Since you are already a vegetarian the transition should be easy. Based on a model case presentation, we speculate that in the absence of traditional risk factors and in the context of an ongoing respiratory infection caused by a pro-inflammatory pathogen (M. pneumoniae) along with a past positive serologic history for potentially proven atherogenic microorganism (C. pneumoniae) and infection may elicit potentially pathogenic events on vascular wall cells and leukocytes of atheromatous lesions, supporting the hypothesis that such infections may potentiate atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Only your doctor can provide adequate diagnosis of any signs or symptoms and whether they are indeed Cardiovascular Disease symptoms. When atherosclerosis - the accumulation of fatty material, calcium and plaque (which is like a firm shell with a soft inner core containing cholesterol and as blood hits it, the plaque may crack open and expose its inner cholesterol core, which promotes blood clotting) in artery walls - occurs in the lining of the coronary arteries they become narrow, restricting the flow of blood....

They're taking the de-oxygenated blood away from the tissue of the heart. The magnitude of the association is striking: one study found that people with periodontal disease had a two times higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. 43) A 2010 study using pyrosequencing compared the bacterial diversity of atherosclerotic plaque, oral, and gut samples of 15 patients with atherosclerosis, and oral and gut samples of healthy controls. 44) The team concluded that there was a high degree of correlation between the presence of certain bacteria in the oral cavity (and to a somewhat lesser extent the gut) with bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.

Tziakas and associates (2009) evaulated the effect of statin therapy on CEM levels (a novel marker of CAD instability) during a 1-year follow-up in CAD patients. This can easily be heard with the stethoscope. Lastly, the incremental predictive value of Lp(a) measurement additive to that of traditional screening methods for global risk assessment has not been formally studied.

Data from 1988-1994 and 1999-2002 demonstrated an increased prevalence of hypertension in black individuals from 35.8% to 41.4%. (Although the prevalence in whites is increasing as well, it is not as dramatic a rise.) [13] This difference between the groups is attributed to factors other than race, because the prevalence of hypertension among blacks and whites is the same in the United Kingdom and because hypertension is not very common on the African continent.

Plaque characteristics as assessed by carotid ultrasound were found to be predictive of subsequent cerebral ischaemic events. 131 Patients with echolucent stenotic plaques had a much higher risk of cerebrovascular events than subjects with other plaque types. He had a "near" heart attack following his treatment of angioplasty (angioplasty is quite dangerous and of questionable long-term value). This pressure pushes against the mitral valve, which is now shut since we do not want blood flowing backwards into the left atrium.
