Javid Muhammad , Kayani Amjad Rashid , Akram Maleeha , Kazmi Ali Raza , Jahan Sarwat , Afshan Kiran , Rauf Sania , Naseem Afzaal Ahmed , Tahir Fahim , Qayyum Mazhar , Rafi Muhammad , Rizvi Syed Shakeel Raza

Stress is any uncomfortable emotional experience accompanied by predictable psychological, physiological and behavioral changes. A sudden and severe stress generally produces an increase in the heart rate and blood pressure and induces a state of alertness in an individual. Evidence indicates that chronic stress depresses thyroid function, resulting in low levels of T3 and T4, which affects cardiomyocytes’ function and leads to development of cardiov...
