535822 tn?1443976780 Researchers in France during the 1990s decided to observe the effect different diets have on heart disease. Two groups of high-risk men participated. All had survived heart attacks. Everyone had high cholesterol and stressful lifestyles. They also smoked and did not exercise. One group was asked to eat the American Heart Association diet which is low in fat and cholesterol. The second group ate a Mediterranean diet, rich in fish, omega-3 fatty acids, vegetables, and olive oil.
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.
469720 tn?1388146349 Diabetes Hypertension High Cholesterol Smoking Additionally a family history of premature cardiovascular disease in the absence of these risk factors increases ones risk significantly. The process is sometimes referred to as the silent killer because it lies quiet as it evolves until one experiences stroke, heart attack or "poor circulation" The PAD Coalition has a mission of improving the public's awareness of this process see www.beatpad.org.
1478333 tn?1287401534 However, because you already have one risk factor for heart disease (diabetes), there is even more reason to reduce other risk factors. How high is my risk for heart attack with Type 2 Diabetes? Higher than you might think! One study found that people with type 2 diabetes, who have not had a heart attack, have as high a risk for a future heart attack as a person without diabetes who has already had a heart attack.

3246889 tn?1349974415 We all know that getting and keeping cholesterol down is an important component of reducing the risk of heart disease. For years the focus in the medical community has been on measuring “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) as a surrogate marker for heart disease risk. (The thinking is, the higher one’s LDL, the greater one’s risk for heart disease.) While LDL is still very important, scientists are now of a mind that LDL alone may not be the most optimal way to track the risk for heart disease.
Avatar n tn Hello, Microvessel disease refers to the smaller arteries in the heart not visualized on coronary angiography. It is proven by using medications and pressure or flow catheters during cardiac catheterization to show an abnormal response to medications that typically dilate arteries. It is associated with obesity, diabetes, and often occurs in patients with metabolic syndrome (hypertension, increased triglycerides, obesity, diabetes).
2052165 tn?1331146225 If some women give birth to a baby with some congenital heart disease like, Tetrology of fallot, then what about her 2nd baby, he/she will born normal or with the same defect in heart??? Please also guide what are the causes of this type of diseases and how it can be prevented?
Avatar m tn Typically, blockages are not treated until they exceed 70% or if the individual is experiencing symptoms of heart disease like chest pain. The fact that your Uncle has diabetes puts him at a much higher risk for heart disease so it is very important that he keep his diabetes in check. His blood pressure should also be easily controlled with meds, is he on any?
Avatar m tn If your parents or siblings in particular had heart disease, that increases your risk significantly (especially if they had heart disease before the age of 55). While your normal pressure and labs do confer a lower risk for you, it doesn't eliminate it completely. If you are having intermittent chest pains, consider seeing your primary physician or a cardiologist for an EKG, and depending on your story, can pursue more testing if necessary.
Avatar f tn t any family history of heart disease. My age does not indicate towards heart problems. I am so worried abt my health and future. Somebody plz help me. If i am at risk of heart attack or CAD. What should i do. Plz reply.
Avatar m tn Should I be on medication at this time? My father dies of heart disease at age 53. my mom has heart disease and diabetes age 72. My 12 hour blood fast for diabetes was 201.
Avatar f tn Docto says i have an elevate risk of heart disease...something about CPL at 110 and my cholesterol is off the charts.
Avatar n tn ago I was diagnosed with Ischmic cardiomyopathy, also have retinopathy, and I know diabetes is a risk factor for heart disease. Why does nobody reconize diabetes as a risk factor, When trying to get comp?
Avatar m tn Scientists in Denmark found that overusing antibiotics can raise your risk of type 2 diabetes. A study in Spain says people who eat at least 1 Kiwi per week had 8% higher HDL (good) cholesterol and 16% lower levels of triglycerides (bad fat). A 28 year study found that among people who drank 3-5 cups of coffee per day there were fewer deaths from heart disease (19%) and diabetes (24%). A study found that men with E.D.
Avatar f tn I have a question > My father had heart attacks and genetic heart disease which he was postive for factor 5 so I had the test done. I am postive for factor 5 506Q single was identified and the Mthfr SINGLE MUTATION(a1298c WAS IDENTIFIED do this mean that my chances for increased thrombosis or heart attacks are high for me? Just wodnering and I dont' smoke and Im 45 years old and I stress easy.

Avatar n tn Hi Tony, It is now recommended practice that diabetics be on ACE/ARB meds for their ability to prevent kidney disease. Many of the Type 1s and Type 2s that I know use this type of med for prevention. I've been on one or the other for a long time (hmmm, maybe 6-7 years). At the time I started, my bp was about normal, but borderline. We diabetics are also at significantly greater risk for high bp and heart disease and so I didn't mind starting the meds.
Avatar f tn No, it is generally not called that and the treatment in the vast majority of patients is observation and treatment of underlying risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes or coronary artery disease. In the few patients with severe mitral valve disease, valve repair is preferred to replacement, and can be performed earlier in the course of disease.
Avatar n tn Researchers took 23,000 people and studied their risk factors for heart disease. They found that changes in diet reduced heart attack risk by 81 percent. How could such simple changes deliver such amazing results? By lowering blood pressure and reducing inflammation. This comes as no surprise to NHD panel member Dr. Dwight Lundell. He was a heart surgeon for 25 years and performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries. During his career he’s pioneered several innovative advances in coronary medicine.
Avatar n tn Whether elevated triglycerides are a risk factor for cardiac disease is widely debated. Diabetes is a strong risk factor for heart disease, and diabetics often have elevated triglycerides. Elevated triglycerides with an associated low HDL [you do not have this problem] can increase the risk of heart disease. No one knows for sure whether isolated elevation of triglycerides of the modest degree you have is an independent risk factor for heart disease.

Avatar n tn I have a concern about the level of risk I have for heart disease. I was diagnosed with coronary endothelial dysfunction 1 year ago after many episodes of chest pain radiating to back and left arm. My EKG, etc were ok but we did a cardiac cath due to the symptoms and a family history of heart disease. No blockages, EJ of 40% in the cath lab. This was later told to me that now was being calculated at 50%. I have total cholesteral of over 475 without treatment, with Crestor down to 280.
1786445 tn?1314968654 Have you been checked for diabetes? When I developed Neuropathy caused from my diabetes, my feet and legs had areas that felt warm. As the neuropathy increased, the hot feeling changed to a 'pins and needles' sensation. You know you need to quit smoking, it messes up every organ in the body, but you know that. I quit, it's possible. Smoking is like throwing dry flies when the trout are devouring Copper Johns, it just doesn't work.
