But when someone close to you dies suddenly for a mysterious reason, especially if he is a good young person, it is crucial to look for answers.

We often hear the phrase "he died suddenly." But we don’t know the circumstance that could lead to sudden death.

I had a friend I met at the university and year after year we became best friends, we used to go to work together and go out for a walk after work or sitting in some cafe.

Until that day came, the worst day of my life when my friend's mother called me and she was crying a lot.

She told me that he died!

I was shocked after hearing this news. My friend was with me only Four hours ago and he did not complain about anything, how he died suddenly like that.

I asked a doctor I knew, he told me that the causes of sudden death are many but the most common are hidden heart disease, in which the patient doesn't know anything about it or neglecting his symptoms without knowing its dangers.

So I decided to look into the problem deeper and more studying, so that I can share it with you to help you avoid what happened to my friend and be careful not to be repeated again.

Now we will talk about sudden death diseases, symptoms and how to avoid them. If there any signs of these symptoms you noticed on you, you should go to the doctor immediately.

1. Arrhythmia

sudden death

It is an abnormal heartbeat or rhythm. The heartbeat might be too quick, too slow or irregular. A deficiency of blood flow to the heart muscles can cause arrhythmia. 

An arrhythmia may last for a short time like about some minutes, or it might be extremely dangerous and causes sudden death.

Irregular heartbeat is unusual and can cause a blood clot or a heart attack in the person who is suffering from it and so sudden death.

If the person dies without any symptoms of any disease, or anything else that happens to the person, it seems obvious, the common cause of this condition is irregular heartbeat, especially "ventricular fibrillation or irregular ventricular tachycardia".

Causes

The causes of arrhythmia vary for each individual patient, depending on the person's lifestyle, whether the heartbeats are fast or slow, as well as due to the history of the person's health and environment, but there are several common causes of heart rhythm irregularities like birth defects, Cardiac abnormalities, and coronary artery disease.

Some physical diseases that affect the efficiency of the heart and its ability to work well, such as high blood pressure, increased cholesterol in the blood, as well as diabetes, thyroid disorder, and imbalance of electrolytes in the body.

Some drugs that affect the heart, especially drugs that include stimulants, as well as beverages containing caffeine, and soft drinks.

Warning Signs and Symptoms

There are many people who have a heart disorder and they do not know. Some patients with a family history of sudden cardiac arrest have an irregular heartbeat.

1-Feeling of dizziness

2-Feeling of shortness of breath

3-Unconsciousness

4-Sense of vertigo like dizziness

5-Feeling of palpitations


2. Stroke

Stroke is one of the causes of sudden death. A stroke is when your brain suffers lack of blood due to some blood clot, or when a rupture happens in the small blood vessels in your brain due to high blood pressure which is called hemorrhagic stroke.

Warning Signs and Symptoms

1-Sudden weakness or feeling numbness in the face, arm or foot, generally unilaterally

2-Sudden confusion, difficulty speaking or understanding

3-Sudden imbalance or adjustment

4-Sudden vision disorder in one or both eyes

5-Sudden severe headache without known cause

Do not wait until these symptoms are gone alone, and do not let the injured person go to the hospital alone. The sooner the medical treatment, the greater the probability of avoiding disability and sudden death caused by the stroke.


3. Heart Attack

High blood pressure Blood pressure measures the pressure of blood on the walls of your arteries. High blood pressure (hypertension) is when your heart muscle has to work harder than normal to pump blood through your arteries. 

It can weaken your artery walls, and increase your risk of heart disease. Your blood pressure target depends on your age and whether you have diabetes.

Warning Signs and Symptoms

1-Chest discomfort Pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain, burning or heaviness

2-Upper body discomfort Neck, jaw, shoulder, arms, back

3-Shortness of breath

4-Sweating

5-Nausea

6-Feeling like lightheaded

Diabetes and Heart Attacks

Diabetes is a condition that develops when the body does not make enough insulin or does not use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone. 

It breaks down sugar in the blood into energy for your body. If your body does not make enough insulin or cannot use it properly, then you will have high blood sugar. 

High blood sugar increases plaque buildup and narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis) which raises the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.


4. Sleep Apnea

It is a serious medical condition that can cause your breathing to stop and start many times while you sleep. 

There is a strong link between sleep apnea and high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. 

Even short pauses in breathing while you sleep are hard on the heart because they lower the amount of oxygen reaching the heart. It is important to treat sleep apnea, so talk with a healthcare professional if you think that you or your partner may have it


Prevention is always better than cure!

Consider three simple steps, lifestyle changes you probably should’ve made years ago, to lower your risk of sudden death.

1. Get a medical preventative screening

This is the most important preventative step you can take. 

Diet and lifestyle changes won’t alleviate your risk if your family has a history of stroke, Type 2 diabetes or carotid artery disease. 

So you should go to the doctor for a simple checkup for your heart health.

2. Find 3-4 hours each week to be physically active

Besides reducing risk factors like high blood pressure and cholesterol, exercise keeps your arteries flexible. 

Walk more each week while listening to some fun music like Zumba or just add a set of push-ups or sit-ups to your workout routine.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, increasing your level of physical activity by 3.5 hours per week can reduce your risk of stroke by almost 40 %, regardless of your age.

3. Try to stop smoking and alcohol

A person who smoke a pack a day are at increased risk of hypertension, plus their cardiovascular system is damaged by continued nicotine and carbon monoxide.

Making a plan to quit smoking is the first step, but following through is the toughest step.
