Doctors and Hospitals need to be aware of blood pressure because it can warn all of an impending stroke.
The amino acid Homocysteine, which is the cause of 80% of all Ischemic strokes. Learn the prevention, the signs and the dangers of bad blood chemistry.
Protein is throughout the body, and amino acids are the building blocks of the proteins. Homocysteine is an amino acid. This compound is made when another amino acid methionine is metabolized or “broken down.” They serve as the basis for all chemical reactions in the body; the smaller molecules get broken down into even smaller molecules.
The major problem with this amino acid, Homocysteine, is that too much of it can cause ischemic attacks or otherwise called strokes. High levels of Homocysteine, is toxic to the endothelium which is the thin layer of cells that lines the interior surface of blood and lymph vessels. When this large amount of Homocysteine is circulating throughout the blood stream it’s a almost a blunt object which damages blood vessels elasticity and ability to function. This problem then generates another problem: High blood pressure which is an oncoming sign of either an Ischemic stroke or a cataclysmic Hemorrhagic stroke. This high blood pressure is from the Homocysteine and is adding other proteins which do not break down properly; calcium, cholesterol and collagen. These molecules then adhere like glue to sites in the blood vessels and create intimal injury, by forming plaque for atherosclerosis. The Homocysteine application is influenced by aggregate data(age, gender, race) but also by certain medication, hereditary history and diet.
To reduce Homocysteine in blood one has to take responsibility for their body; eat a low fat and cholesterol diet, exercise and maybe take supplements like folic acid, flaxseed oil and a multi-vitamin. Folic acid is the key to reducing Homocysteine, along with vitamin’s B6 and B12. Eating right will reduce this amino acid and prevent a stroke some great folic acid foods to eat are citrus fruits, tomatoes, green leafy vegetables, asparagus, broccoli, eggs and whole grains. A great food to eat for both B6 and B12 is fish; if taste is a factor there are “fish oil” supplements available at most major Health food stores.
Cindy J Warren, MSN, wrote in her journal article “Emergent Cardiovascular Risk Factor: Homocysteine” featured on MEDSCAPE: “Since cardiovascular nurses are the primary educators for patients, it is increasingly important that nurse’s knowledge of health information is current, especially when internet access provides easily obtainable medical information to the public.(Warren 1-2)”
In this heavily exciting scientific world, mistakes and medical malfeasance can unfortunately happen. If a nurse or a doctor is not current with the science of blood chemistry then misdiagnosis can and will happen. This is where legal professionals Cory Rosenbaum and Robert Fader have been helping people who have been mistreated and misdiagnosed by poor interpretations of blood chemistry. A team of lawyers is need to recover lost wages, time and proper compensation of misinformed incompetence.
