Cholesterol-Years: Why Starting LDL-C Reducing Strategies Earlier Matters

Ever wondered why it's crucial to address LDL cholesterol levels early in life? In this tweetorial, we'll explore the concept of "cholesterol-years"
and delve into the significance of starting LDL-C reducing strategies sooner rather than later. Let's dive in. #CholesterolYears #HeartHealth @ASPCardio @nationallipid
Understanding Cholesterol-Years
"Cholesterol-years" refers to the cumulative exposure of elevated LDL-C over a person's lifetime. The longer LDL-C levels remain high, the greater the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. Time is critical ! #LDLC @abccardio

#heartattack after a “normal” heart check up!

This 🧵 contains important information about #hearthealth.

58 year old gentleman from Canada came to #PulseHeart with chest pain of more than 12 hours duration. His ECG showed a major heart attack. 1/n Image
He delayed seeking medical attention because he had a heart check up done in the past few months and he was told that his heart is normal. The check up included ECG and an ECHO. 2/n
On the angiogram done immediately, (this Sunday), he had a total block of one of the major blood vessels supplying the heart. 3/n Image

Ignoring your heart health isn’t just reckless — it may even kill you.
In the US, there's a 1 in 4 chance that your death will be caused by heart disease.
Regardless of your age, gender, or wellness, taking stock of your #CardiovascularHealth today may save your life tomorrow.
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.
Subtle signs of an unhealthy heart include:

🧠 Mental health concerns
🛏️ Disrupted sleep
⚕️ Metabolic syndrome

Thankfully, there are plenty of things you can do to mitigate your risks and improve your #HeartHealth — starting with small, intentional changes.

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

Removing stress entirely just isn't feasible -but it's critical to manage stress to protect your health, heart, and metabolic wellness.

Here's How:
The cost-of-living crisis affects more than just your money. If you allow stress to control your life, it will quickly control your health as well.

Excess stress in the body has been associated with:
1️⃣High blood cholesterol
2️⃣High blood sugar
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
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.

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
