75% of Heart Disease Patients Given Wrong Drug Dosage

75% of Heart Disease Patients Given Wrong Drug Dosage | heart-attack2 | Big Pharma General Health Medical & Health Natural Medicine A new study by the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute  found that roughly 75 percent of Americans suffering from coronary artery  disease are being prescribed wrong drug dosages. Doctors  are neglecting a simple test that could ensure dosages appropriate for each  individual’s body. This, in effect, puts their patients at greater risk of  uncontrolled bleeding, blood clot development, and other problems.

Doctors Missing the Sweet Spot

In the study, researchers found that the one-dose-fits-all method was  poorly-suited for most of the 521 heart disease subjects: half were getting too  little and a quarter were getting too much.

“There’s a sweet spot, an appropriate range for each patient. But we found  that not many people are falling into that range,” says cardiologist Brent  Muhlestein of the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute. “We  showed that by performing a simple blood test to see whether or not the blood is  clotting properly, we can determine whether patients are getting an appropriate  individualized dose of the medications. The test is easy to perform, but not  widely used.”

Two blood-thinning drugs—clopidogrel (Plavix) and prasugrel (Effient)—are at  the heart of the study, which was presented at the American Heart  Association Scientific Sessions 2012. Too low of a dose of these drugs  fails to prevent clots (but comes with a lovely string of side effects including  digestive difficulties and seizures). Too high of a dosage can cause mortal  internal bleeding, along with the rest of the side-effects.

The news comes after it was found that Big Pharma has been testing a heavy  duty narcotic painkiller – Oxycontin – on  children as young as 6 years old.

Prevent and Heal Heart Disease Naturally

You can naturally prevent and reverse heart disease and stroke without  relying on Big Pharma’s (deadly) helping hand.  In addition to implementing  these tips on how  to prevent a stroke, start by:

  • Eliminating (or at least cutting down) soda and sugary drinks intake.
  • Avoid use of antidepressants.
  • Adopt a healthy diet high in fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Cook with olive oil or coconut oil to fight heart disease and excess  weight.
  • Spice up your life with turmeric  and other foods shown to prevent heart disease.
