Question #1 Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
Hello, David
I strongly agree with you that CAD occurs when there is a building-up of plague within
the arteries responsible for supplying blood to the heart and throughout the whole body.
Cholesterol and fatty foods indeed cause this building up. I like how to expound on how this
building up causes the arteries to be small and, as a result blocking the blood supply. Your
explicit expounding on the signs of coronary arteries disease is fantastic. It is clear for
everybody to understand. You have outlined chest pain or angina as the main sign, which is
true. I am impressed by how you go the extra mile to explain how chain pain happens to be. I
agree with you that it is influenced by the failure of the heart to receive enough blood flow.
Coronary artery disease is one of the significant causes of mortality in developing and
developed nations. Various factors, including hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity, smoking,
dyslipidemia, and diabetes, pose a substantial threat to the development of the disease (Malakar
et al., 2019). I agree with you that dyslipidemia dictates that the body has too much LDL instead
of HDL, which causes atherosclerosis, where plague builds. I like how you link smoking with
CAD, as smoking makes the blood vessels swollen, narrowing the blood vessels. Furthermore,
your explanation of how diabetes leads to coronary arteries disease is fantastic, and I love it.
Indeed diabetes plays a significant role in the damage of blood vessels within the body.
Additionally, I am impressed by the tests you recommend for diagnosing cardiovascular
disease. For sure, blood tests will help determine a person’s status and the threat of obtaining
cardiovascular disease. You recommended a balanced diet and exercise as the primary fight
against some risk factors, which I concur with you. Providing other medication options like
insulin and statins is beneficial to the affected persons.
