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.
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 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 You have less than a 5% chance of having heart disease. Your risk of a heart attack is very low. The scoring table associated with mu CT scan: 1-10 A small amount of plaque is present. You have less than a 10% chance of having heart disease. Your risk of a heart attack is low. But you may want to quit smoking, eat better, and exercise more. 11-100 Plaque is present. You have mild heart disease. Your chance of having a heart attack is moderate.
1296191 tn?1280699873 Prognosis in heart failure can be assessed in multiple ways including clinical prediction rules and cardiopulmonary exercise testing. Clinical prediction rules use a composite of clinical factors such as lab tests and blood pressure to estimate prognosis. Among several clinical prediction rules for prognosing acute heart failure, the 'EFFECT rule' slightly outperformed other rules in stratifying patients and identifying those at low risk of death during hospitalization or within 30 days.
776366 tn?1295689591 Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) is the only one were my risk increased and I am high risk. I went from a background risk of 1 in 156 down to 1 in 92. Bub could still be one of the 91 that are normal, and the risk has come from something found in my blood (low PAPP-A), not a physical defect found on Bub (of which there were none… all completely normal!) He reassured us that if I’d had these results as a woman in her 20’s, then I would be considered low risk.
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.
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?
Avatar m tn what is difference between Heart attack and Angina pain
1200240 tn?1289339687 My hubby has heart disease.He went along to the GP yesterday and he is refering him back to the consultant for further investigation as he has been coming over very poorly and his pulse was low. The GP told him the consultant will probably tell him he's to have a heart bypass which is worrying him now. Today he came over bad in himself as he has been doing quite a lot, he seems a shadow of his normal self.He gets so fatigued and feels very ill in himself.
Avatar m tn Researchers say walnuts are loaded with antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease that refers to a number of deadly complications (including heart attack and stroke). The most comprehensive review of clinical trials on nut consumption in relation to cardiovascular disease showed consuming just one ounce of walnuts five or more times a week about a handful every day can slash heart disease risk by nearly 40 percent.
469720 tn?1388146349 Yet another worry for those folks who don't get enough sun exposure throughout the year. 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.
469720 tn?1388146349 Early Warning Symptom for the #1 Killer of Women Is Under-recognized Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)-clogged or narrowed arteries in the legs-is a red flag that the same process may be going on elsewhere because PAD is associated with other life-threatening vascular diseases. Through early detection, interventional radiologists can save women from future stroke, heart attack, and early death.
Avatar f tn The authors of a meta-analysis suggest that this helps to explain the apparent increase in risk sometimes associated with low diastolic pressure, and warn that some medications for high blood pressure may actually increase the pulse pressure and the risk of heart disease. Last, be aware that certain anti-hypertensive drugs and combinations thereof have a better effect on pulse pressure than others. Examples are diuretics and certain calcium channel blockers.
Avatar n tn The coronary artery calcium score (CACS) and the VAP lipid panel are both relatively new comers in the cardiovascular risk prediction realm, so I had to verify my answers before posting them for you. 1. Your CACS of 2000 is indeed very high, at the 94th-99th percentile based on age, gender and race. According to the MESA study (Polonsky et al, JAMA 2010), there is indeed an elevated risk of cardiovascular events.
1679243 tn?1307674938 d seen, even when I was pushing my heart rate upwards to 130 bpms. I was feeling confident that my heart would recover from the inductions during the EP study and for 5 times ( at least according to the short printout I was provided, I have no idea if he tried more times than that or not) at trying to induce arrhythmia, my heart recovered. Until V fib was induced by the Dr and I was shocked back to life.

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 Physical Signs of Heart Disease Swelling of Your Feet and Lower Legs Retention of fluid in the feet and legs is known as peripheral edema. Edema may appear as "sock marks" at the end of the day. Mild peripheral edema is common. Your doctor may check for this sign by pressing a finger against your ankle or shin bone to see if a depression is left behind. This is called "pitting edema.
Avatar m tn I assume you are being treated for high blood pressure, and patients with CAD and very low BP can increase the risk for a stroke and heart attack. There is a study that 110 or lower for systolic pressure and 60 or lower for diastolic pressure may increase the risk. There are other doctors who want the blood pressure as low as possible without side effects such as fainting, dizziness, etc.

469720 tn?1388146349 The diagnosis of cardiovascular disease and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is facilitated by the early identification of the process. The barrier to the early diagnosis of the process is the preconceived idea that the diagnosis of the process must be painful. Nothing could be further from the truth. For people who are at high risk; if you smoke, have Diabetes, High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol or any of these risk factors in a person greater than age 65 should be assessed.
Avatar f tn Since it is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke, this is important to find out. The current recommended treatment is niacin in a dose of 1-3 grams daily. However, please do not take it without asking your doctor. Take care!
Avatar f tn My babies heart rate was 145 the first time they checked then my following 2 appointments it was 149 and I'm having a girl
Avatar m 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.
