Auntie Fee

The recent untimely deaths of Internet stars Auntie Fee (pictured above) and Q Worldstar serve as reminders that heart disease is the number 1 killer of men and women in the U.S.

For many people the first sign or symptom of heart disease is death. This is why heart disease is called the silent killer.

According to the CDC in Atlanta, 610,000 people die from heart disease in the United States every year. 17.5 million people died from heart disease around the world in 2012 alone.

heart diagram

The heart is a large muscle located in the center of the chest and slightly toward the left side of the sternum or breastbone. The heart is a pump that collects oxygen-poor blood and exchanges it for oxygen-rich blood, which is pumped out to the body.

The average adult body contains about 6 quarts of blood. The body's entire volume of blood cycles through the heart every 16 minutes.

heart diagram

The heart consists of 4 chambers -- the 2 atria (right atrium, left atrium) and 2 ventricles.

Here's what happens each time your heart beats: Oxygen-poor blood from the body pours into the right atrium via the superior and inferior vena cavas. When the heart rests the blood drains into the right ventricle through a valve. When the heart contracts (beats), the right ventricle pumps oxygen-poor blood to the lungs via the pulmonary arteries. The blood picks up oxygen in the lungs and returns to the left atrium via the pulmonary veins. When the heart contracts, the left ventricle pumps oxygen-rich blood out to the body through the aorta to supply oxygen and nutrients to the other vital organs such as the brain, liver and kidneys.

The video below will explain this process more clearly.

Blood pressure measurement is a very important tool to help clinicians diagnose hypertension that can lead to heart disease. There are two types of blood pressure measurements: arterial and venous.

Central venous pressure (CVP) is usually measured in an inpatient setting.

Arterial blood pressure is the most common blood pressure measurement. It is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) with a blood pressure cuff device and a stethoscope. Electric and battery operated models are available for home use.

Normal blood pressure is 120/80.

The top number is called systole or systolic, which is usually less than 120. The bottom number is called diastole or diastolic, which is usually less than 80.

The systolic (top) number measures the pressure inside the arteries when the heart (ventricles) contracts. The diastolic (bottom) number measures the pressure between beats when the heart is at rest.

If blood pressure is consistently elevated above 140/95 mm Hg (hypertension), it can lead to heart disease, heart attack and stroke.

heart diagram

Your coronary arteries lie outside the heart and feeds the heart muscle with oxygen and nutrients. Plaque buildup inside the coronary arteries is called atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries (heart disease or coronary artery disease).

Plaque consists of deposits of fat, cholesterol, calcium, fibrin, and other waste products that are not filtered by your kidneys.

This buildup of plaque can go undetected for years because there are usually no signs or symptoms.

The plaque buildup causes hardening or narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis), which slowly blocks the flow of blood to the heart muscle.

It's worth mentioning again that this buildup of plaque can go undetected for years because there usually are no signs or symptoms. That's why monitoring your blood pressure and checking your LDL "bad" cholesterol level are so important!

If the plaque ruptures inside the artery, white blood cells rush to the site to form a clot. As the clot grows it occludes the blood vessel completely, resulting in tissue death of the heart muscle (myocardial infarction). This is also referred to as a heart attack.

Factors such as hypertension, smoking or high cholesterol can damage the inner lining of blood vessels.

You should call 911 or go to the emergency room ASAP if you experience any of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Chest pain (angina)
  • Pain radiating to left arm
  • Shortness of breath with or without exertion
  • Coughing
  • Cold sweats and night sweats
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Palpitations (rapid heartbeat)
  • Rapid breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Disorientation (from lack of oxygen)
  • Jugular vein distention (see explanation below)
  • Blue fingertips or lips
  • Cold fingers
  • Swelling in the legs and feet
  • Fatigue or weakness

  • heart diagram

    Jugular vein distention (JVD) is one of the signs of heart disease or heart failure. Jugular vein distention usually presents as a rope like bulge on the side of the neck (see photo above). The jugular vein is distended because of increased venous pressure in the large veins going to the right side of the heart.

    If you are 40, don't exercise, are a smoker and drinker, and you eat fatty, fried foods from fast food restaurants, your chances of being diagnosed with heart disease or atherosclerosis increases significantly.

