Most people usually associate cardiovascular problems with middle-aged to elderly adults. While less common, heart problems can afflict young people as well. Some of the common heart problems affecting young adults include arrhythmia or irregular heartbeat, heart muscle diseases and heart defects.
Sudden death in young people, often due to undiscovered heart defects or overlooked heart abnormalities, is rare. However, this does not mean that we should not take our hearts from granted. Moreover, many cardiovascular problems at a later stage of life are nurtured by poor choices while young. Live your live with a healthy heart by making the right choices and understanding your options to the appropriate cardiac investigations and therapeutic strategies.
