    AHA President Suffers A Heart Attack Monday Morning.

    Post by Eddie on Tue Nov 14 2017, 17:34

    "The president of the American Heart Association, John Warner, had a “mild heart attack” on Monday morning, according to the AHA. Warner received a stent at an undisclosed hospital. The AHA said he is “doing well.” Warner is 52.

    The attack occurred while the AHA’s annual scientific sessions meeting was being held in Anaheim, California. Warner, an interventional cardiologist, has been the CEO of UT Southwestern Hospital in Dallas since 2012. Warner has an MD from Vanderbilt University and a MBA from the University of Tennessee. He completed his residency training in internal medicine at UT Southwestern and his cardiology fellowship at Duke University.

    Upon hearing the news Sek Kathiresan (Broad Institute) tweeted: “Unbelievable. He just spoke last night about the many males in his family being affected by coronary disease. Our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery."

    I wish this man a full and speedy recovery, it makes you wonder, if this man cannot avoid a heart attack, what chance for the rest of us?

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    His excuse will probably be that he didn't take a high enough dose of statins and still ate too much (saturated) fat.

    OTOH this just might make some cardiologists engage their brains.
