Causes, Symptoms & Natural Treatment For Arrhythmia | Dr Murray doctormurray.com
“..What Causes Arrhythmia?
Arrhythmias are primarily the result of a disturbance in the electrical system within the heart that stimulates the heart to beat. Arrhythmias can also occur when sets of heart muscles develop their own beat. Magnesium and potassium deficiencies are well-known nutritionally related causes of arrhythmia….”
7 Heart Tests That Could Save Your Life November 3, 2011 prevention.com
Think a stress test and a simple blood workup are all you need to assess your heart attack risk? Wrong.
“..For decades, doctors had nothing more sophisticated than a stress test to offer. Not anymore. Cardiologists now use advanced imaging and blood tests that give a much more accurate assessment of heart attack risk. “These tests are the best ways to tell who is in danger, because they can catch cardiovascular disease 20 to 30 years before it gets severe enough to cause a heart attack or stroke,” says Arthur Agatston, MD, an early champion of many of them…”
Lipid Profile: The Test | Lipid Profile At a Glance … – Lab Tests Online labtestsonline.org
“The lipid profile is used as part of a cardiac risk assessment to help determine an individual’s risk of heart disease and to help make decisions about what treatment may be best if there is borderline or high risk.
Lipids are a group of fats and fat-like substances that are important constituents of cells and sources of energy. Monitoring and maintaining healthy levels of these lipids is important in staying healthy. (For more on lipids, see the “What is being tested?” section.)
The results of the lipid profile are considered along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow-up. Depending on the results and other risk factors, treatment options may involve lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise or lipid-lowering medications such as statins.
A lipid profile typically includes:…
Use of the updated risk calculator and guidelines remains controversial. Many still use the older guidelines from the NCEP Adult Treatment Panel III to evaluate lipid levels and CVD risk:
Optimal: Less than 100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L); for those with known disease (ASCVD or diabetes), less than 70 mg/dL (1.81 mmol/L) is optimal
Near/above optimal: 100-129 mg/dL (2.59-3.34 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 130-159 mg/dL (3.37-4.12 mmol/L)
High: 160-189 mg/dL (4.15-4.90 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 190 mg/dL (4.90 mmol/L)
Desirable: Less than 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 200-239 mg/dL (5.18 to 6.18 mmol/L)
High: 240 mg/dL (6.22 mmol/L) or higher
Low level, increased risk: Less than 40 mg/dL (1.0 mmol/L) for men and less than 50 mg/dL (1.3 mmol/L) for women
Average level, average risk: 40-50 mg/dL (1.0-1.3 mmol/L) for men and between 50-59 mg/dl (1.3-1.5 mmol/L) for women
High level, less than average risk: 60 mg/dL (1.55 mmol/L) or higher for both men and women
Desirable: Less than 150 mg/dL (1.70 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 150-199 mg/dL(1.7-2.2 mmol/L)
High: 200-499 mg/dL (2.3-5.6 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L)
Optimal: Less than 130 mg/dL (3.37 mmol/L)
Near/above optimal: 130-159 mg/dL (3.37-4.12mmol/L)
Borderline high: 160-189 mg/dL (4.15-4.90 mmol/L)
High: 190-219 mg/dL (4.9-5.7 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 220 mg/dL (5.7 mmol/L)

You don’t need a doctor to interpret a lipid panel August 25, 2015Home By Ashley Rekem chronicconditions.bangordailynews.com
“..The traditional lipid panel does have its limitations. It provides a look at triglyceride levels, which is important, but does not show the size and number of the lipoproteins traveling in the blood. LDL and HDL are lipoproteins that shuttle a variety of fats. The lipid panel only measures the amount of cholesterol they contain.There are sophisticated lipoprotein tests like the NMR lipid profile test that are much more extensive in this regard.
I would like the get an NMR test at some point, but the standard lipid panel has still proven useful to me, and is also quite cheap to have done at a direct lab service…”

“…Fortunately, there are ways to stop them almost as soon as they start. Better yet, prevent them from happening in the first place by practicing stress-reducing techniques, screening your medications, and adding some heart-healthy foods and supplements to your menu.
• Get at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four times a week. Walking, running, and tennis are all excellent choices. Just be sure you don’t become too focused on beating your previous time or outscoring an opponent—that will increase your stress. Exercise at a pace that allows you to comfortably carry on a conversation.

How I cured my arrhythmia – medical documentation available, from youtube.com
“Uploaded on Aug 11, 2011
You can review the medical documentation and read full story here: http://www.mcarticles.com/a/how-i-cur…
Do you trust the doctors to help you whenever you have a health problem? Well, what if they can’t? This is how my story begins.
I’ve had arrhythmia for almost a decade. The truth is it didn’t bother me in everyday life, but I still wanted to get rid of it because it is not a natural state of the body and I didn’t want it to become a more serious problem in the future.
So I went to the doctor who tried a few pills on me, none of which worked. Then they sent me to another doctor who also couldn’t do anything about it.
Frustrated as I was – I thought — if the doctors can’t do anything about it I’ll try to cure it on my own. I started by reading about nutrition and progressively eliminating certain foods from my diet which were known to cause arrhythmia. Let me tell you: aspartame, margarine, MSG and so on — all of these are very bad for your health.
After two years of such regime I repeated the tests. And you know what — ma arrhythmia was gone. I’m as healthy as any normal person.
If you want to read the whole story along with complete medical documentation, follow the link below.
My advice to everybody would be: if your medication just isn’t cutting it for you, try altering your diet like I did. Perhaps after some time you won’t need the medication at all.
Good luck to all of you! Bye!”
