Disease prevention and treatment

Bad breath is a sign of a deadly disease, learn about the underlying condition to prevent it now

Cholesterol is a greasy molecule produced by the liver that serves a variety of functions in the body, including the production of hormones and the formation of cell membranes. Having too much of a good thing, on the other hand, will increase your chances of having a heart attack or a stroke.

High cholesterol raises the risk of cardiovascular illness, such as heart attack or myocardial infarction, which can cause shortness of breath and other symptoms.

Coronary artery disease occurs when an excess of LDL cholesterol forms plaque in the heart's tiny arteries, narrowing and stiffening them.

This decreases blood flow, making a person fatigued or short of breath. Angina, nausea, and excessive weariness are some typical symptoms. When it comes to food, there are a few foods that can unexpectedly elevate your cholesterol levels.

Food causing high cholesterol

1. Pizza

2. Coconut oil

3. Ground turkey

4. Whole fat dairy products

5. Pastries like pies

How does high cholesterol affect breath?

Gum disease is a gum infection that can extend to the teeth and jaw bone if left untreated, eventually resulting in tooth loss. You might not assume these two health conditions are related at first glance.

Inflammation causes arteries to stiffen as a result of swelling in the bloodstream. The ability of blood to flow freely through the veins is affected by this disorder.

Gum disease is indicated by swelling of the gums. Not only is blood flow through the gums obstructed, limiting appropriate oxygen and nutrient transfer, but the swollen gums have also pulled away from the teeth, allowing bacteria to enter beneath the gum line.

Both of these problems must be addressed. When gum disease is correctly treated, germs hidden behind the gums, in the teeth, and in the bone are eradicated. Bacteria are unable to spread throughout the body as a result of this. It's critical to look after your mouth, as well as your heart and body.

Following periodontal treatment, appropriate oral hygiene is necessary to maintain oral health and reduce the chance of new gum disease developing in the future. Cholesterol levels can be reduced with the help of a doctor. A good diet and regular exercise, both of which can help with gum health, can also help.

Regular dental appointments are essential for detecting gum disease early and preventing it from worsening. As a result, the rest of your body can stay healthy as well. It's critical to speak with your dentist about any other health concerns you have.
