Primary & Secondary Heart Disease Prevention Trends

  • Category: Cardiology

In this video about “Primary & Secondary Heart Disease Prevention Trends,” Boulder Heart’s Nelson Trujillo, MD - board-certified cardiologist - and Maria Anderson, MD, FACC – board-certified in cardiac electrophysiology and lifestyle medicine – discuss:

  • Why it's worth a conversation with your doctor about the new proposed guidance for daily low-dose aspirin
  • Population recommendations vs. risk-benefit analysis for a particular illness
  • Our country's fascination with taking pills for prevention, instead of better lifestyle options (diet, sleep, smoking, alcohol, stress)
  • The FDA's new guidance asking food manufacturers and restaurants to cut the salt in their products over the coming 2½ years, hoping to reduce Americans' overall sodium intake by 12 percent.
