What are the most common cardiac problems in Pakistan?

Heart diseases are the leading cause of death globally, and Pakistan is no exception. The challenges facing Pakistan pertaining to heart disease are not just due to lack of access to quality health infrastructure, but other variants also increase the disease burden of the country.

There is a lack of adequate policy with regards to curbing the risk factors. This is compounded by the dearth of quality data with regards to the prevalence of the disease in the public and the risk factors.

There is also the issue of demographics; the population living in rural areas with low literacy rates, poverty, and lack of access to healthcare has a greater risk of heart disease.

Moreover, the general lack of awareness about how to make healthy lifestyle choices also, therefore, increases the prevalence of risk factors like smoking.

According to research conducted by Barolia and Sayani, a significant portion of the adult population faces conditions that increase their risk factors for heart disease. The top 5 risk factors are:

Risk factors

% Prevalence in adult population

Hypertension

41.0

Tobacco

21.0

Obesity

High cholesterol

Diabetes
