Hi, my name is Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I'm a preventative cardiologist. What does that mean? I'm the cardiologist who would like to see you before you have a problem with your heart. I want to see you while you're still well, and I want to keep you that way. I think medicine can be thought about a little bit like looking after your car. You can take it for regular servicing and make sure that the things that are able to be controlled, looked after, and maintained are looked after, controlled, and maintained. Or you can approach a tow truck mentality to your car's maintenance.
Everyone has a negative side and yours could be behind your cardiovascular problems. For Angela Peris, hearts and minds cut both ways, with the heart affecting emotions but also vice versa – understanding this can aid recovery and prevent a relapse.
The production of cholesterol within the body is predominantly within the liver. That process has a number of steps and one of the steps that produces cholesterol involves an enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase.
