Hi, it's Warrick Bishop here, and welcome to the Healthy Heart Network Live Monthly Online Show. So, thanks for joining us today. I'm looking to cover a couple of things. I thought I would talk about Vitamin D, I thought I would talk about plaque gets into coronary arteries, and I thought I would share with you a patient case from just recently.
Welcome to our new Healthy Heart Minute. Today's topic is about supplements to lower cholesterol.
Welcome to our new Healthy Heart Minute. Today's topic is about testing for the cholesterol panel.
People often wonder what a stent is. Well, a stent is the term that we use for the structure, which is really a cage that we use to open up arteries. Now, way back when I was a cardiology registrar, just starting off in the game, we had these fantastic clot busting medicines. So, when people came into hospital with a heart attack, a blocked artery, we could give them these clot busters. And we could break up the clot that had formed on a ruptured, plaque and start to reestablish blood flow. Well, that clot would often form on a tightly narrowed area.
I'm hoping to cover some questions that are coming from the group. I'm looking to share with you a little bit of teaching and some stuff to think about. And I'm also going to share with you a patient case that just popped up this week. So tonight, I'd like to start off by talking about fats and the role of fats in coronary artery disease, which is really common and people constantly ask me about, "what should I eat, doc and gee, if I've got coronary disease, should I cut down fat or should I increase fat? And what if I'm Keot or what if I'm not? And what if my carbs are down and is olive oil good or avocados good? And so forth.
