Are diabetics more prone to silent ischemia?

Yes: It seems that diabetes affects nerves and pain perception. Diabetics often injure feet and can get infections without noticing. Likewise they may suffer coronary ischemia without perception or it sometimes manifests as severe GI distress with nausea and vomiting but no chest pain. A sudden change in energy, nausea/vomiting or shortness of breath in a diabetic should prompt further evaluation. ...Read more

Result as I mentioned above, ie: mildly positive to ischemia?

Not sure: Please be more clear about your question. If you're referring to an earlier question, please reference it. If you had a stress test and the results were positive for ischemia, then you need to see a cardiologist for further evaluation, but that is the extent of advice I can give you with the limited insight I have in your problem right now. ...Read more

113/69 pulse rate 85 is that good? And they said I have reversal ischemia would it be this normal if I had that?

Good Bo: Congratulations on having a normal blood pressure. I assume you have had a cardiac stress test that shows reversible cardiac ischemia. While many people with coronary artery disease often also have high blood pressure, you can have normal blood pressure and still develop coronary artery disease. Smoking, diet and genetics as well as blood pressure play a role. Talk to your doctor about risk fac. ...Read more

What does reversible ischemia mean?

What does reversible ischemia mean?

At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. ...Read more

What does ischemia cause in the body?

Other way 'round: Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. ...Read more

What is the major cause of inferior ischemia?

What is the major cause of inferior ischemia?

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read more
