Heart health is the top killer of women globally – and it’s avoidable!! World renown cardiologist Dr. Haider Warraich is on with Jillian to discuss what tests our doctors should be running for proactive heart health and what age to start. Plus, he teaches us how we can manage our blood pressure; what cholesterol numbers mean for your LDL, HDL, total cholesterol, and triglycerides; what to do about hypertension; top strategies to remove plaque from the blood vessels; the risks and benefits of statins and other medications (like PCSK 9 inhibitors); supplements, aspirin, and vaccinations to lower cholesterol. Dr. Warraich also tackles questions on how to manage other factors for heart disease like genetics, environment, and lifestyle changes to help us transform our heart health.
