Heart, Blood and Circulatory System

The heart, blood and circulatory system move nutrients, gases, and wastes, to and from cells. They help keep the body alive and healthy and fit to fight disease.

Many heart diseases and circulatory system diseases can be life threatening, and our support group of doctors and patients will enable you to find the help you need.

High Density Lipoproteins

High density lipoproteins are lipoproteins that can carry cholesterol from the arteries to the liver for excretion. (Lipoproteins are the form in which fatty substances (lipids) are carried in the blood.) High density lipoproteins (HDLs) cholesterol is therefore the ‘good’ cholestrol.

Join our online group on high-density lipoproteins to ask your questions to the experts and learn more.

High Cholesterol / Hypercholesterolemia

The cholesterol in a person's blood originates from two major sources, dietary intake and liver production. Often named the ‘enigma’ chemical, cholesterol can work to our benefit or awaken the worst health nightmares.

Learn more about good and bad cholesterol, clogging of arteries and healthy diets through this support group.

Hypertension / High Blood Pressure

Hypertension also referred to as high blood pressure, HTN or HPN, is a medical condition in which the blood pressure is chronically elevated.

Leucopenia

Leucopenia is a decrease in the number of white blood cells (leukocytes) circulating in the blood. Leucopenia can put you at increased risk of infections and diseases. It usually happens due to infections, anemia, leukemia, or as a side effect of chemotherapy and some other medicines.

Find information and support for leucopenia by joining our online support group.

Leukemia

Certain genetic conditions can raise the risk for leukemia, one of those conditions being Down's syndrome. For more such details on leukemia, or cancer of the white blood cells, our support group is the place you need to be.

Mitral Valve Regurgitation and Mitral Valve Replacement

Mitral valve regurgitation happens when the mitral valve, which controls blood flow between the left atrium and the left ventricle within the heart, does not close properly. This allows blood to flow back within the heart, and the heart is not able to pump blood to the body as efficiently. The defect is corrected with an open heart surgery to replace the damaged mitral valve with a tissue or mechanical valve.

Join our online group on mitral valve regurgitation and mitral valve replacement to ask your questions to experts, share your experiences, and learn more.

Mitral Valve Stenosis And Mitral Valve Replacement

Mitral valve stenosis happens when the mitral valve – which regulates blood flow between the upper and lower chambers in the left side of the heart – is narrowed. Mitral valve stenosis can lead eventually to heart failure or heart infections or stroke. Mitral valve replacement, an open heart surgery, is performed when the mitral valve is too damaged to be repaired.

Join our online support group for mitral valve stenosis and replacement to meet others who have undergone the procedure and talk to doctors who can help.

Palpitations And Arrhythmias

Heartbeats that can be felt are called palpitations, and most palpitations are caused by an arrhythmia - an interruption in the rhythm of the heart. Palpitations or arrhythmias are usually experienced as the heart skipping a beat followed by an extra-strong heartbeat, or fast and irregular heartbeats.

Join our online group on palpitations and arrhythmias to learn more about the condition and ask your questions to experts in the field.

Patent Ductus Arteriosus

Patent ductus arteriosus is a congenital heart defect in which the ductus arteriosus, a blood vessel near the heart which normally closes after birth, remains open (patent). The main symptom for babies is labored breathing and failure to put on weight. If uncorrected, this can lead to heart failure in older children and adults.

Learn more about patent ductus arteriosus by joining our online group, of experts, concerned lay people and parents, on this condition.
