Coronary Artery Disease: Risks & Treatment

Coronary Artery Disease is a common cause of death in both men and women in the US. This disease is also known as coronary heart disease or ischemic heart disease.

It contains a higher risk of heart disease or heart failure. Sometimes it is preventable with timely proper treatment. But the delay may become the cause of your death.

Cholesterol: Its Most Common Cause

Cholesterol contains the LDL or Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol. This is known to be the worst kind of cholesterol that builds up in the available space in the arteries.

Ultimately, you have to suffer from Coronary Artery Disease. This whole process is known as atherosclerosis.

Nicholas Amoroso, MD, a cardiologist at the Medical University of South Carolina said that this disease is an extremely dangerous disease.

According to a report, 80% of young adults found to be affected by this disease.

Other causes of the disease include smoking, tobacco intake, overweight, physical inactiveness, etc. This also includes people whose fast food or artificial fat intake is too high.


According to Amoroso, if coronary artery disease is known, you may face symptoms like a heart attack.

He suggested that the patient with known coronary artery disease should pay attention to their symptoms.

He also recommends a healthy lifestyle for everyone, especially people suffering from it. 

Your changed lifestyle should include eating low sodium, low trans fat diet and to avoid tobacco smoking.
