• Cardiovascular Disease: Beyond Cholesterol

Speaker: Jason Miller, DACM. In addition to lipid imbalances, some of the key factors underlying CVD include inflammation, oxidative damage, hypercoagulation, low androgen levels, and arterial calcification. This lecture investigates each of these factors in detail. How inflammatory signaling directs immune function, and is tied to both coagulation and oxidative damage; how chronic stress is tied to an inflammatory cascade that leads to endothelial damage, immune dysregulation, and arteriosclerosis. How low levels of circulating androgens, especially testosterone and DHEAs, are associated with CVD mortality. And how calcium dysregulation stems from the over-consumption of calcium, poor digestion, and imbalances in vitamin D, vitamin K and parathyroid hormone levels.
