Log in to the American Heart Association and register at this link: https://www.heart.org/gglRisk/main_en_US.html to check your risk for a heart attack 🙂
Here is an example:
A male, 35 yearls old, 300lbs with a waist circumference over 40, LDL-180 Total Cholesterol-280, BP 130/90 has a 6% chance of having a heart attack in ten years.
That same male that eats vegetarian and loses weight to 174lbs, LDL-70, TC-280, BP-110/70, Total Cholesterol-140 drops their chance of heart attack to less than 1%.
This is for a man with low blood sugar and no family history of heart disease. HDL was input at 50. If you do not have recent blood work, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Ben-Zur or contact your physician.
