Avatar f tn The first is to educate your children about heart disease as soon as you believe they are old enough to understand and begin to take charge of their health. It is never too early to begin heart healthy habits, including diet, exercise, and weight management. The most important part of that education is to teach by example. The second suggestion is to have this conversation with your primary care physician.

Avatar m tn Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a progressive muscle disease of the heart and there is no cure for any muscle disease. There are drugs that you can take to help relax the heart muscle so that it will allow the heart chambers to fill better. A Myoectomy surgery can also be done if there is an obstuction to the outflow tracts (HOCM). There is nothing you can do to slow down or reverse this disease.

721201 tn?1236603680 About 2% of children die from sudden death and that may be the first time parents find out that their child even had heart disease. The disease is extremely rare in children! If an adult is first diagnosed, than it can be at any time; some people are fine and aren't diagnosed until in their 60s. It can be so variable. You need to be monitored for any electrical problems of the heart as those are the problems that can cause a sudden death event.
Avatar m tn s a new study and it needs further study, but the new suggested link to heart disease worries me (dad died at 56 of heart disease). I was diagnosed with HPV when a wart was removed in 2008, the latest I could have gotten it was 2005 (latest "new" partner and monogamous from then).

Avatar m tn We absolutely see high blood pressure because of being overweight, which is causing a large strain on your heart and is a significant risk factor for early coronary artery disease and heart attacks. As far as things you can do at home, the biggest things you can do include appropriate dietary and exercise interventions to try to get your weight down, which should bring down your blood pressure.
Avatar f tn He died last September of heart disease that none of us knew he had. Do you always have heart disease if you have a heart attack? Were we just too dumb to know that?
Avatar n tn If you have a history of heart attacks in your family and anyone under the age of 50 has had one it means that you are simply in a higher risk group. The best thing that you can do for yourself if this is the case is to make sure that you are checked annually by a good heart doc so that they can keep an eye on you.

991611 tn?1249673064 I am O RH Negative blood group and have just recently been diagnosed with undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease. I have two children (19 and 20) and had an anti-D injection after my first child. Is there a connection with this blood group and autoimmune disease? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/706589'>Rh-negative blood connection with diabetes and heart disease</a>.
Avatar f tn If there is true LVH, causes can be from highly trained exercise, from obstruction of the outflow of the left side of the heart, or from a disease called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a genetic abnormality of the heart muscle. If he is otherwise normal, the likelihood of true LVH is low.
Avatar f tn Congenital anomalies affect 1 in 30 children and the leading cause of infant deaths according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Examples of gross congenital anomalies would be a heart defect, kidney malformation, or even an extremity malformation (visible birth defect). My son was born with several congenital anomalies and affects 1 in 30 million children. Only one (Multicystic dysplastic kidney) actually showed up in our ultrasound.
Avatar n tn Frank, My comment doesn't directly answer your question, but I hope it's a bit helpful for you. I'm certain your whole family is concerned now with managing your son's diabetes and trying to learn about the disease & possible prevention. It is quite unusual for a youngster to be diagnosed with Type 2, altho' it is not unheard of, especially in some high risk ethnic groups where the children are obese. Has your 8 year old been seen by an endocrinologist?
Avatar m tn So, treating enough people to prevent one heart attack costs $500,000 per year. Since about 70% of the heart attacks were not fatal, prevention of a single death from heart attack would cost even more, approximately $1,700,000. Giving the benefit of the doubt, we may allow for a similar reduction in stroke and say that "only" $250,000 is needed to protect one person from a stroke or heart attack. It is hardly surprising that Astra Zeneca's share price increased by $1.
Avatar f tn I have hypercholesterolemia, hypothyroidism, congestive heart disease with unstable angina, coronary artery disease, fibromyalgia, erythromelalgia, intracranial atherosclerotic disease, post traumatic stress disorder, chronic severe depression with suicidal tendencies, sleep apnea, diabeties, gerd and ibs. I'm a 50 year old female. My question is, should I have my daughter and grandchildren tested for any of these disorders/diseases just on the basis of me having it?
