Reasons behind Bandaru Dattatreya 21 years son death
Recently, A 21-year-Old medical Student, Son of Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya suffered from Massive Heart attack and collapsed in his residence, the heart attack was fatal and deceased in the hospital before any treatment could be provided.
The Son’s father Bandaru Dattatreya, was also suffering from the Heart condition but was having treatment for it, the former being 71-years-old knows at his age Heart conditions are common but, how did his son a 21-year-old healthy young man had a Heart attack is quite puzzling.
Do Genes affects the risk of Heart attack?
If we look into the young man’s lifestyle nothing is peculiar, he was following the same lifestyle like thousands of students across the country and was not under any depression or stress. He used to eat food from eateries and mess just like his friends and had just put on some weight. These habits do not cause a heart attack.
The answer to all is in genes, the hereditary genetic component which has passed from father to son. Genetically inherited heart conditions are passed on through families. They are also known as genetic heart conditions or inherited cardiac conditions (ICC). They can affect people of any age and can be life-threatening if left undetected and untreated an inherited heart condition may lead to heart failure or even sudden death from cardiac arrest. For many families, the first sign there’s a problem is when someone dies suddenly with no obvious cause or explanation.
These conditions are different from most congenital heart conditions, although some inherited conditions can cause congenital defects to form, often as part of a syndrome. Genetically inherited heart conditions are caused by a fault (or mutation) in one or more of our genes. If one of your parents has a faulty gene, there’s a 50:50 chance you could inherit it. If you do, then there’s also a 50:50 chance you could pass it on to each of your children. It’s possible to have a faulty gene that can lead to a heart condition, yet never develop any signs or symptoms of the condition itself. If this happens, you can still pass the faulty gene on and there’s no way of knowing how it may affect your child, even if they do inherit the same faulty gene.
What inherited heart conditions are there?
The most common inherited heart conditions are cardiomyopathies, inherited arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms) and very high cholesterol levels.
- Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
- Dilated cardiomyopathy
- Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
Inherited arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms):
- Long QT syndrome (LQTS)
- Brugada syndrome
- Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT)
- Progressive cardiac conduction defect (PCCD)
Very high cholesterol levels:
- Familial Hypercholesterolaemia
What are the symptoms of an inherited heart condition?
Some people with an inherited heart condition have no symptoms, while other people develop symptoms such as:
- dizzy spells
- palpitations, and
Sadly, for many families, the first sign there’s something wrong is when someone dies suddenly with no obvious cause.
How is an inherited heart condition diagnosed?
It can be very challenging to diagnose an inherited heart condition, but your doctor or specialist may suspect you have one if:
- Genetic mutations and gene variations related to heart conditions are found
- you’ve been diagnosed with angina or had a heart attack at a young age
- a member of your family has been diagnosed with an inherited heart condition
- there’s a history of sudden cardiac arrests or premature deaths in your family
What happens if a family member is diagnosed with an inherited heart condition?
If someone in your family has been diagnosed with an inherited heart condition, your doctor may suggest that you should go for a genetic screening test to check the condition of your heart. You may also have a genetic test specifically to see if you’ve inherited the same faulty gene. This is called cascade testing.
Why get treated for an inherited heart condition?
The benefits of being tested, and having treatment if you’re diagnosed with an inherited heart condition, are:
- your risk of getting coronary heart disease and having a heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest is greatly reduced
- monitoring and treatment can be started quickly
- close members of your family can be tested and treatment can be started if needed.
Genetic screening or test for Heart conditions can help identify the root problem and can help you prevent any symptoms of the disease.
