Speaking about the main causes of heart attack in winter, cardiologists Dr A. Eswaran and Dr K. Karthik from Kumaran Medical Center said that as the body needs to stay warm during the winter there will be a increased need for blood circulation. Thus, the heart works hard to circulate blood. The intense cold causes narrowing of the blood vessels. It also narrows the blood vessel that supplies the heart.
Due to these actions, the heart gets tired during the winter, which could be one of the reasons for the increased risk of heart attack.
As sweating decreases during the winter, the body’s salt and water content increases. This leads to an increase in blood pressure in the body. It is also an important reason for causing a heart attack in winter. In the cold season, hormonal changes occur in the body, which will lead to a high risk of causing a blood clot. Due to the cold winter, many people do not wake up early in the morning and skip their regular exercise. Skipping their regular physical activities also increases the risk of a heart attack. Usually the winter season stimulates the appetite. Therefore, many people eat a lot, and certain unhealthy eating habits can lead to a high risk of heart attack.
Instructions given by cardiologists to prevent heart disease in winter are given below
The elderly – who have less muscle mass, cannot stand the intense cold. Hence, it leads to heart disease.

People who skip their regular exercise also lead to a heart attack.
