Lose their jobs can give a heart attack

Lose their job you can give a heart attack - quite literally.

Researchers at Duke University have found that unemployment significantly increases the risk of a heart attack. That the risk increases with each loss of employment and increasing time unemployed, according to a study in the archives of internal medicine published.

In fact, a job loss grew the risk of a heart attack by 35 percent, while four workstations increased the risk by 63 percent. Unemployed were within one year after a layoff or firing most at risk of a heart attack.

The author of Matthew E. Dupre, Associate Professor of Duke and senior fellow at the University's senior study says "look at a life of risk by the frequency of occurrence a person lost a job through a social stressor such as unemployment - or how much time they are without work - is an independent association with myocardial infarction," Center for the study of aging.

Dupre says that he and his colleagues were somewhat surprised by their results, as she was known and suspected risk factors, such as high blood pressure and loss of health insurance.

"The fact that the associations despite more than a dozen are suspected risk factors remained largely unchanged, something was unexpected", he says. "Changes in income, health insurance, health behavior, physical health status and the like had little influence on the risks associated with unemployment. Instead we found that the risks associated with multiple workstations of the extent of the other established risk factors, such as smoking, high blood pressure and diabetes were."

For the new study researchers under the microscope taken health and work histories of 13.451 adults aged 51 to 64. detailed stories covered whole 18 years, where total 1061 suffered heart attacks voluntary study.

At the beginning, 14 percent of the volunteers were unemployed. 69.7 Percent has lost one or more jobs in the course of the study.

Heart experts said that the study adds to the mounting evidence that certain types of stressors may increase the risk of a cardiovascular event ramp.

"This is add to know what we are in reference to the triggers of heart cardiovascular events," says Dr. John Schindler, Assistant Professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "Many years ago we thought this as a random process. Now we see there are real, whether environmental or stress trigger perceived. "

Recent studies by numerous emotional trigger, frustration, depression and anxiety, including powered up the Center, says Saha. He adds, "and those who go along with unemployment,".

So, what is it about the job loss that could raise the risk of a heart attack?

"There are probably several mechanisms, the significant socio-economic pressure, link, to an increased risk of cardiovascular events, including unemployed" says Dr. Eliot Corday preventive cardiology UCLA professor of heart cycle medicine and science at the University of California, Los Angeles, Eliot Corday Professor of heart cycle medicine and science at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Co-Director of the program. "Include persistent activation of the part of the nervous system during stress and stress-related hormones decreased in heart healthy behaviors to avoid health care visits and actions, and not immediate seek medical, if there are early warning signs."

What the study shows, experts say that one is in times of stress, such as such as loss of employment, to pay extra attention to your heart.

"My conclusion is that we should be focused always in our hearts, because as a potentially deadly disease cardiovascular disease is potentially," Schindler said. "But because we are more vulnerable to losing a job, the first year at this time you should still diligently about heart and cardiovascular health."

Future research could examine whether risk may reduce emotional support.

"Whether cardiovascular risk with unemployment also through psychological support cover and several jobs could be reduced or further investigation requires advanced social resources," says Fonarow.
