Is the Elderly More Likely to Get the HHD?

Q:
My friends were diagnosed as the hypertensive heart disease one by one in this year. Yeah, we are a little bit fat. But we exercise every day. Is it out of the age?
A:
To some extent, I would say yes.

The elderly is more likely to get the HHD. Since you age, so do your blood vessels. The blood vessels of the older people are less flexible so that the blood cannot flow through in an instant and sufficient way. More fatty deposits may occur, making you highly possible to get the heart disease.
So it’s important to avoid obesity, unhealthy diet and all bad lifestyles.
