Vascular Links to Disease

You may look—and even feel—healthy on the outside, but inside your microvascular system, a completely different situation could be developing.

Organ starvation is one reason that diseases begin in the body. When the capillaries begin to lose their function, vital organs don’t receive the nutrients needed to be healthy … the silent spiral of health decline begins.

Diabetes

Caused by High Blood Glucose Level
A healthy microvascular system is important for transport of glucose from blood to organs.
High blood glucose damages (micro) vascular system and causes blindness, kidney failure, heart attack and stroke.

Heart Disease

Loss of Pump Function of Heart
Loss of microvascular density causes heart attack.
Insufficient number of capillaries per heart muscle fiber impairs heart pump function (heart failure).

Stroke

Blood Clot in Brain Artery Causing Brain Damage
Damage to vascular wall causes blood clots.
Microvascular damage causes White Matter Lesions with poor neurological prognosis.

Septic Shock

Loss of Circulation Blood Volume Causes Drop in Blood Pressure
Can lead to Impaired organ blood flow resulting in acute kidney failure, reduced lung function, heart attack, stroke and brain damage
Leaky microvessels result in loss of blood plasma volume to tissue space.
Damaged vascular wall causes increased blood clotting and inflammation.

Hypertension

Blood Pressure is Higher than Accepted Level
Hypertension is associated with loss of microvascular density.
Hypertension increases cardiovascular risk (heart attack, stroke, kidney failure).

Kidney Disease

Impaired Production of Urine Causing Increased Blood Volume and Hypertension
Damage of microvessels causes leakage of blood proteins into urinary space, damage of renal filtration units and kidney failure.

Dementia

Early Cognition Impairment: Neurological Complication
Healthy microvascular system is essential to maintain intact neuro-vascular unit and support normal neurological function.

Inflammatory Disorders

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Vasculitis, Allergies, Glomerulonephritis, Autoimmune Diseases, Scleroderma, and Atherosclerosis
Attack of microvascular system by inflammatory cells results in loss of capillaries.
Increased capillary permeability causes tissue edema.

Cancer Metastasis

Uncontrolled Growth of Tumors
Leaky microvessels allow tumor cells to enter the vascular system and redistribute to different parts of our body, causing tumor metastasis (secondary tumors).
