Need Information. Both labs and risk factors are important in knowing cardiovascular (cvd) risk. More than cholesterol, cvd is related to the number of LDL (ldl-p) and HDL particles (hdl-p). Because cholesterol in LDL and HDL particles is highly variable cholesterol levels often disagree with particle number. When cholesterol and particle number disagree cvd risk tracks with ldl-p and hdl-p, not ldl-c or hdl-c. Read more...

Are there lifestyle changes that really make getting coronary artery disease less likely?

Lifestyle changes. There are risk factors you can't control, like family history and diseases you've had that put you at risk. Most of the risk factors are within your control, such as diet and exercise to keep you LDL low and your HDL high. Discuss preventive measures with your doctor as everyone can benefit from this, get regular checkups and blood tests to help plan prevention. Do not smoke or take drugs. Read more...
Absolutely. Lifestyle changes likely have more effect on preventing coronary artery disease than any "medical intervention". The big ones are not smoking, regular exercise, and what is sometimes described as a "mediterranean diet": abundant fruits and vegetables, olive oil as the principal source of fat, fish and poultry consumed in low to moderate amounts, red meat in low amounts, red wine in low amounts.

I have hbp and triple coronary artery disease, just checked my b/p, only 148/86: pulse 112. Why does my heart feel like it's beating extremely fast?

Tachycardia. A 'normal' heart rate is between 60-100 beats per minute. At 112 you have a tachycardia or fast heart rate. There are several possible reasons for this. It might be that you have an arrhythmia or irregular heart rate such as atrial fibrillation. It is also possible that your normal heart is simply beating too fast. The only way to know for sure is to have an ECG performed. Read more...
Tachycardia. Your heart feels like it's beating fast because it is! normal heart rate is 60-100. By definition, you have tachycardia. Probably because you have high blood pressure along with the fast heart rate, that is why you are feeling it. (most people don't feel their heart beating). Talk with your fp about adding a beta blocker to the Diovan (valsartan) hct so you can lower your pressure and rate! Read more...
Tachycardia. Pulse of 112 is extremely fast, especially if you're just sitting there doing nothing. This could be due to anemia, dehydration or heart rhythm issue. Systolic blood pressure should be <140 while diastolic should be <90. Diovan (valsartan) hct lowers BP but not heart rate. Bottom line: go see your doctor. Go to hospital er if lightheaded, dizzy, chest pain, nausea, sweaty, bad heartburn etc. Read more...
