Ask your physician or your cardiologist Why is atherosclerosis region-specific? Why do the blockages in arteries responsible for heart attacks and strokes occur in some regions of the body and not in others? Why do these blockages, or lesions, form in the large vessels close to the heart, feeding...

The largest blood viscosity study ever conducted was part of the Edinburgh Artery Study in the 1990s, which followed a random population of 1,592 middle-aged adults for a mean of 5 years. It showed that blood viscosity, after adjustment for age and sex, was significantly higher in patients...

The Edinburgh Artery Study, the largest clinical trial on blood viscosity ever conducted, showed that blood viscosity was significantly higher in adults who had heart attacks and strokes than those who did not. This link was highly significant even after adjustment for age and gender. Interestingly...

Numerous clinical studies have shown that type-II diabetics have higher systolic and diastolic viscosity than healthy non-diabetic people. Patients with metabolic syndrome have higher viscosity than those without, and viscosity scores can predict incident diabetes in initially non-diabetic adults....
