Ironically, my own doctor has since needed a quadruple bypass; further reiterating that none of us know what our arteries are like, & our real risk of cardiovascular disease!
Cholestorol The Silent Killer, causes the vast majority of Heart Attacks. This is my Heart Attack documentary, with my tips to avoid Heart Disease and heart attacks, What’s involved with an Angiogram having had a heart attack AUGUST 2019.
A heart attack occurs when one or more of your coronary arteries become blocked. Over time, a coronary artery can narrow from the buildup of various substances, including cholesterol (atherosclerosis). This condition, known as coronary artery disease, causes most heart attacks.
Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to your heart and other parts of your body. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood.
Causes of strokes include ischemia (loss of blood supply) or hemorrhage (bleeding) in the brain. People at risk for stroke include those who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and those who smoke.
REMEMBER: Angiograms only check the arteries near your HEART – Cholestorol build up MAY be also present in other arteries of the body, hence why keeping your LDL (‘BAD’ Cholestorol) levels low, along with necessary life-style changes, is paramount in helping preventing heart attacks & strokes.
LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL. Levels of 100 to 129 mg/dL are acceptable for people with no health issues but may be of more concern for those with heart disease or heart disease risk factors. A reading of 130 to 159 mg/dL is borderline high and 160 to 189 mg/dL is high.
* It is paramount to discuss taking additional non-prescription suppliments (including fish oil tablets) with your doctor first, as many may conflict with other medications.
Cholesterol itself (whether being transported by LDL or HDL) is exactly the same. Cholesterol is simply a necessary ingredient that is required to be regularly delivered around the body for the efficient healthy development, maintenance, and functioning of our cells. The difference is in the “transporters” (HDL and LDL).
The fact is that both HDL and LDL are essential for the human body’s delivery logistics to work effectively. Problems can occur, however, when the LDL particles are both tiny and their carrying capacity outweighs the transportation potential of available HDL, which can result in more cholesterol being transported around the body with diminished resources for returning excess capacity to the liver.
** TECHNICALLY, the common terms ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol ARE somewhat misleading – I understand it makes it easier to call it that. KEEP taking the prescribed cholesterol medications, at least until such time as levels are ideal by the extra low standards now desired (by heart foundation etc) after any heart attack or heart surgery, by doing what you can with diet etc, But NEVER STOP without first consulting your treating doctor or specialist. You may have to keep taking some medication…and, ill effects or not, that has to be better than dying

Essentia Health is an integrated healthcare system with facilities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Idaho. As of 2014 it has over 12,000 employees, including 1,500 physicians and credentialed practitioners. The network includes 17 hospitals, 66 clinics, eight long-term care facilities, two assisted living facilities, four independent living facilities, and one research institute. Essentia was accredited as an Accountable Care Organization by the National Committee for Quality Assurance in 2013.
Essentia Health was formed in 2004, as the parent company of the partnership between the Benedictine Health System and St. Mary’s/Duluth Clinic Health System (SMDC). Essentia Health acquired Dakota Clinic/Innovis Health in January 2008. In 2010, Essentia Health integrated the resources of all of its member organizations – SMDC Health System, Innovis Health, Brainerd Lakes Health, Essentia Community Hospitals and Clinics, and Essentia Institute of Rural Health – and united them under the one name, Essentia Health.
Essentia Health has more than two dozen Catholic-sponsored clinics, hospitals, and other facilities. The roots of Essentia’s Catholic facilities trace back to a group of Benedictine nuns who established St. Mary’s Hospital, Essentia Health’s oldest hospital, in Duluth in 1888.