    Once you develop plaques in your arteries, they are generally there to stay. Your doctor can place a metal mesh stent in your artery through a thin tube in your arm or leg. This outpatient procedure is called an angioplasty.

    The stent can keep the artery walls open and prevent more plaque buildup, but the stent cannot prevent future heart attacks. Plaque can buildup anywhere in your body. If the plaque breaks off and travels to your brain or lungs it can cause a stroke.

    You can prevent heart attacks by reducing or controlling lifestyle risks that lead to atherosclerosis:

  • Quit smoking
  • Control high cholesterol
  • Monitor high blood pressure and take your BP meds
  • Control diabetes
  • Reduce stress
  • Eat fruits and vegetables throughout the day
  • Limit alcohol intake (one drink for women, 1 or 2 drinks for men)
  • Exercising daily (talk to your doctor first)

      Trump doesn't care about black people

    • Chuck

      This is good to know. Thanks for sharing. RIP Ms. Fee.

    • Erin Blockabitch

      The people I've known who died of heart attacks were in their 20's or no older than 30. I find it interesting how heart health isn't emphasized to younger Americans, especially when they are more inclined to have poor diets, don't exercise, are overweight and do not always schedule regular doctor's visits like a lot of older Americans. Some of them are under tremendous stress just trying to establish themselves professionally.

      Health is wealth. Without your health, you really don't have much.

    • bhavana

      You're inappropriate.

    • Erin Blockabitch

      I don't believe he cares about anyone who isn't in his family or a cabinet appointee. If people don't exist for his benefit, he considers them disposable.

    • CrunchyBlack1

      phew, i dont know what im doing but everytime i go to see my PCP. they always laud me with praises for being so well below average in those areas. Thank God

    • A D N

      Didn't Steve Harvey warn you all about this...lol.

    • A D N

      We have to do better...in all areas...stress, diet and exercise. We need more sexx if anything...sexx helps.

    • hottlanta

      Wow a medical minute before Trumpcare becomes law. Too late now we can't afford to go to the doctor.

    • hottlanta

      Yep sex does help realize stress and makes the mind a lot clearer when you be hearing the birds singing and stuff. All kinds of bad stuff be going on but you get high from good sex you don't even care.

    • CrunchyBlack1

      sex helps unless you're engaging in it to fulfill some addiction. when it becomes something you feel you have to be doing, its not as beneficial.

    • Erin Blockabitch

      You probably practice the art of moderation. That works, especially as it pertains to the consumption of food and certain things like alcohol. There's a difference between being satiated and being stuffed.

    • KDub

      Waits for all of the doctors, medical professionals, ambulamps drivers, hospilah cafe workers, you NAME it...to come out with their medical expertise.

    • A D N

      Responsibility is key lol. Seriously, people aren't getting enough sexx. I can tell when I need it because I become agitated.

    • A D N

      So true. Seems like we can handle things a lil better.

    • KDub

      I named about 5 ways downstairs. Steve Harvey post. From discrim. against them in rental practices (which is documented not once, but twice) saying a black protester deserved to be beat up...etc.

    • CrunchyBlack1

      when i go for a while without it, i dont think my mood changes. when i do get it, i have noticed i want to get out more and do stuff lol

    • CrunchyBlack1

      cool!

      "Yep sex does help realize stress and makes the mind a lot clearer..."
      --------------

      Actually, during an orgasm, the blood is rerouted from the brain to the groin area to sustain an erect penis or clitoris. That's why it seems like the brain is clearer and you sleep like a baby after you orgasm.

    • hottlanta

      I thought that the reason I wanna sleep like a baby was because he was banging. Sandra thanks for the medical minute. Now tell Dump to get some and chill out on the 5m twitter mess. Bang your wife and go to sleep.

    • CrunchyBlack1

      so that explains that euphoric 30 or so odd secs immediately after you know what lol

    • hottlanta

      That is why folks sometimes say when a person is a serial complainer and grouch they need sex to calm them down.

      Thank you, Auntie. Heart disease is real. I've had high blood pressure for years and I stay on my meds to keep it under control.

    • Cricket404

      Science can be strange. I don't understand heart attacks vs panic attacks. Doctor told me that heart attacks involve blockage, so the questions is will a blockage occur suddenly? I think Carrie Fischer died of a panic attack, which she was known to have in stressful situations. I was prescribed medicine for heart attacks(betablockers) while suffering a prolonged panic attack when a pit bull ran up on me in my driveway.

