Avatar n tn Physical Signs of Heart Disease Swelling of Your Feet and Lower Legs Retention of fluid in the feet and legs is known as peripheral edema. Edema may appear as "sock marks" at the end of the day. Mild peripheral edema is common.

1291107 tn?1272202031 I take coconut oil pretty frequently and I know it is full of saturated fat. I know that saturated fat can cause heart disease by increasing my cholesterol. I've heard that coconut oil has tons of benefits though and it will not raise by bad cholesterol. I was reading from the Mayo Clinic and it said that coconut oil/saturated fat can cause higher cholesterol. There are so many different opinions. I've been feeling great and I think that taking coconut oil has a lot to do with it.
Avatar m tn In other words, it’s not a paradox at all. It’s only a paradox if one believes saturated fat causes heart disease. The thing is, there’s really no good evidence that it does.
Avatar f tn For instance, occluded vessels can interrupt a good flow of oxygenated blood and the heart cells functionality is compromised and heart wall movement is impaired, and occluded vessels will cause pain almost anywhere on the upper torso. But deep breathing that causes pain is usually not related to the heart. But there could be concomitant issues with a heart issue. Pain has so many causes that is difficult to have any decisive answer without tests.
Avatar f tn There are many causes for heart disease. There is a hereditary component, but many risk factors can be managed to reduce the risk such as proper diet, exercise, not smoking, moderate lifestyle, etc. What may be an issue with you as related to a heart risk could be your response to stressful situations that cause anxiety, etc. You are seeing a doctor and being treated so that may bode well for a reduction of any associated heart risk. Thanks for sharing, and take care.
212161 tn?1599427282 there are stages to heart disease. Artery damage/inflammation/fat deposits/calcification (plaque)/risk of clotting The calcium detector will be the last stage of the disease, you really want to catch the problem before that if possible. So lets say your calcium result is 0, it doesn't mean that your arteries aren't full of uncalcified fatty deposits. In my opinion it's a waste of time.
Avatar m tn Now, a century later, the two most common causes of death are coronary heart disease and cancer, which account for 75 percent of all deaths in this country. There were 500 cardiologists practicing in the U.S. in 1950. There are 30,000 of them now – a 60-fold increase for a population that has only doubled since 1950. In 1911, Procter and Gamble started marketing Crisco as a new kind of food. The name Crisco is derived from CRYStalized Cottonseed Oil.
Avatar m tn AND, since many have become westernised, they have certainly started to see the real effects of heart disease. Erijon is correct in that these individual cases are often used to try and disprove the benefits of medications, but they never use the full story. It's the same with the French paradox for the English. Our neighbours consume tons of dairy products yet have very little instance of heart disease compared to us.
Avatar m tn It is also odd how Japan used to be a main protein diet nation, then after hearing scares of fat related heart disease, they switched to carbs. They are now seeing heart disease increasing. I just don't understand what's taking so long in finding the cause. Perhaps they spent too many years looking at fat.
Avatar n tn Suggest eating about 1800-2200 calories per day broken down to three meals a day, with snacks between meals. Heart Healthy diet which is a moderate fat diet and a moderate fat diet means = using polyunsaturated (omega 3, corn oil, nuts, etc) fats and monounsaturated (olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, etc) fats, no saturated fats (high fat snack foods, butter, fat spreads) and no trans fats.
Avatar f tn 5 ounces of most nuts, including almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. And even though almonds are relatively high in fat and calories, studies show that eating almonds can actually help with weight loss (their protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fats provide the feeling of fullness, preventing overeating).

Avatar m tn Lydia Bazzano, the lead study author, was surprised that a low-carb, high-fat diet could prevent heart disease better than a low fat diet, which has long been prescribed for heart patients.
Avatar n tn This is because your heart is not getting enough blood under stress. Also, if your heart disease is more of a form of cardiomyopathy such as LVH or dilation of the heart, you may feel more rhythm issues. Everyone is different so everyone feels things differently. Unfortunately a heart attack is the first symptom 50% of those with heart disease experience so it is important to have this talk with your doctor.
