you must be vigilant, it is likely to be a signal of stroke.
When the blood vessels in the brain are blocked, it can lead to unilateral drooling, skewed corners of the mouth, and loose eye closure. Don’t delay.
Abnormal 3, numbness and swelling of legs and feet
If the blood in the human body is healthy, the blood vessels are normal, and the blood in the body is The circulation will be unobstructed, and the legs and feet are at the end of the body, which is the last part of the body to receive blood nourishment.
If a blood vessel in the body is blocked or a venous thrombosis occurs in the lower extremity, it can cause cold, painful, and swollen legs and feet.
This is because venous thrombosis will lead to insufficient blood supply to the hands and feet, which is prone to numbness and swelling, especially at night.
Abnormal 4, chest tightness, shortness of breath
When a blood vessel is blocked, it can affect the heart and lungs For example, when the heart blood vessels are blocked, it can lead to chest tightness and chest pain, especially for some people with coronary heart disease and high blood pressure, pay more attention.
In addition, if the blood vessels in the lungs are blocked, it will also affect the oxygen supply, which can lead to shortness of breath and asthma in the body, which is a “pulmonary embolism”. Signal, be vigilant.
