SYMPTOMATIC CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE
Symptomatic congenital heart disease is a medical condition that involves the heart. Whenever there is an abnormality of the functions of the heart, the person suffering from a heart condition will be greatly affected and other times life-threatening. However, corrective surgery, modern medications and lifestyle changes are sometimes more than enough to treat heart diseases.
There are two types of symptomatic congenital heart disease, the cyanotic and non-cyanotic. Cyanotic heart condition is when there is little or absence of oxygen in the blood while acyanotic or non-cyanotic is when there is a shunted blood flow because of a structural defect such as a hole in the inter ventricular septum.
The symptoms of congenital heart disease include but not limited to, fatigue, lightheartedness, weakness, dizziness, stunted growth for children and cyanotic.
No matter what type of heart condition an individual may be suffering, the quality of life will be truly affected. Though some heart conditions can be treated or modified with balanced diet, exercise, and treatments, while some conditions don’t.
If you think you are suffering from Symptomatic Congenital Heart Disease you should seek medical assistance. You may also be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits. The SSA considered Symptomatic Congenital Heart Disease as a medical condition that would make you eligible for SSDI and SSI. Social Security Administration (SSA) maintains a “Listing of Medical Impairments” (known as the blue book) that automatically qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
