Heart disease odds

Common Questions and Answers about Heart disease odds


1806721 tn?1554333407 There's a path doc on HealthTap answering my question by citing to small odds than addressing on the merits. I got agitated and left a not-so-nice note back to him - "Odd to a cancer patient is just a number. What is the odd of a healthy 35 y/o with no family history getting rectal cancer? My doctor would have missed my diagnosis if she believes in odds." So what are the numbers we are talking about here?

1200240 tn?1289339687 My hubby has heart disease.He went along to the GP yesterday and he is refering him back to the consultant for further investigation as he has been coming over very poorly and his pulse was low. The GP told him the consultant will probably tell him he's to have a heart bypass which is worrying him now. Today he came over bad in himself as he has been doing quite a lot, he seems a shadow of his normal self.He gets so fatigued and feels very ill in himself.

Avatar f tn had open heart surgery and lung disease have to be on h2o
Avatar f tn But to rest your mind, if you do not have any underlying heart disease then chances of a heart attack at your age are very slim. Heart attacks are usually caused by clogged arteries and yours have not had a lot of time to really clog up. That said, there are other reasons for having a heart attack but odds are at your age your heart can tolerate what you throw at it. But considering you have been in pain for a number of days it may be prudent to go and see a doctor to get checked out.
Avatar m tn An estimated 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, and an estimated 600,000 more may suffer from an often misdiagnosed subtype called "hippocampal sparing" Alzheimer’s Since there’s no conventional cure, the issue of prevention is absolutely critical if you want to avoid becoming an Alzheimer’s statistic.
Avatar f tn That would depend on a few factors I would think. What kind of congenital defect are you speaking of? Pulmonary hypertension is a serious condition in itself, and the condition usually gets worse unless it can be successfully treated. Again, this is difficult to answer because we don't know the cause of your PH. It could be due to heart disease or it could be due to problems with the vessels in the lungs among other things. Is the right side of your heart dilated at all?

Avatar n tn An echocardiogram would help rule out structural heart disease, but I would want to talk with you first to see if the odds of structural heart disease justified the test. If you have a normal EKG, normal stress and echocardiogram, that would rule out cardiac causes for your symptoms.
Avatar f tn i am 15 with Rheumatic heart disease. i have two leaking valves and i was told if i get an infection it will go to my blood stream and go to my heart which can kill me. im intrested in piercings and im getting my nose pierced and i got permision from my heart specialist but i never got the ok for my lip to get pierced. i just want one piercing on my lip and my nose. now i know that i could POSSIBLY get an infection but i dont think its that likely to happen to me.
Avatar m tn The risk of having a baby born with a CHD is 1 in every 100 births. As you can see, it is actually quite common. If you are concerned about the odds of this happening again, talk to your doctor about it and maybe he can put you in touch with a doctor who specializes in genetics. there are some forms of heart disease which are genetic in nature such as some of the elecrtrical problems with the heart as well as some of the cardiomyopathies.
Avatar n tn My father was recently diagnosed with Aortic Valve Disease. He was told the calcification of the valve is severe and has been reduced to a slit. We knew 3 years ago that it was starting to calcify and he was told then one day it would be a problem. My father is 72 years old and has had coronary bypass surgery twice, once in late 1979 and again in early 1981. He never had a heart attack. We are concerned as to whether he'd be able to survive surgery to replace the valve.

Avatar n tn my heart start beating fast for around 7-10 minutes on nervousness and end only if after 10 mins i lay down Is this a disease and suggest remedy and reason why it happens
453731 tn?1225199508 Hello... I was only 19 when I had my first open heart surgery, I am now 29 and needing the 4th one... The first two OHS were both mitral valve repair, the 3rd one was a mitral valve replacement (porcine valve) all due to mitral valve prolapse and regurgitation. I just recently had a baby (now 4 1/2 mos old via an emergency C-section) and am now in bad need of my 4th OHS due to severe mitral valve stenosis accompanied by a moderate pulmonary hypertension.
Avatar n tn Heart disease comes from inactivity (office jobs, not exercising), eating unhealthy foods, stress, smoking, being overweight, etc. I think you're being paranoid here. I read your Doc Forum post and response and you are obsessed with thinking you have persistent HPV. Nothing what you wrote here or there scares me at all. I sit at a desk 8 hours a day and I know this causes heart disease, yet I still do this to pay my bills.
Avatar m tn How common is it for a 23 year old male to have heart disease or a heart attack. I have no real family history of heart attacks-heart disease. (or any other real illness for that matter. We are a pretty lucky bunch I guess!) but I was just kind of curious on how long it takes for plaque and stuff to build in arteries and what not. any advice?
Avatar n tn This question may seem a little redundant, but I think that if I have a chance to discuss this issue a little with you and others I will get this out of my mind. I have had protected vaginal sex with approximately seventeen females in my life. Of those seventeen females I have had unprotected vaginal sex with about six of them at least once. None of these women have been very promiscuous (as far as I know) and at any rate I have tested negative for everything including HSV-2.
Avatar f tn The cardiologist didnt say anything about it being a heart disease. He just ran an ekg and stated that my son's heart was functioning normal and this enlargement is normal for a child who has had several surgeries. Are you seriously telling me that my son has a heart disease? What steps do i need to take now. what tests need to be ran.
