Welcome to Health Care Magic,
ATHEROSCLEROSIS is the condition that results from deposition of fatty material in the arteries thereby decresing its diameter or sometimes complete blockge.This can cause angina,shortness of breath,heart attack and other symptoms.
It may be caused due to-diabetes,hevy alcohol use,high blood pressure,high fat diet,obesity,increasin age,smoking and family history of heart disease.
