Avatar m tn To reduce the risk of Lyme disease: • Wear light-colored clothing and preferably long pants and long sleeves when in places where ticks may be present. This helps in spotting ticks that may be on clothes. Tucking pants into socks is also a very good idea. • Perform a tick check every day so ticks can be removed before they have a chance to feed and transmit pathogens they might be carrying.
Avatar n tn The best noninvasive test would be a stress echocardiogram with full resting echocardiogram. This only takes about an hour and involves you walking on a treadmill or using medications to chemically stress your heart if you can't. They are not cheap, but most insurances will cover if any symptoms of heart disease such as chest pain or shortness of breath.

Avatar n tn 1. If you smoke, quit smoking. This is the single biggest thing a person can modify in their life. Smoking will significantly increase one's risk of having a heart attack. 2. Maintain an active lifestyle - Try to get some regular exercise. 3. Follow a strict low fat diet. Some may even consider following a vegetarian diet. 4. Maintain regular follow-up with your doctor. All of these will help and some medication may be necessary if your doctor feels it is needed. Good Luck to you.

It is usually only high-grade stenoses (severe narrowing) of the larger coronary arteries that can be detected.
