Nov 17, 2019 · 100% blocked artery in Heart & Blood Health

I just read of a gov't study on heart procedures. Bypass surgery and angioplasty with stents only gets the clogged arteries on the heart. The rest of your circulatory system is probably clogged as well (a life time of ham and cheese omelets). The medicine only approach may be advisable.They describe the medicine as Baby aspirin, cholesterol statin and blood pressure meds.

My doctors at MAYO-Rochester opened up my clogged artery with four stents "and" prescribed the medicines also: aspirin, Simvistatin and Benazipril. You might say I got the relief of repairs to the major blockages and the meds for any clogging that might occur later.

For me, weight loss is nearly a full time job. I did a big study on SODIUM and another study on calories burned while walking uphill. The YMCA is helpful and I have Silver Sneakers plan with my HUMANA plan. I dropped from 340 to 240 and kept it off for several years. Now I've let bread and cheese back into my diet and I've been at 280 for several years…a plateau as they say.

I was told that capillaries had grown around my clogged artery and they supplied enough blood to prevent HA. I had been on weight loss for 15 months and lost 100 pounds with diet and long walks uphill.

@capper I had four stents put into my artery where I had a 98% blockage and three at 70%. I wound up staying over night and was released the neext day with the caution not to lift anything heavy for three days. That was 2008 and no complications yet.

I guess I hit your REPLY box and not the Clapper who has 100% blockage. My doctor said anything more than three bypasses and you get bragging rights.

In 2008 I had angioplasty and four stents to fix my clogged artery; one 98% and three at 70%. MAYO-Rochester told me I could have open heart and bypasses, angioplasty and stents or a medicine only treatment. Angioplasty was easy by comparison to chest cutting. I was a day in bed, an over night observation period and then released with the caution not to lift anything heavy for a couple days. After three days I was free to drive back to California

Mar 10, 2019 · Salty Facts – Heart Failure and Sodium in Heart & Blood Health

I have lived in the PacNW (Spokane, Yakima and Renton) and know some of what you speak. A drought condition on the mighty Columbia occurred in 1977 or so. The water rights table from 200 years ago lists an Indian tribe near Portland as first served. They have a salmon business and require a certain minimum flow to guarantee spawning. The hop farmers around Yakima had trouble. Brewmeisters from around the world met in Yakima (60,000 at the time).

My take away from the DataNutition website was salmon is salmon no matter how it is raised. The nutritionist supported that idea. I eat at a Chinese buffet that has wonderful salmon. It is moist and very tender. I imagine it is steamed if that is a cooking method.
