cardiovascular disease
Cardiovascular Disease
  • Includes heart attack, stroke
  • Leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • Annually, 500,000 people die of CHD in the U.S. (1 million including strokes and other CVD)
  • Each year, 1.5 million Americans have a heart attack
cardiovascular disease4
Cardiovascular Disease
  • Symptoms take years to develop
  • Plaque build-up can begin in childhood
  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • Cerebrovascular accident (stroke)
pathophysiology of atherosclerosis
Pathophysiology of Atherosclerosis
  • Vessel lining is injured (often at branch points) →
  • Plaque is deposited to repair injured area →
  • Plaque thickens, incorporating cholesterol, protein, muscle cells, and calcium (rate depends partly on level of LDL-C in the blood) →
pathophysiology of atherosclerosis cont
Pathophysiology of Atherosclerosis (cont)
  • Arteries harden and narrow as plaque builds, making them less elastic →
  • Increasing pressure causes further damage →
  • A clot or spasm closes the opening, causing a heart attack
heart attack myocardial infarction8
Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction)
  • When blood supply to the heart is disrupted, the heart is damaged
  • May cause the heart to beat irregularly or stop altogether
  • 25% of people do not survive their first heart attack
symptoms of a heart attack
Symptoms of a Heart Attack
  • Intense, prolonged chest pain or pressure
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting (especially women)
  • Dizziness (especially women)
  • Weakness
  • Jaw, neck and shoulder pain (especially women)
  • Irregular heartbeat
factors that may bring on a heart attack in at risk persons
Factors that May Bring On a Heart Attack in At-Risk Persons
  • Dehydration
  • Emotional stress
  • Strenuous physical activity when not physically fit
  • Waking during the night or getting up in the morning
  • Eating a large, high-fat meal (increases risk of clotting)
symptoms of stroke brain attack
Symptoms of Stroke (Brain Attack)
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache
blood lipids lipoproteins
Blood Lipids (Lipoproteins)
  • Lipids (fat) cannot mix with water
  • Blood is high in water
  • Lipids cannot travel in blood without help
  • Lipoproteins are formed to carry lipids
lipoproteins combine
Lipoproteins combine
  • Lipids (triglycerides, cholesterol)
  • Protein
  • Phospholipids
low density lipoproteins ldl c
Low-Density Lipoproteins (LDL-C)
  • Also called “bad cholesterol)
  • Contain relatively large amounts of fat, and less protein
  • Deposits cholesterol in arteries
  • Thus, ↑ LDL-C is associated with ↑ CVD risk
  • Serum LDL-C should be < 130 mg/dL
high density lipoproteins hdl
High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL)
  • Also called “good cholesterol”
  • Relatively high in protein, lower in lipid
  • Acts as scavenger, carrying cholesterol from arteries to liver
    • Liver packages as bile
    • Excretes
  • ↑ HDL-Cis associated with ↓ risk of CVD
  • Serum HDL-C should be >60 mg/dL (optimal) or at least >40 in men and 50 in women
  • The most diet-responsive blood lipid
  • Should be ≤150 mg/dL in fasting state

Lower blood triglycerides by:

  • Not overeating
  • Limiting alcohol and simple sugars
  • Spreading meals throughout the day
  • Including fatty fish in the diet
  • Controlling diabetes if present
  • Performing regular physical activity
  • Not smoking
total cholesterol
Total Cholesterol
  • Includes HDL-C, LDL-C, and a fraction of the triglycerides
  • Total cholesterol should be ≤ 200 mg/dL
  • Total cholesterol does not tell whole story

blood pressure
Blood Pressure
  • Measured in mmHg
  • Systolic blood pressure: the pressure in the arterial blood vessels associated with the pumping of the heart
  • Diastolic blood pressure: the pressure in the arterial blood vessels when the heart is between beats
hypertension either
Hypertension: Either
  • Systolic blood pressure > 140 mmHg
  • Diastolic blood pressure > 90 mmHg
risk factors other than ldl for cvd
Risk Factors (other than LDL) for CVD
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Hypertension (BP ≥140/90 mmHg or on anti-hypertensive tx
  • Low HDL-C* (<40 mg/dL)
  • Family history of premature CHD in first degree relative (in male <55 years, in female <65 years)
  • Age (men ≥45 years, women ≥55 years)

*HDL-C ≥ 60 mg/dL counts as a negative risk factor

Source: ATP-III Guidelines, NHLBI, accessed 2-2005

risk factors other than ldl for cvd29
Risk Factors (other than LDL) for CVD
  • Diabetes (considered equivalent to a history of CHD)
  • Obesity
  • Inactivity

Source: ATP-III Guidelines, NHLBI, accessed 2-2005

screening for cvd risk
Screening for CVD Risk
  • Everyone 20 and older should have his cholesterol measured at least every 5 years
  • Lipoprotein profile: includes TC, LDL-C HDL-C, and TG
  • At least should include TC and HDL-C
  • If TC> 200 mg/dL or HDL-C< 40 mg/dL, obtain full lipid profile

Total Cholesterol
  • John and Marty each have total cholesterol levels of 200 mg/dL.
  • Their health risk is different
total cholesterol is not enough

tlc dining out44
TLC: Dining Out
  • At fast food restaurants, go for salads, grilled (not fried or breaded) skinless chicken sandwiches, regular-sized hamburgers, or roast beef sandwiches
  • Avoid regular salad dressings and fatty sauces. Limit jumbo or deluxe burgers, sandwiches, french fries, and other foods.
other dietary interventions
Other Dietary Interventions
  • Cholestin (from Chinese red yeast) reduces cholesterol
  • Plant Stanols/Sterol Esters
    • Benecol and Take Control margarine
    • Cholesterol-lowering effects
    • Decrease absorption of cholesterol and lowers amount returning via enterohepatic circulation.
    • Liver takes up more cholesterol from the blood
omega 3 fatty acids
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
