With a statement from Medipol Mega University Hospital, warnings were made against the risks of heart attack.
Head of Cardiology Department Prof. Dr. Bilal Boztosun stated that increased inactivity and improper nutrition caused changes in the daily lives of individuals due to the epidemic.
Underlining the importance of preventive medicine here, Boztosun said the following:
"Changes you make in your life save lives. Risks increase in heart attack, especially when genetics come into play. Primary prevention is very important for those with a family history of heart disease. Cardiovascular attacks are directly related to changes in people's lifestyle in recent years, except for genetic codes. / p>
Ready and processed food consumption and inactivity increased due to the consumption frenzy. Increased TV viewing time has also significantly affected how much we move. Even the work we do is more sedentary and requires less physical activity than in previous years. So much has changed in the last few years that we, as a doctor, are not surprised that young heart attacks have increased. "
- "One of the biggest risk factors of heart attack, increasing cases of type 2 diabetes"
Stating that type 2 diabetes is one of the leading causes of heart attack in young people, Boztosun stated that one of the biggest risk factors in heart attack is the increasing cases of type 2 diabetes.

"Weight gain and obesity are accompanied by reduced physical activity, ie a sedentary lifestyle. Over the past 10 years, advanced age has been one of the biggest risk factors for heart attack and typically affects men over 50 and women over 65. In a study conducted with men who had a heart attack at the age of only 36 years on average, we see that 30 percent died within 15 years.In another study on men and women who had a heart attack before the age of 40, the risk of death in a year was 1 percent, Unfortunately, 25 percent were lost in less than 15 years.
Therefore, this patient group should be followed especially closely and lifestyle changes such as smoking and diabetes should be followed very closely. In recent years, heart attacks have become common, especially in young men between the ages of 20 and 30. In particular, the change in life style caused by the epidemic period poses a risk for people who are genetically prone to heart diseases. "
