Could A Single Pill Protect You From Heart Disease?


. STUDENT’S HEALTH WATCH COULD TAKING A SINGLE PILL MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN HEART DISEASE THAT’S WHAT RESEARCHERS HAVE BEEN STUDYING IN A YEAR LONG TRIAL. MAX GOMEZ HERE WITH MORE. RESEARCHERS CALL IT A POLY PILL AND THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S A COMBINATION OF FOUR DRUGS. THREE FOR BLOOD PRESSURE AND ONE FOR CLOSE TOLL. DOCTORS HAVE BEEN STUDYING DOCTOR COMBINATIONS FOR SOME TIME. MOSTLY IN LOW AND — MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES. THIS ONE IS THE FIRST TO BE STUDIED IN THE UNITED STATES. RETIRED POLICE OFFICER TAKES A LOT OF PILLS TO MANAGE HIS DIABETES AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. WHEN I WAS — TAKING MEDICATION CONSISTING A VARIETY OF TABLETS, I WOULD HAVE — BY THE FIVE, SIX OR SEVEN TABLETS. IT’S A COMMON COMPLAINT AMONG HEART PATIENTS WITH MULTIPLE RISK FACTORS.

THE ONE WEAKNESS IN THE PRESENT STUDY IS THAT IT WENT OUT FROM MARKERS LIKE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE TO PREDICT HEART DISEASE LOWERING. GOLD STANDARD IS TO LOOK AT OUTCOMES. HEART ATTACKS AND STROKES. THOSE STUDIES TAKE LONGER ARE MONTH COSTLY. THE DOCTOR IS DOING ONE OF THOSE STUDIES AND THEY WILL PROVE THEN THAT THE PILL REALLY IS SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD TAKE. IF YOU REMEMBER TO TAKE FIVE FOR SIX PILLS IT’S EASY TORE TAKE THAT ONE. IT SEEMS THEY WORK. ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY THEY WORK. IF YOU LOWER THAT BLOOD
