Avatar n tn Tucker, Your doctor is right that some studies have shown that vitamin E and folic acid may help in prevention of acute events in patients with coronary artery disease. But this issue is not well settled. There are many studies questioning the issue too. So, currently there are no recommended doses for Vitamin E and Folic acid in the prevention of coronary artery disease as their role is controversial. 400 IU a day of vitamin E and 1-2 mg/d of folic acid have been used in some clinical trials.

Avatar n tn s health initiative tested women older than yourself for the hypothesis that HRT protected against cancer/fractures or heart disease. This trial found no benefit from the HRT on heart disease, but a decrease in fractures risk, and increase in thromboembolism risk and no change in breast cancer risk over the 7 year period. The bottom line is that HRT is probably not going to decrease your heart disease risk, but if you have been taking it for over one year isn't likely to increase it either.

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.
