Doctor Warrick Bishop is a practicing cardiologist, best selling author, and keynote speaker and who has a passion to help prevent heart disease on a global scale. What if you could plan NOT to have a heart attack?
PETER was a 35-year-old male with high cholesterol who had tried cholesterol-lowering tablets but had suffered aches and pains. He really didn’t want to be on medication unless it was clearly indicated. At our first meeting, he was fit and well, and was not on any regular medication. There was no history of premature coronary artery disease in his family although both his parents had had elevated cholesterol.
A key element to any new approach to primary prevention and risk assessment is the availability of, and accessibility to, imaging the coronary arteries using CT scanning.
I am 52 years of age, work in an office position and have always struggled with my weight. That, combined with a family history of heart disease, has worried me that I could die prematurely of a heart-related condition.
