Superko, Robert H:


2004, ISBN: 9781405040990

Hardcover, ID: 58018100

Chicago: The Year Book Publishers, Inc., 1941. "With special consideration of the heart and lungs" - focused on the principles of physical examination of the heart and lungs. Illustrated. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket., The Year Book Publishers, Inc., 1941, London: Rodale International Ltd, 2004. <B> In this lucid and revolutionary book, cardiologist Robert Superko counsels readers about how to outwit their genes by identifying "metabolic markers" that predict future heart attacks. <P><B> "To make a preemptive strike, you have to know which factors are putting you in harm's way," he explains. So rather than focusing on cholesterol count, Superko outlines a patient-doctor partnership to create a personal risk profile he calls a "cardiac fingerprint." Here's the drill: Through a detailed self-assessment, patients identify a series of risk factors (family history, age, physical traits, medical conditions). If the risk profile is high, the next step is a physician- ordered blood test to identify metabolic markers (for example, C-reactive protein, fibrinogen and lipoprotein) that indicate high risk for heart attack. Depending on the results, tests such as a carotid or intra-vascular ultrasound can pinpoint heart disease. With this data in hand, Dr. Superko is convinced that patients have the power to change their cardiac destiny. For each significant risk, he suggests prescriptive keys in diet, activity level, nutrition and medication. With writer Laura Tucker, Dr. Superko demystifies complex issues about heart health. His ideas are compelling and optimistic-he believes in a future when every heart attack will be an anomaly. The only challenge may be persuading your cholesterol counting doctor. --Barbara Mackoff --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Product Description Heart attacks are preventable; fatalities from heart attacks should be virtually unheard of; and heart disease can be controlled, possibly even reversed, says renowned researcher and cardiologist H. Robert Superko, M.D. In his groundbreaking work, Before the Heart Attacks, Dr. Superko for the first time outlines his innovative program to the public. Dr. Superko was among the first physicians to question why standard screening tests missed so many pending heart attacks, and his search for the answer evolved into an entirely new approach to diagnosing, preventing, and treating heart disease. The key to this groundbreaking cardiology is a new generation of screening tests that allow doctors to go beyond early detection of heart disease, to predict problems before they occur. Now doctors can step in and give you an individualized action plan that can forestall the disease before you suffer a first symptom! By targeting the metabolic and genetic underpinnings that can lead to tomorrow's heart attacks, you have the power to change your cardiac destiny. So rather than waiting until you require invasive surgery, you can help to sidestep the devastation of advanced heart disease by adopting today the right dietary and exercise plans and taking the right supplements and, if necessary, medications. <blockquote><B> What truly distinguishes Dr. Superko's approach is the ability it gives us to customize treatment in a far more patient-specific manner than ever before. That way it is possible to strike the disease before it strikes you! Read this book, make an appointment with your doctor, and get a new lease on a long and healthy life for your heart.</B><P>.
