Although there are some effective drugs against blood clots, experts emphasize the natural ways of prevention. Smoking cessation, weight loss, healthy eating and physical activity are some of the basic preventive measures.
Recent data from the Research Institute of thrombosis (TRI) in London show that blood clots in 95% of cases are to blame for the occurrence of stroke and heart attack, as well as that half a million Europeans die from blood clots in the blood.
Furthermore, one out of three patients will develop thrombosis if he don’t applies preventive measures. It may be drugs such as thrombolytics, anticoagulants, antiplatelets, but doctors emphasize natural ways to prevent the creation of these fatal clots.
Clot generated by the circulation may become due to different parts of the body and leads to a blockage of the blood vessels, and consequently to heart attack, stroke or pulmonary embolism.
Paralyzed person and patients with major fractures or surgery, after a long rest, have an increased risk of this disease which is more likely, especially if there are genetic predispositions.
Latest research shows that the usual painkillers known as nonsteroidal anti-drugs such as “naproxen” and “ibuprofen” may increase the risk of a blood clot. The study involving 21,000 patients published in the journal “Rheumatology”, showed that those who used ibuprofen have a 80% higher risk of thrombosis.
On the basis of previous research we believe that these methods could prevent the generation of a blood clot, but there are experts that are opposed to some of this type of prevention.
Consumption of Vitamin E
Regular consumption of certain doses of vitamin E may reduce the risk of blood clots in women, US researchers announced.
They, however, note that is necessary a further research to confirm the role of the vitamin in the prevention of creating a blood clot or venous thromboembolism, life-threatening, and recommend to patients do not stop the use of the prescribed anticoagulant.
Results of the examination showed that women who use vitamin E have 21% less likely to get blood clots, say scientists at the American Heart Association.
Smokers have a twofold increased risk of developing a blood clot, scientists say. Severe disease of the arteries of the legs, Birger’s disease, which often inevitably leads to gangrene, binds strictly smoking.
Obesity is one of the risk factors for the occurrence of thrombosis. Women who have excess around the thighs have an increased risk for development, as men with fat around the waist.
Danish researchers conducted 10-year study that involved nearly 60,000 men and women. Research has shown a clear connection between the places of the body where fat has settled down and the risk of creating blood clots or deep vein thrombosis.
It was revealed that excess weight differently affect women and men differently.
While women are associated of fat on the hips with the occurrence of venous thrombosis in men it exists with waist. Scientists say that 30 minutes of physical activity per day is sufficient prevention of blood clot.
A diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids
Limit your intake of animal products, meat, eggs and dairy products high in fat. Omega-6 fatty acids (vegetables, nuts, whole grains, seeds and olive oil), omega 3 fatty acids (blue fish and pumpkin seeds), plant estrogens (soy products) and soluble fiber (in oats and apples) assist in the suppression of the activity of fats in the blood.
Supplements of iron could be used in the prevention of blood clots. -If the level of iron in the blood is lower than 17 micromoles per liter, the risk of thrombosis is twice as large – said the research presenter Dr. Claire Shovlin.
