Like Father Like Son? Y Chromosome Linked to Heart Disease

Like Father Like Son? Y Chromosome Linked to Heart Disease | Heart diseases and Heart Conditions | Scoop.it

Dad may be credited with more than just your facial features. A new study suggests that heart disease risk may be passed from father to son.

The researchers focused on genetic markers on the Y chromosome — which is present only in male DNA (women have two X chromosomes) — and found that men with a certain genetic variant were 50% more likely to have coronary artery disease than those without it. It has to do with its influence on inflammation and immunity.

The findings do not suggest that the variant accounts fully for men’s heart disease risk, or that scanning Y chromosomes would help predict an individual man’s risk of developing coronary artery disease. But the association offers an interesting avenue for further scientific inquiry.

Half of heart patients don't stick with meds

Half of heart patients don't stick with meds | Heart diseases and Heart Conditions | Scoop.it

Take Home Message:  It's known that patients don't always follow doctors' orders and few systems exist  to address this.  In my experience, the best way to stay on track is to have regular (twice annual) follow-up with a physician who is monitoring critical values like cholesterol & blood pressure and reviews the medication list to explain the utility and benefit of continued medication adherence.  It's not sophisticated, doesn't involve technology, but does work.

========================

Just half of people who are given a prescription to prevent heart disease continue to get their medications refilled over time. And among people who have already had a heart attack, one out of every three fails to continue getting their prescription refilled. The studies looked at seven medications, including aspirin, blood pressure drugs, and cholesterol-lowering statins, typically intended for life-long use. They estimate that 130,000 people die each year because they don't adhere to their prescriptions.
