Trim and fit: You may still have heart disease......
Posted by Charles Waisbren on October 05, 2018 at 12:32 PM
You may be trim and fit.....and yet you may still have heart disease. There are five major risk factors for heart blockages: FAMILY HISTORY, high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes and smoking. Hence, even if you are a non smoker with a terrific blood pressure, good blood sugar and a normal cholesterol level, if you have a family history of heart disease you are at risk. For people with risk factors, I continue to recommend an ultra-fast CT of the heart vessels to get a better idea of the cardiac status.