      P.S.--- that preview of Matt talking about him and Kenya getting busy in the truck.

    • BishesDntGtIt

      After being diagnosed with heart disease 3 years ago I can say this post is spot on. Please make sure y'all take care of yourself

    • Buttercup

      I think Kenya meant well for once, but I think she's the LAST person who should host a divorce party for the reason that Phaedra said. Only 2 years ago she accused this lady's then-husband of trying to get with her then want to host the divorce party. Out of order.

      I love hot fries. I eat it with my Chicago mix popcorn. ?

    • missmiami305

      I didny believe in panic attacks until started having them. It was so bad that i was medicated. Kicked the meds but the panic attacks seem to be creeping back up. Panic attacks are real. Sometimes i lay in bed deathly afraid out of nowhere. The mind is powerful

    • rayne215

      I feel like fast food revenue is going down, no one i know eats wendys, mcdonalds etc like they did back in the day. more healthier choices are availible that wasnt there before. except for chick fi la, people eat there like its God's gift to fast food

    • Buttercup

      Tell that to the 34 year old who will eat leftover take out and put the empty container back in the fridge. I never imagined food would bring me so close to snapping.

      The Trump chickens are coming home to roost. NYTimes says:

      "Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said agents would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.”

      "Counterintelligence investigations are among the F.B.I.’s most difficult and time-consuming cases, meaning the cloud of a federal investigation could hang over the Trump administration for years."

      Cynthia and Peter are interesting. I can actually see her not being interested in being a wife. Gave me a different view of their relationship. Kinda.

      Kandi wasn't as irritating. But she is still full of ish to me.

      Porsha's dude is interesting to me. Idk. Sometimes they are cute. But then sometimes he really gives me a bum vibe.

      I think they are all full of BS. Minutes after I said that gives me pause. Someone said it could be years.

      Someone will go down, not sure if it's Trump, HE will not be elected again. after he finishes ruining the system further into the ground and fingering DC and the world.

    • KDub

      THIS. I was like whatever lady. It just read real EXTRA damn catty chile. Like she couldnt WAIT to "tell it".

      "First, I would like to respond by saying yes, she can still make up the assignments at anytime. She is a very respectful student and is always eager to learn.
      However, I have noticed that she has become relaxed in my class. She enjoys having conversations with her best-friend and loves to converse about boys. If you can speak with her about staying focused in class and not letting the latest news distract her from her purpose in my class, I would greatly appreciate it. I know that she will go on to do great things in her life, she is so intelligent and has a bright future ahead of her. Thanks in advance for
      speaking with her. I hope you have a great day!"

    • Ms.Caramel

      Damn... While I agree the teacher should have addressed your child's situation earlier... Your attitude is unacceptable. Saying you don't care if she's talking in class and to catch you outside is exactly why our kids are so lost today. Parents are so quick to call an educator out their name and insight violence rather than address the problem with educated truth. I know you didn't actually say those things but you were thinking them and no doubt conveyed that to your child. Your child will most likely grow up with the same attitude as you which is sad. Parents, please stop this foolish way of thinking.

      Nope. Im normally one to call my kid the entire hell OUT she up there not doing wtf SHE needs to do. My mother. She an enabler. My sister got away with murder due to her being bipolar. And ALOT of it wasnt her being bipolar. She was just a bad ass student. I do not play that whole my kid is always right. I hate teachers whom YOU NEVER hear from when your kids is doing GOOD. My kid was a straight A student the first quarter and an A/B student the second with two B's. Rest A's. I aint hear from NOBODY when she was straight A's. So nope. Now she got a few B's thrown in and everyone has something to say. Not with it

      I wish PEP8 would stop talking. Every parent teacher its "she's still talking" since 2+ years followed by "but she made the A honor roll" At this point I talked in school, my mama talked in school because unfortunately, KIDS TALK IN SCHOOL. It's not right but they are kids. That's why they have to be taught. I check up daily because I drop and pick her up. It's never a complaint until report card. Her teacher is Black and she always says, she's better.

      **********
      I'm over it. From Pre-k 3 to 3rd grade now. She talks. I told her let her draw, color, SOMETHING because like me, her brain doesn't turn off. She will talk to ANYONE that talks back and she has been with these same kids since she was 2+.

