Hypertension, diabetes, a history of cigarette smoking and prior MI were substantial risk aspects for HF in people more youthful than 55 years compared with an older population, according to a research study released in The BMJ.
“Danger elements had higher prejudiced worth in forecasting brand-new start of HF in younger than in older people,” Jasper Tromp, MD, research study fellow with the National Heart Centre Singapore, and colleagues wrote.

During a median follow-up of 12.7 years, HF occurred in 1% of those younger than 55 years, 5% of those aged 55 to 64 years, 10% in those aged 65 to 74 years and 18% in those aged 75 years or older.
Among individuals with HF, 36% were classified as having actually protected ejection fraction, 55% as having reduced ejection portion and 9% as unclassified.
In the youngest group, among those who had HF, 32% had preserved ejection portion, compared with 43% in the oldest group, the researchers wrote.
Compared to older participants, in younger individuals, the list below factors were more likely to contribute to HF: hypertension, diabetes, current smoking history and previous MI (P for interaction for all
