Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Hi thanks for getting in touch, could you tell me a little more about what you'd like to discuss?
Hi, I wouldn't say a normal blood pressure (or even slightly low) rules out cardiac disease as frankly we all start laying down cholesterol inside our heart's arteries from around age 10. The difference high blood pressure and persistently high cholesterol makes is that it rapidly increases this process and exaggerates it. I know I'm being a little finnicky there but the way to look at it is that with a normal BP and relatively low/normal cholesterol the life risk is very low indeed.
Remembering that the prick tests aren't the most accurate and also just like you said the LDL/HDL ratios etc 5.2 wouldn't be classed as particularly high at all no.
It could be either way really, not usually far off of the mark however.
You're so welcome, you could always use more spinach for the iron content and ease back just a touch on the red meat. Come back if you've questions any time. All the best :)