    • Misslaydj

      My dad passed away in his sleep at 59 years in September. Never knew he wasn't taking care of himself until he was admitted into the ER 3 weeks prior. Spoke to Dr. He had an enlarged heart, pressure 200 over something and pre diabetic. Spoke to Dad and he chuckles and says I know, sugar I know, Daddy has been bad. Body swollen from the fluid build up. He could barely breathe. You could hear him breathing while he was wide awake. Told me he could not remember the last time he ever seen a primary care dr. 2 days before he died I was helping him fill out his medical leave paper work for his job and getting him a visiting nurse. Paperwork was due and I couldn’t reach him so my sister went to check on him and there he was sound “asleep” in bed. I'm so on top of my husband now making sure he sees EVERY dr. Even sit in the room with him. Nothing like seeing your dad pulled out of his home in an orange body bag from the coroner. Take care of yourself folks. USE your insurance!!!!

    • Buttercupdreamsmom

      Lawd I'm going through it with my 3yrold... She constantly talks in class (she gets it honestly though ??? lol).. But she won't do her work even though she is hella smart. I send her to my aunt house to do the work she won't do in class... She does it with flying colors.. She gets in class and it's like she had amnesia.. Lol lol... I know it's only K3 but I gotta nip that in the bud

    • PettyEyezPrime

      I hope you find a solution, I never did. I tried everything. Ask her why she doesn't do it in school. You'd be surprised at her response.

    • Buttercupdreamsmom

      Did she get better as she got older. My problem is my kid KNOWS all of this. She says every morning "mommy.. I go to school to do my work and not talk to xyz" lol I pick her up and it's "Lil buttercup dream had been running her mouth and not doing her work" ?????

    • Cali

      So sad, the only positive ( and I use that loosely) is that he passed in his sleep vs a tortureous slow painful death. It took my stepdad years to pass away in a hospice for the same issues; pre-diabetic, heart disease, severly overweight and then he developed prostate cancer that finally ended it, but it was like a domino effect of events.

    • nucynu25

      Are you from where ?

    • PettyEyezPrime

      NO! She is 8 and still talks. ALL THE TIME. Her work has never been an issue and she doesn't get into "trouble". Just won't be quiet. I say start with small things that she enjoys even at 3. Tell her that if she wants to play with cuz when she comes home, she must 1st do well in school. I gave up because she came 1st in spelling bee last year, 2nd the year before and 3rd the year before that, makes the A honor roll every marking period and her lowest grade is an 89. I can't fight THAT particular battle anymore.

      Thank you all for the kind words... There were no signs at all. From what his wife said, he got up to make a sandwich around 3am and she found him when she woke up at 7am. No pain or discomfort according to her. He lived a rough lifestyle and who's to say it could have been prevented if he kept himself healthy and had regular check ups. Heart disease ran in his family ?

    • Cricket404

      Carrie passed from cardiac arrest, a malfunction of the heart not involving blockage. Reports said before passing out she had trouble breathing (hyperventilating) and swallowing (throat lock) which are my symptoms from a panic attack. While panic attacks starts with a thought, the brain spontaneously panics and sends messages to the pituary gland to release epinephrine/adrenaline into the bloodstrem. The rush of hormones causes the heart to race uncontrollably. While having a panic attack, I can literally feel the drops of epinephrine above my stomach, feels like I'm drinking water on an empty stomach. Seconds later my finger tips have a tingling sensation then my heart races so hard my chest aches. I sweat profusely then pass out cold. My EKG was off the charts, after the beta blockers it came down. This was all from being frightened, so I believe a person can be scared to death. I also think drug users like Whitney (coronary artery disease), Bobbi K. (cardiac arrest) and MJ (cardiac arrest) died from drug induced panic which turned into arrest when the wheels came off (expression from my cardiologist).

    • Cricket404

      Bless your heart, they are so real. I've had minor and major attacks. One major one was me running late for an appointment and getting stuck in traffic. I pulled over passed out and woke up while vomiting, my heart races for 2 days and didn't stop until I wwnr to emergency I get minor pappilations from long lines in the grocery store- impatience. I can't do the drugs either, I do yoga and Pilates for calm thoughts.
