Stroke risk profile

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke risk profile

stroke

Avatar n tn Another cardiologist recommended that he stay on medical management, due to high risk of stroke or other neurological problems during surgery. Also, I have come across a lot of info on the Web as to many instances of brain damage caused during CABG. As a result, I am hesitant to go in for surgery (given that he developed complications even after a relatively simpler procedure, namely the angiography). I came across Dr.
Avatar n tn in his past history he has had MI 2yrs ago and was found to have thrombus in left ventricle at that time and was on tab warfarin 5mg/d since than his lipid profile at that time showed Hypercholetestrolemia and is on statins since 2years (currently lipid profile is in normal range).his family history is insignificant and there is no family history of hypertention ,diabetes mellitus, O/e he has left 5th, 6th, 7thcranial nerve palsies, palsy of 9th and 10 cranial nerves.
147426 tn?1317269232 At the risk of seeming (more) self-centered, I uploaded some pictures of some of my original designs in quilting, needlepoint and knitting. I didn't realize how easiy it was....I'm such a techno-tard! Hope you enjoy. BTW - Michael - what are your kids' ages? Great art! Now I have to go through and look at what everyone has posted! What a great feature!! Wingnut - it's easy. Go to your profile and "edit".

1344197 tn?1392822771 A study looking at 15 randomized trials finds the use of calcium supplements without coadministered vitamin D is associated with an increased risk of heart attack. Most guidelines for the prevention or treatment of osteoporosis recommend the use of calcium supplements, despite the fact that they reduce the risk of fracture only marginally, write Dr Mark J Bolland (University of Auckland, New Zealand) and colleagues.
Avatar m tn Anytime you have increased clot formation risk you have a greater risk of stroke. Many I know who have Lyme disease are on blood thinners - prescription or otherwise. We who have Chronic Lyme Disease know that Lyme often takes refuge in our brains - colonizing them and causing us all kinds of mental dysfunction - as well as possible physical damage of the brain which might also predispose us to stroke.
Avatar m tn //www.riskscore.org.uk/ My guess is that your risk is more along the lines of 6 - 8% based on the fact that the low risk number for your age group is about 4 - 5% so your risk would be higher.
Avatar f tn Hello Sara my apologies I replied to "your post" yet did not actually address you.
469720 tn?1388149949 We recently began to offer comprehensive cardiovascular risk factor assessment in our practice. Following is a description of fractionated lipid panel that we have available. Ill present additional information on genetic variant markers which can be measured in a future blog. Seven regions (subclasses) are determined on LDL-S3GGE®. The subclasses are defined as LDL I, IIa, IIb, IIIa, IIIb, and IVa, IVb.
Avatar m tn The newest high-profile antioxidant study is impressively large (more than 14,000 subjects), impressively long (an eight-year follow up of a ten-year study), from an impressive source (Brigham and Women's Hospital), and published in an impressive periodical (Journal of the American Medical Association). And given all that dazzling impressiveness, here's what's most impressive: It's totally useless. Really – if the Titanic had this many holes in it, it would have sunk in two minutes flat.
1815939 tn?1377995399 Originally published in Journal of Infectious Disease: "Hepatitis C Infection May Fuel Heart Risk" "People infected with the hepatitis C virus are at risk for liver damage, but the results of a new Johns Hopkins study now show the infection may also spell heart trouble.
Avatar m tn If this isolated elevation persists then the management is your option. If you were older with an elevated risk profile (cardiac) then I would treat with foltyx or folban (b12, b6, folic acid supplement). Since you are young it is a more difficult decision. If you have the gene, then you should consider either foltyx or injection (Id recommend monthly injection) because you are at higher risk for thromboembolic phenomneon. Do not buy cheap over the counter supplements.
Avatar m tn Those Eating Most Chocolate Had Half the Risk of Stroke During the eight years, there were 166 MIs (24 fatal) and 136 strokes (12 fatal); people in the top quartile had a 27% reduced risk of MI and nearly half the risk (48%) of stroke, compared with those in the lowest quartile. The relative risk of the combined outcome of MI and stroke for top vs bottom quartile was 0.61 (p=0.014).
Avatar f tn It is hard to give you an estimate of your risk of stroke or heart attack with the limited information available but generally speaking the risk of heart attack or stroke for a 20 year old is low. Your lipid profile shows a completely normal LDL cholesterol but a low HDL cholesterol. I would recommend that you consult with an internist or a cardiologist to review your medical history as well as the lipid profile, so that you can mitigate your long-term risk of cardiovascular problems.
Avatar m tn I am praying for a heart attack or stroke right now.
Avatar f tn Again, it depends on the risk factors. Many people are on it for life. It depends on their risk profile.
Avatar m tn I do, however, continue to recommend 162 milligrams daily (two low-dose aspirin) to patients who already have coronary heart disease, have already had a heart attack or stroke, or who are at high or moderate risk for one and not at risk for gastrointestinal bleeding. In addition, I now follow the recently revised American Diabetes Association guidelines for aspirin use in people with diabetes.
Avatar n tn Hi there! The total cholesterol, LDL and HDL are within the normal limits which do not increase the risk of ischaemic heart disease or strokes; while though the TG level is slightly higher, it is not believed to be a direct factor in IHD. However it is important to understand that the lipid profile is not the only association of the conditions, while other risk factors would also need to be kept under controlled for minimal risk. Hope the information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn What is a lipid profile? The lipid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease. They are tests that have been shown to be good indicators of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels or hardening of the arteries (atherosclerois).
Avatar m tn Given my condition, what would be safe altitude to minimize a heightened risk of TIA's or worse till, stroke? If I do go to these altitudes, what precautions should I take? Advice would be appreciated as soon as possible, as I need to make bookings or plan otherwise. Thank you!
Avatar n tn younger than that it is called arcus juvenalis and is frequently associated with high cholesterol and triglycerides and can be an indication of high risk of heart disease or stroke. You need to see an ophthalmologist Eye MD to confirm the diagnosis and your personal MD should draw a "fasting lipid profile" and discuss your cholesterol and triglycerides levels with you. Neither one has serious implications for sight.
1200510 tn?1265337942 My suggestion to you, based on your risk profile, is to take a Niacin that is a prescription type so your doctor would know how much you're getting each dose. Niacin works very well on lipids and it did wonders changing my LDL/HDL ratio and had a great impact on the Lp(a). I take RX Niaspan at night along with an aspirin and had only one event with flushing after being on it a couple of months. I keep lab appointments to monitor both lipid profile and liver organ tests.
Avatar n tn Hello All laboratories should be viewed as a composite picture to create a risk profile for a patient. Other important factors are family history of heart disease and stroke. As well as you smoking history, exercise and eating habits. I would not look at an isolated value and become alarmed to the point of instituting treatment. I would however recommend that you speak to you heart doctor about cholesterol fractionation.

Avatar n tn looks like I have cardiovascular disease without any risk factors.
1466984 tn?1310564208 Well, I already figured out that the numbness was NOT a stroke, as it would resolve on it's own with no stroke like side effects, and I am not one that likes to go to the doctor. SO I just waited until my annual gyn appt to bring it up and see if he felt it needed to be addressed. He felt it was probably a pinched nerve, so off I went to the orthopedist.
Avatar n tn My most recent reading was 156 (LDL=94, HDL=44). Triglycerides 88. What is my risk level considering the relatively low HDL reading? Thank you.
