Heart Health

It’s usually symptomless, often found incidentally, and life-threatening. It’s much more common in men than women, and the risk increases after age 60.

The list of conventional risk factors for cardiovascular disease does not include loss or lack of intimacy.   

It’s American Heart Month once again, a time when health officials scramble to action with trumpets blaring to remind the public about preventing heart disease. To be sure, much of the fanfare and accompanying advice is solid. Like cutting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, eating an anti-inflammatory diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, controlling high blood pressure, and avoiding diabetes, or managing it if you have it.

Patients usually seek medical attention regarding their cardiac risk when lab tests show their total cholesterol, triglycerides, or blood sugar levels to be high...

If you think high cholesterol levels means getting heart disease, think again! On this page, I tell you what I consider to be the top 12 risk factors for heart disease and having high cholesterol isn’t one of them!

No way, says Mark Houston, M.D., a leading expert on hypertension. The fact is that most physicians recognize and treat no more than the five top risk factors for coronary heart disease (also known as atherosclerosis): high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and smoking. And that’s not good enough!
