I am. In terms of the number of people affected, the number of cancer patients in 2020 is
approximately 1 million. On the other hand, the number of heart failure patients is approximately 1.2 million, far more than cancer, and it is said that the number will reach more than 1.3 million nationwide by 2030. Although it is a disease that often occurs in the elderly, the number of cases in which it develops in younger people has increased in recent years due to lifestyle changes such as an unbalanced diet consisting of only meat and no vegetables, overeating, lack of exercise, and smoking.
This book covers the necessary information to choose the treatment that suits each individual, including prevention for each stage from the onset of heart failure to recurrence, life after surgery, diet and exercise, and finances.
“The end result of heart disease” is heart failure
Heart failure is a condition in which the function of the heart gradually declines, causing shortness of breath and swelling of the legs and face, which shortens lifespan. Heart failure is not a single disease, but a condition that eventually develops when the heart is overburdened by various heart diseases (heart disease). It refers to the terminal image (final state) of any heart disease. The “result of heart disease” is called heart failure.
Therefore, if you want to prevent the onset of heart failure, you must treat the underlying heart disease.

However, there have been significant advances in the treatment of heart failure, and it has become clear that medication can improve symptoms, reduce the number of hospitalizations, and extend lifespan.
What kind of disease is heart failure?
Heart diseases that cause heart failure include angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, heart valve disease, and arrhythmia. It is important to properly examine and treat the underlying disease. Currently, heart failure is divided into four stages, A to D.

Heart failure is divided into two stages before onset: stage A (preliminary stage of heart failure) and stage B (pre-stage of heart failure), and two stages after the onset of stage C (heart failure for which treatment is effective) and stage D (heart failure that is difficult to cure). It progresses in a total of 4 stages. Efforts to avoid progressing to Stage A are primary prevention (improving and maintaining lifestyle habits), efforts to prevent progression to Stage B are primary prevention (preventing heart disease), and efforts to prevent progression to Stage C are secondary prevention. Tertiary prevention (preventing heart failure from occurring for the first time) and preventing it from progressing to stage D (preventing heart failure from recurring).
