Consider the causes of left-sided heart failure:
Choose one phrase from those available to correctly accompany, each of the factors a-e.
Drag and drop the phrase into the appropriate box. Each phrase may only be used once.
a. Breathlessness (reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood)
b. An overactive thyroid gland (increases the metabolic demand by the tissues.)
c. Stenosis of the mitral valve (causes damage to heart muscle.)
d. Diabetes (is associated with weight gain )
e. Calcification of the tricuspid valve (reduces the left cardiac output. )

shunts unoxygenated blood directly from the right to the left side of the circulation.
causes regurgitation between atrium and ventricle.
reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood.
is a symptom, not a cause.
is not associated with left sided heart failure.
is associated with weight gain
increases the metabolic demand by the tissues.
causes damage to heart muscle.
reduces the left cardiac output.

Hi Zak im not sure if this is for some sort of class project or if its symptoms you are actually suffering. Hopefully not the latter. The signs of heart disease are not obvious all the time and sometimes a heart attack is the first indicator.
There is also no single cause of heart disease but there are several risk factors that can help increase your chance of developing the condition. Risk factors such as poor lifestyle habits such as smoking,overeating,high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease are also high risk factors. Please visit a cardiologist in your home country for a proper diagnosis.
