Blood Pressure Problems: Blood pressure is basically how forcefully the blood flows through the vessels. Having hypertension or hypotension is also a circulatory system problem.
Cardiomyopathy: Cardiomyopathy happens when the muscle of the heart has difficulty pumping blood throughout the body. This may occur due to several reasons, such as a weak or thickened muscle, or because of a bigger chamber.
Heart Valve Diseases: Valves of the heart ensure that the blood flows in one direction. Having a valve problem can mean the blood may regurgitate or flow backward or that the valve doesn’t allow enough blood to pass through. An example of heart valve disease is mitral valve regurgitation where the mitral valve in the left chamber doesn’t close completely, allowing blood to flow backward.
Vasculitis: Just like how other parts of the body can get inflamed, the blood vessels can suffer from inflammation, too. Vasculitis can happen due to an overactive immune system, and it can make the vessels narrower or weaker, or lead to an aneurysm. Many people with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, an autoimmune condition, may develop vasculitis, too⁹.
Stroke: Stroke, which can happen due to bleeding and blood clots in the brain, is also a circulatory system disease.
