Vascular Manifestations of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

Not too long ago, it was thought that inflammation of blood vessels was the sole manifestation of systemic autoimmune diseases. Today, however, we know that disorders of coagulation, injuries to both neutrophils and endothelial cells, and certain lipids and amino acids are all intricately involved in the development of vascular disease. How are all these processes linked? What strategies can we employ or develop to halt the progression of vascular damage? What are the best ways to control acute vasculitis and vasospasm therapeutically? What are the risks and benefits of various strategies for the prevention of clotting? How soon should we initiate preventive strategies that protect blood vessels from arteriosclerosis in people with acute rheumatic diseases? What should be the nature of those strategies?Vascular Manifestations of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases provides answers to all these questions. Ronald Asherson, Richard Cervera,Steven B. Abramson, Jean-Charles Piette, and Douglas Triplett- all international experts in the field-have assembled a collection of works that provide a comprehensive analysis of vascular irregularities. Now that most individuals survive the onset of acute systemic autoimmune diseases and live for decades more, halting the long-term attack on vasculature is increasingly important. Vascular Manifestations of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases not only describes the clinical symptoms of vascular diseases; it also covers in one volume the many mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of these disorders and addresses the newest treatments available for them.

Does it matter what your Cholesterol is when you are in your 20's?

BP and cholesterol are major contributors to cardiovascular disease. Most people only start becoming aware of how high their BP and cholesterol is in middle age. Often by then there has already been significant damage to the cardiovascular system. Would it be sensible for health conscious young people to ask their GP for a cholesterol blood test roughly once a year? Therefore, enabling them to alter their diet and control their weight at a younger age and potentially reduce later heart disease.

Low-fat diet and gallstones

Diet high in fat may reduce the risk of gallstones during rapid weight loss: http://www.nutrientsreview.com/lipids/fats.html Diet high in saturated fat may increase the risk of gallstones. Meals high in fat supposedly trigger pain in gallbladder stones disease, and many doctors recommend low-fat meals to prevent the pain http://www.patient.co.uk/health/gallstones-diet-sheet My questions: Do high-fat meals really trigger pain in gallbladder stone disease? Any experience with patients? Would you, as a doctor, recommend a low-fat diet to someone who already has gallstones?
