Vioxx and Congestive Heart Failure - What to Know for Your Health
Vioxx has been known to cause Congestive Heart Failure. Congestive Heart Failure is a condition in which the heart is unable to efficiently supply blood to the body that may result in organ failure and damage due to blood being backed up behind the heart (congestion). CHF is considered to be a symptom to an underlying disease that may be from systolic dysfunction or high output failure.
Over time, kidneys may be unable to adequately excrete salt and water, the lungs may accumulate fluid and eventually lead to pulmonary edema, and the liver may also be congested with fluid leaving a person with the inability to properly excrete toxins. Causes of CHF are:
• coronary artery disease
• high blood pressure
• heart valve disorders
• alcohol abuse
• heart muscle infections
• heart rhythm disorders
• thyroid disorders
