Work Stress Gives You Heart Disease
People who report work-related stress are more likely to be hospitalised for peripheral artery disease compared to those who don’t have work-related stress, says research published in the ‘Journal of the American Heart Association’, an open access journal of the American Heart Association. Symptoms often include leg pain
while walking. Left untreated, peripheral artery disease increases the likelihood of heart disease. Stress is associated with increased inflammation and higher blood glucose levels. So, stress could be contributing to complications and exacerbations of peripheral artery disease. Men who hold higher positions and those who smoke are at a greater risk.
