Till now we all might have been clear with the fact that not all stress could be harmful to us. While acute kind of pressure has always forced people to perform better and motivated in every sense, chronic stress could do more harm to our health than ever thought.
Not only headaches and irritability but stress has the power to cause harm to other parts of the body. Yes, your health may be at risk because of the pressure of been exposed to threat or stress.
Here are the serious implications of stress on our health:
In general, stress is found to be linked with many kinds of diseases and health issues that few of you even might have experienced. Here we tell you!
- Heart Health issues
Many of you might have used alcohol or smoke in response to a stressful day or event. But that consumption of alcohol or smoking does nothing but affects heart health and in turn, causes the imbalanced blood pressure levels. With this, the walls of the arteries also get affected and further the risk of heart attack also increases.
- Alzheimer’s disease
While the actual causes of Alzheimer’s disease are not clear, stress could be one of the factors leading to it. It is been found that the people who have higher level of stress and who are at higher risk of blood pressure are more likely to get diagnosed with this disease than the ones who hardly get stressed out.
- Fertility issues
Yes, one of the bad effects of stress also includes fertility problems in women and men both. Stress is found to trigger the hormone-like glucocorticoids that reduce sperm production in men. Well, women are not free from the effects of stress as the ones who take a lot of stress are less likely to get pregnant easily.
Some people binge on food while in tension. Have you ever done the same? Well, at times when I think a lot about something, I try to eat a lot like a glutton. But only sometimes. However, few people (it could be you too) try binging on food when they find something stressful and this leads to overeating. Yes, this overeating is the reason that causes obesity further.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the roots of stress are also found connected to sugar levels of the body. Well, the production of stress in the body could induce the hormone cortisol in excess and further could increase glucose levels of the body resulting in higher risk of diabetes.
- Low sex drive
