A Potential New Tool in the Fight Against Cardiovascular Disease

Posted on February 13, 2016 by Disability Help Group

If you have been diagnosed with a cardiovascular condition that has caused you to become disabled, you may be able to apply for long-term disability benefits. Disability benefits can help cover your financial loss while you are unable to work due to the physical and mental limitations posed by a severe medical condition.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. A report from the Doctor’s Lounge details new research that shows blood pressure drugs may help to reduce the risk of other types of cardiovascular diseases, besides high blood pressure.

Overall, the drugs showed promise in reducing the chance of a person’s death due to a cardiovascular disease.
Even those who don’t suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure) but have other cardiovascular conditions were found to have a reduced chance of suffering a stroke and heart failure.

Doctors point out that even if an individual doesn’t have high blood pressure, the use of blood pressure drugs may prove beneficial if they are at risk for experiencing a cardiovascular event.

This research also found that adults who are 55 years and older have a 90% or greater chance of developing hypertension.
The study also found that 46% of those with heart disease and 54% of those who suffered strokes did not have high blood pressure.

A long-term disability representative can help you to determine if your cardiovascular condition is considered to be debilitating and whether it qualifies you for disability benefits.

Long-term disability benefits may be available to those who have purchased a disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer. Unfortunately, the insurers don’t make it easy for the disabled to get access to the benefits they deserve. When a severe medical condition makes it impossible for you to work and you’ve been denied your long-term disability benefits, a representative from Disability Help Group can help you to cut through the red tape and fight for your benefits, no matter where you live in the U.S!
