Heart disease is often mistaken for a singular condition. It actually classifies numerous health conditions that affect heart function and is thus generalized. Heat diseases include many conditions from heart blockages to coronary artery disease. A commonly occurring condition is dysfunctional heart valves, resulting in a host of complications. Being a muscle, the heart receives oxygen and nutrients from your blood system. If complications arise within your blood it is likely that your heart will suffer.
