Risk of coronary heart disease is associated with triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in women

Risk of coronary heart disease is associated with triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in women | Nutrimedia | Scoop.it

The graded risk for patients is well shown in these charts.  The cut point for the HDL for women is less than 50 and for men les than 40. The triglyceride cutpoint is 150 for both men and women.

The bars are very steep for women (on the left).  Blue is the patients with both good level of HDL & triglyceride.  The purple bar is for patients with both levels in an undesitrable range.  For women the incidence is 2.4 for every 1000 person years in the best group and 13.4 in the worst group.

These parameters diffentiate risk for men less well (low rate of 13.1 and high rate of 22.1)

My comment: More efforts to develop connected health for consumers. Will this be valuable? Probably not since a mobile health option that allows heart rate assessment at times throughout the day would be more valuable for assessment in health and disease.

New high-tech mirrors are melding with digital components to act as health-monitoring devices that measure vital signs, in-shop equipment to try on clothes virtually and displays to keep track of news and information.
