Is It Possible To Drop Heart Attack Risk To Zero
10 yr heart attack risk. I'm at the lowest possible number for 55 yr old male. 3% Is there anyway one can achieve ZERO risk?
Kinda sorta but no: I used http://tools.acc.org/ASCVD-Risk-Estimator/ to calculate risk. There's calculated 10yr risk & optimized 10yr risk. Latter based upon following: "Total cholesterol of 170 mg/dL, HDL-cholesterol of 50 mg/dL, Systolic BP of 110 mm Hg, Not taking medications for hypertension, Not a diabetic, Not a smoker" So if you can achieve better numbers than these, yes, you improve but zero risk? No. ...Read more

Hello, : Hello, there are a number of possible reasons that you left eye could be red & painful. Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the surface of the eyeball and is commonly known as "pink eye." it might just be from irritation to the eye or allergies. If it is caused by a virus or bacteria, it could be quite contagious. Your eyes could be bloodshot because they are irritated by a variety of things like wind, dry air, cold exposure, dust, etc. The fact that your eye is red and painful by itself, does not mean that you are having a stroke or a heart attack. What would be of particular concern would be eye pain with a change to your vision. If that occurs i would recommend being seen right away. Because you have a complicated medical history, if this does not resolve fairly quickly i would notify your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
