Characteristics for each blood vessel

 

Blood vessels are the gateway to health. From head to toe, our body is densely connected with large and small blood vessels. Blood from the heart circulates through the blood vessels and then returns to the heart. During this process, oxygen and nutrients are supplied to all parts of the body, and waste products generated from the metabolic process of cells are discharged. For physical health, blood vessels must be well connected without blockage, and the flow must be smooth.

 

 

What kind of problems do blood circulation disorders caused in our bodies?

 

Blood circulation is the source of life. Just as a city is a mess when roads or water and sewer are blocked, so does blood circulation. The beginning and end of blood vessels is the heart. The left ventricle of the heart → aorta → capillaries in the body → vena cava → right atrium of the heart If there is a problem in the blood circulation, which is the flow of blood, various functions of the body decrease and aging proceeds. As blood vessels age, so does my body.

 

It’s frightening that you don’t know when and how your blood circulation disorder will appear. If blood vessels such as the brain, heart, limbs, and kidneys exist, abnormalities can appear anywhere in our body. If blood circulation is disturbed for various reasons, the body’s organs cannot function properly due to insufficient or interrupted supply of oxygen and nutrients in the body. This is why you need to pay attention to your blood vessel health on a regular basis. Relatively mild blood circulation disorders can be improved or alleviated with over-the-counter medications.

 

 

Characteristics for each blood vessel

 

Depending on the type of blood vessel, the right drug is different. There are two main points to consider when treating blood circulation disorders. First, you need to determine which blood vessel is causing the problem. Blood vessels are divided into arteries, veins, and capillaries. Although they look similar on the outside as a passageway through which blood flows, the thickness and elasticity of the blood vessels and the shape of the walls of blood vessels differ depending on the work they do. The causes of blood circulation disorders, as well as the symptoms and treatment methods, are different. It means that the medicine you need to take is different depending on whether the blood vessel is arterial or venous.

 

Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body. When lipids such as cholesterol accumulate and narrow the inner walls of blood vessels, blood flow decreases and blood circulation disorders appear. Arterial blood circulation disorder is characterized by numbness and tingling pain and paralysis.

 

If the blood circulation to the micro arteries is not smooth, cold hands and feet can cause cold hands and feet, numbness, or severe fatigue. Decreased memory and concentration and complaints of dizziness. In particular, if you suffer from chronic diseases such as hyperlipidemia and diabetes for a long time, blood circulation is poor. Therefore, treatment is needed to improve symptoms. Taking medicines that help arterial blood circulation for about 3 months will help alleviate mild blood circulation disorders. It removes factors that narrow blood vessels or improves blood flow in arterial vessels.

 

Drugs that improve the symptoms of arterial blood circulation disorders include ▶ Ginkgo leaf extract that improves blood circulation in peripheral arterial vessels (Ginexin F tablet, Tanamin tablet, Circulan soft capsule, etc.) ▶ Antiplatelet agent that inhibits platelet aggregation (low-dose aspirin), etc.

 

However, arteries are closely related to heart and brain health, so the severity must be carefully monitored. If the coronary arteries passing through the heart or the carotid arteries connected to the brain are narrowed, it can worsen into angina pectoris and cerebral infarction. It is an emergency if you do not recognize that it is serious, but you have chest and head pain, expressionless face, shortness of breath, and paralysis of one arm or leg. You need to go to a hospital and get professional treatment.

 

Conversely, veins, the blood vessels that run back to the heart from the ends of the body, such as the legs, are caused by stretched walls of the blood vessels or problems with the valves in the veins that control blood flow. Blood does not flow and pools in one place, causing the venous blood vessels to swell.

 

Most of the symptoms of venous circulation appear in the legs. The elasticity of the venous vessels decreases, the legs swell well, and even a short walk causes severe fatigue. Varicose veins and hemorrhoids that protrude from the leg veins are also a type of venous blood circulation disorder. For reference, when there is arterial blood circulation disorder, cold hands and feet are severe, but when venous blood circulation disorder occurs, blood flows to the feet and becomes warmer.

 

For venous blood circulation disorders, drugs that strengthen the elasticity of loose venous blood vessels, such as grape leaf extract (Antistax tablet, Antax capsule, etc.) or Centella Asiatica extract (Sencia, etc.), are suitable. When the elasticity of the veins returns, the valves also restore their function, and the blood circulation function of the veins is restored. There is also a study result that patients who took Centella Asiatica extract for one month improved symptoms of venous circulation disorders such as pain, paresthesia, convulsions, and dullness by more than 70%. Leg swelling was also significantly reduced. Before taking the drug, the calf circumference decreased from 31.93 cm to 30.99 cm after taking the drug, and the ankle decreased from 23.42 cm to 22.28 cm.

 

Clogging of important blood vessels, such as carotid arteries and cardiac arrhythmias, is fatal

Second, the severity of the symptoms and the urgency of treatment. You may think that circulatory disorders do not require urgent treatment, but this is a misconception. A blockage of an important blood vessel, whether it be arteries or veins, can put your life at risk. Cerebrovascular diseases such as stroke are a typical example. When the carotid artery, the blood vessel that goes from the heart to the brain, or the thin blood vessels in the brain become blocked, the oxygen supply stops. Brain cells can quickly deteriorate and progress to an irreversible state. The same is true for cardiac arrhythmias. If a blood clot (blood clot) flows into the pulmonary artery and blocks it, it can be dangerous for a pulmonary embolism.

 

Blood vessels do not have pain cells. Therefore, there are no symptoms until more than 70% of the blood vessels are blocked, so it is easy to be indifferent to blood vessel health. Even the outward symptoms do not appear to be serious. It is the degree to which a person temporarily loses consciousness and then recovers or loses sensation. Sudden chest pain, severe headaches, or facial paralysis are signs that an important, life-threatening blood vessel is being blocked. This is especially true if you have a family member suffering from cardiovascular disease. You must visit a hospital immediately to inform them of the symptoms and seek professional treatment. Blood circulation improving drugs should be used as an auxiliary means to improve the symptoms of mild vascular disorders.
