Does High Levels Of Salt Contribute To Coronary Artery Disease
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more

I just found out my husband passed due to acute cocaine intoxication and the contributing factor was severe coronary artery disease. Is there any way to find out if he was a habitual cocaine user? I am not aware that he was. I just received the call from
Hair testing: if he has already been buried (or worse, cremated) it would be difficult to have him disinterred for that kind of testing, but if his comb or hairbrush is still around, that may have enough hair (especially longer strands) to have testing done. It is not inexpensive, and usually has to be ordered by doctor or police authorities. Hair testing can accurately determine times of prior use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can only using stress test clarify existence of coronary artery disease (blokage due to high LDL, low HDL)?
Stress test is good.: Stress test is designed to detect coronary artery disease. It is not a perfect test, but very good. If you have a normal test you are very unlikely to have any significant fixed blockage of any coronary artery. Blockage is not due to high LDL or low HDL - there are associations, but causality is another story. ...Read more

45y, f having rapid heartbeat and high BP sometimes, diagnosis unstable angina II b, in angiography test having mild coronary artery disease. Need advise?
After Ds is Advanced: Though dominant human behavior, physicians are trained to wait for evidence of advanced disease, largely in this order of ?ing ability to detect disease: 1. Calcification in the artery walls, 2. Obstructions visible on coronary angiograms or ct, 3. Symptoms & evidence of heart damage; typically the last detected/recognized 4. Stress tests. | for a better alternative: optimize the driving factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chronic is Typical: Artery disease, especially in the heart arteries, is dominant human behavior, typically starts in childhood yet is typically ignored for decades because it remains asymptomatic until plaque ruptures release debris, triggers clots & suddenly blocks blood flow. These plaque ruptures are the basis for acute symptomatic disease. Thus best to treat the driving factors early, not wait for symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CAD: Coronary artery disease, just as disease in other arteries, is the result of a long time process initiated by: 1. Genetic pre-disposition 2. Uncontrolled/untreated high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol/triglycerides 3. Smoking, obesity, lack of exercise, stress. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anatomy: Hello noni -- i think you are referring to a coronary anatomy -- so for every procedure and surgery, the surgeon must know the anatomy of the organ they are trying to operate -- and in case of coronary anatomy, they vary some, so diagnostic evaluation is done preceding any surgical contemplation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The leading cause of death and disability in adults in the U.S. It develops when lipid (fatty) plaques builds up in the arteries, thereby stopping blood flow to the organ supplied by that artery. If the artery supplies the heart, blockage causes a heart attack. If the blockage is in a brain vessel, the ...Read more
