Heart failure is a disease that kills millions of people worldwide every year.
In this disease, the heart is unable to supply blood to the body properly and gradually leads to death.
But it is up to you to avoid it and make it a habit to use just the right amount of water.
This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United States.
Research conducted by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has found that adequate water intake can reduce the risk of heart failure.
Research has shown that the habit of drinking adequate amounts of water throughout one's life not only supports vital bodily functions but can also reduce the risk of future heart problems.
Researchers also say that the habit of drinking adequate amounts of water, like using salt, helps our heart and can reduce the risk of heart disease on a long-term basis.
The study examined data from more than 15,000 people between the ages of 45 and 66 who were part of a medical study from 1987 to 1989 and shared their medical details for the next 25 years.
The new study focused on how many people did not suffer from obesity, diabetes or heart failure at the beginning of the previous study and drank adequate amounts of water.
About 12,000 people in the previous study were included in the analysis, of whom 1336 were diagnosed with heart failure.
Researchers then analyzed the extent to which dehydration increases the risk of heart failure.
They found that drinking less water in middle age increased the risk of heart failure by 39% in later life.
Serum sodium levels were measured for dehydration, which increases when fluid levels in the body decrease.
The researchers said that a controlled trial was needed to confirm these findings, but preliminary evidence suggests that drinking adequate amounts of water may be helpful in preventing or slowing down the negative changes in the heart. Is.
"Serum sodium and water intake can be easily monitored and it may be easier for doctors to identify patients for whom drinking more water may be helpful," researchers said.
The results of the study were published in the medical journal European Heart Journal
