A 37-year-old male asked:
Is there a difference between Coronary Heart Disease and Coronary Artery Disease and what are the symptoms of each and how can they be tested for?

Specializes in Vascular Surgery
Same: Heart disease & coronary disease are the same. Fried foods, saturated fats, trams fats, sedentary lifestyle, tobacco use (not marijuana per se), diabetes, hypertension and, distantly, family Hx all collude to create atherosclerosis.
