Mine is also hereditary. I had my mitral valve repaired last October and during a routine cardiac catheterization they found the blockages. I assumed my dad had a heart attack because of his smoking, but apparently he had high cholesterol too. I stopped eating red meat and pork and try to limit all fat. Giving up sugar has been harder.
