Avatar m tn Multivitamin-Mineral Use Is Associated with Reduced Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Mortality among Women in the United States. http://jn.nutrition.org/content/early/2015/01/07/jn.114.204743.
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.

Low vitamin D levels may increase the risk for Cardiovascular disease ie heart attack and stroke If you have low vitamin D levels, correcting the deficiency may reduce the risk for heart disease, new research suggests. The studies build on the researchers' previous work linking low levels of vitamin D to an increased risk for heart disease.
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.
1503155 tn?1347312859 In one review of 13 studies, people who drank red wine had a 32% lower risk of atherosclerotic disease (hardening of the arteries) compared with people who did not drink at all. Researchers have suggested that the beverage may be the reason for the “French paradox,” the relatively low incidence of heart disease in France despite a comparatively high intake of saturated fat. Resveratrol to the rescue.
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 m tn Clinical trails of Pravastatin, commonly used to lower cholesterol and decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, do show an increase in parasympathetic modulation of heart rate. In simple words, Yes it does effect the heart rate to beat faster.
Avatar m tn The study included 40 healthy men, between the ages of 55 and 70, who had no heart disease risk factors. Ten of the men had never exercised for more than two hours a week. The remaining 30 had exercised for at least seven hours a week for more than five years, either beginning before age 30 or after age 40. Their regular exercise involved either cycling or running.
Avatar n tn However, some studies suggest that there is an increased risk of premature heart disease in South Asians, an increased risk in African-Americans, and potentially a lower risk in Hispanic Americans. I am not aware of specific data regarding Jewish males.
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).
Avatar n tn I asked the same question concerning how NSAIDs were related to an increased risk of heart attack and found that unfortunately no one specifically knows the answer to this question. There are multiple hypothesis from the increase in blood pressure, increased thrombosis and a direct effect on plaque stability. There is also variability in each drug. I was concerned as I have controlled high blood pressure and was prescribed Celebrex by my Rhuematolgist for my arthritis.
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.
101028 tn?1419603004 Many of us have done it - had sex when we shouldn't have. Maybe you had too much to drink and someone just seemed like a good idea at the time. Maybe you thought you really "knew" someone so that when you hooked up for a one night stand - you didn' t think we needed to bother with a condom. Perhaps you are in a relationship and just needed to sow an oat or two with someone else. Maybe even a business trip or vacation and a sex worker just seemed like the right idea.
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.
469720 tn?1388146349 Here are some exerpts from the study Women who ate large amounts of red meat had a 20 percent higher risk of dying of cancer and a 50 percent higher risk of dying of heart disease than women who ate less. For processed meats, the increased risks for large quantities were slightly lower overall than for red meat. The researchers compared deaths in the people with the highest intakes to deaths in people with the lowest to calculate the increased risk.
Avatar m tn Low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and raised triglycerides, affecting millions of patients worldwide, are strongly linked to significantly increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) even in patients who achieve or surpass current low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) targets.
Avatar n tn 30 mg/d of Lp(a), have been associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease in numerous studies. This value provides additional information on the risk for coronary artery disease. Your symptoms of easy bruising may indicate a bleeding disorder. The causes for bleeding disorders are hemophilia, von willebrand's disease, immune disorders, leukemia, aplastic anemia and scurvy.
Avatar m tn Increased Waistline and High Triglycerides Increase Risk of Heart Disease Information published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal found that increased waist size and triglyceride levels were associated with the highest risk for coronary artery disease. While both factors were found to increase heart disease risk, the combination of the two significantly raised the likelihood of developing coronary artery disease.
Avatar f tn Research has shown that people with kidney abnormalities have a dramatically increased risk of heart disease. But by studying blood samples from patients with early-stage kidney disease, researchers at The Rockefeller University Hospital hope to better define the connection. A new pilot study, launched last month, involves adults diagnosed with kidney disease and focuses on a condition called endotoxemia, a buildup of toxins in the blood that may affect cardiovascular health.
1344197 tn?1392819171 Hysterectomy for benign, non cancerous, indications is one of the commonest surgical procedures in women, but the association between the procedure and the increase risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), heart attack and stroke is not fully understood. Hysterectomy has traditionally been considered the method of choice for treating a variety of benign, non-cancerous, gynecological disorders due to the low surgical complication rate and definite cure of these diseases.
Avatar n tn My question is can there be a corelation between CLL and artery disease? If so, what is the best course of action for her to take? According to heart surgeons in our area she is not a candidate for by pass because her arteries are too small plus there is a significant risk of infection with heart surgery as a result of the CLL.
152159 tn?1200082454 Dr...I do not have a real "family history of heart disease", meaning no brothers, sisters, or parents, grandparents have had it. But one of my maternal grandmother's brothers died at 57 from a "heart attack"...this was back in the early 70s so I can only assume he died of CAD...not some other heart issue. I have always resembled this part of my family and I think I bear some resemblence to him from pictures I've seen.
Avatar m tn Coronary heart disease accounts for approximately 35% of all cardiovascular deaths and 10.5% of all deaths worldwide (2). Most risk factors of coronary heart disease are changeable, meaning coronary heart disease is a largely preventable disease (3). Omega-3 oils have been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, but how much is enough?
675329 tn?1297288378 Hi, Removal of ovaries in the postmenopausal period will not cause many symptoms and you should be able to cope up. The increased risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer is a risk of menopause which may be natural one or because of removal of the ovaries. And it is not because of removal of ovaries per se. Hope this helps.
