Most of us are familiar with the late-stage signs of #HeartDisease: pain, shortness of breath, or an irregular heartbeat.

But the earliest signs of an unhealthy heart can be very subtle.

They’re often ignored or chalked up to other causes, especially in young people.

I don't have to tell you that life is getting more expensive. And with all the stress, #hearthealth is worse than ever.

Here's How:

4️⃣Atherosclerosis

There is no magic pill, supplement, or medicine you can take to reduce the effects of #cortisol on your heart.

The only solution is to implement stress reduction techniques:

increasing your exercise
avoiding cheap food
finding outlets for stress

Doing this space yesterday reminded me of my own Hypertension diagnosis & how it affected my life:

Firstly, I was shocked when my dr told me I have a high blood pressure. My BP had always been on average 110/70 for MANY years. I did annual checks regularly “for points”..
But when I started my practice I “got busy” & slacked a little (a lot)..

2 yrs went by. Life happened. I went through patches of STRESS - work & personal life.

Then I went for a full medical because I was going to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. Then BOOM - BP is around 150/110..
We think it’s white coat hypertension syndrome: that I’m nervous as a dr patient.

Off I go to Mt Kili. My BP on the mountain fluctuates between 135/85 to 145/90 when we do daily checks with my guide.

Hike went more than well. Guide says I’m an overachiever for my summit time😁

New research from @JohnsHopkins about maternal health!

Vaught AJ, Minhas A, Boyer T et al. Incidence of essential hypertension but not echocardiographic abnormalities at four years with a history of preeclampsia with severe features.

#ph260720 #Moms

pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34182431/
In this new study, we followed up with women four years after they were diagnosed with preeclampsia during pregnancy. What type of research study is that?
#ph260720 #Epidemiology
Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific disorder that causes high blood pressure and evidence of damage to the kidneys and/or liver. Preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy impact between 5-8% of births in the US.

(1/11) How do you think overall cardiovascular mortality has changed in the United States from 1950 until now? #CVDPrevention2021 #ph260720
(2/11) It has decreased significantly! This has been due to reduction in risk factors and increases in medical and surgical therapies. @American_Heart and George Mensah (@NHLBI_Translate). Read “Decline in Cardiovascular Mortality” ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
#hearthealth #ph260720
(3/11) However, health disparities persist. Did you know that black adults are more likely to die from CVD than white adults in the US? @American_Heart and the Center for Health Metrics and Evaluation visual: heart.org/en/about-us/20…

A broad spectrum of #CVD toxicities can be seen with targeted therapies or #ICIs

Toxicities of one or the other can include cardiomyopathy, HF, myocarditis, venous or arterial thrombosis, progression of atherosclerosis, QTc prolongation, or arrhythmias

An eminent need is optimal risk management, surveillance, detection, and prevention

The heterogeneities of patient populations, risks, and disease spectra have complicated clinical and translation efforts
