Avatar n tn Arthur Agatston, the author of "The South Beach Diet" is also a renown cardiologist. He also has written a book which I recommend titled "The South Beach Heart Program." In it he writes about "aggressive prevention" of heart disease. He advocates aggresive management of cholesterol, blood pressure, and triglycerides. That means statin drugs.

Alcohol might be beneficial because of an anti-inflammatory effect. But a person has to start somewhere. Unfortunately, I don't have offhand the recommended levels of lipid numbers and ratios. Maybe somebody else will jump in. I'll tell you what though: my guess is that you are safest when losing the weight, even more so than when the weight is lost.
Avatar m tn Over the last five years, I have been experiencing feeling of light-headedness, tinnitis, and brain fog.

184674 tn?1360860493 The advice one would give to 60-year-old man who has no problem with alcohol but is at high risk of heart disease due to family history is quite different than the advice we give to a 25-year-old woman whose mother died of breast cancer." The study's authors acknowledged alcohol can have health benefits but said alcohol causes 10 times as many deaths as it prevents. There's no known safe level of drinking, they said.
Avatar n tn Most people who have PVC have no symptoms at all and some people are more atuned to their heart, causing them to experience palpitations. If the cause is detemined through heart disease for example then medication will be administered to reduce the risk of sudden death, such as beta blockers, ace inhibitors and statins. For more severe cases, a special pacemaker would be fitted.
