Local Cardiologist Says New Heart Health Guidelines Don't Change Need For Better Diet, Exercise


A Springfield cardiologist says new guidelines on heart disease and cholesterol are long overdue. 

 

Dr. Roberto Pacheco of Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants says the new approach… which could result in more people being put on cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (STAT’-ins)… is based on the latest research. 

 

Pacheco says an increased reliance on the drugs doesn’t mean people can ignore diet and exercise, but thinks it will help reduce the total number of heart attacks and strokes.  [Pacheco appeared live on the 970 WMAY News Feed.]
