Cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) can be a general term for heart or blood vessel conditions.
It is sometimes associated with an accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis) and an exaggerated risk of blood clots.
It may even be associated with artery injury in organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys, and eyes.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the most common causes of death and disability in the UK of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, but it will usually be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.
