The research encompassed studies from around the world and sheds new light on the negative health impact of loneliness and those living with cardiovascular disease.

Cardiovascular disease (or CVD) is an umbrella term for multiple conditions that affect the cardiovascular system. That includes diseases of the heart and blood vessels, such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, arrhythmia, stroke, and congenital cardiovascular defects.


CVDs are typically caused by a combination of factors, such as genetic disorders, lifestyle choices, or various environmental conditions. Symptoms can range from shortness of breath to chest pain to fatigue. Diagnosis is made through necessary screenings like echocardiograms or electrocardiograms. Prevention and treatment vary depending on the condition; however, a healthy diet and active lifestyle may result in a lower risk of developing cardiovascular ailments.

The new study published in the journal of Psychosomatic Medicine included previous research that followed people for decades across multiple regions, including Europe, North America, and Asia.
It was found that people with cardiovascular disease with higher levels of loneliness, social isolation, and living alone tend to die prematurely. These effects were noted as being stronger n European countries, perhaps reflecting the large number of those living alone in parts of Europe.

It’s important for people with a history of cardiovascular problems or who are at risk for developing cardiovascular issues to seek out meaningful relationships and engage in activities that bring them together with others in order to protect their overall health and well-being.
