Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure, sometimes simply called heart failure, occurs when your heart no longer has the ability to pump a sufficient amount of blood throughout your body. This can prevent your other organs from receiving the life-giving nutrients and oxygen carried by your blood. Thankfully, you can eliminate certain risk factors from your lifestyle to help deter heart failure.

One risk factor that can increase your chances for developing congestive heart failure is hypertension, or high blood pressure. While a lack of a healthy diet and exercise can contribute to hypertension, it can also result from medication such as YAZ. YAZ, also called Yasmin or Ocella, is an oral contraceptive that has been linked to serious health issues such as hypertension. If you now have hypertension due to taking YAZ, contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187 to learn more about your legal options.

Hypertension and Heart Failure

Hypertension is blood pressure that is elevated beyond normal levels. With high blood pressure, your heart must work harder to push the life-giving fluid through your arteries. This causes your heart to enlarge as the muscle thickens. While this may sound like a stronger heart, it can actually make your heart weak or stiff over a long period of time, decreasing its ability to pump blood.

Complications from Congestive Heart Failure

As blood flow decreases from congestive heart failure, you can suffer from several major complications, including:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Liver problems
  • Kidney damage
  • Problems with heart valves
