How much of a higher risk for heart disease does someone with Frank’s sign (or the beginnings of it) have as opposed to the rest of the population?

Is there a difference between "no frank aneurysm formation is appreciated." and a "normal study." when written on brain mra reports?If yes what.....?
Symantics: Your physician may have specifically asked the question "is there an aneurysm?" the correct response of the radiologist is to answer the question directly, which is what is meant by "no frank aneurysm..." if that question wasn't specifically asked, the radiologist would likely conclude in his impression that the study is normal. Mra would not likely see an aneurysm smaller than 5mm. ...Read more

Is it ok to have 2cups of 100% natural green tea everyday? Does it help with weight loss? Should it be frank in empty stomach or with food?
Green tea is fine: It does contain some caffiene so observe if it keeps you awake or not. If so, don't drink w/in several hours of bed time. It is a mild fat burner, increases metabolism.
