Heart Disease Deaths Surged In The U.S. Amid 2011 To 2017

According to a new study amid 2011–2017, the age-adjusted death rate lowered for heart disease, but the number of heart disease casualties surged. The study was issued online in JAMA Cardiology. Stephen Sidney—from KPNC (Kaiser Permanente Northern California), Oakland—along with colleagues studied regional alterations in the U.S. population aged 65 Years and older than that and in the age-adjusted death rates and number of casualties listed with a basic cause of heart disease, heart failure, CHD (coronary heart disease), or other heart diseases from 2011 to 2017. The scientists discovered that while the study period, the population of adults aged 65 Years and older in the U.S. surged by 22.9%, whereas, the population of adults—younger than 65 Years—climbed by 1.7%.

The age-adjusted death rate lowered by 14.9% and 5% for CHD and heart disease, respectively, and surged by 8.4% and 20.7% for heart diseases and heart failure, respectively. There was surge in the number of casualties by 38%, 23.4%, and 8.5%, for heart failure, heart diseases, and heart disease, correspondingly, whereas for CHD, deaths declined by 2.5%. Almost 80% of heart disease deaths happened in adults aged more than 65 Years.

On a related note, the U.S. CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported that cancer death rates dropped, while heart disease deaths rose. The cancer death rates decreased for adults aged 45–64 Years between 1999 and 2017, while heart disease mortality rates dropped to 2011 and then surged, as per to the NVSR (National Vital Statistics Reports). Sally C. Curtin—from the NCHS (National Center for Health Statistics), Maryland—along with colleagues presented heart disease and cancer death rates among adults aged 45–64 Years from 1999 to 2017. Curtin stated a 19% decline in cancer mortality rates for adults aged 45–64 Years from 1999 to 2017.
