Heart Disease Hides in Seemingly Healthy Youngsters



Heart Disease Hides in Seemingly Healthy Youngsters

New research presented at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Vancouver reiterates the old adage that “you can’t judge a book by its cover.”

As it turns out, investigators found that almost half of the seemingly healthy-looking study volunteers — trim 18- to 35-year-olds with normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels — actually had MRI scans revealing already-thickening blood vessel walls.

So, how do you know if that “picture of health” in the mirror is misleading (without an expensive MRI)?

We spoke to URMC cardiology chief Dr. Charles Lowenstein to find out.
