My dear husband died suddenly from a massive heart attack three weeks ago. He had two risk factors, a family history of heart disease and obesity. All his other numbers were always fine. Normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol, etc. He had no warnings before his death. The death certificate lists, stenosing atherosclerosis as the cause of death.
I have three children. We are of course all devastated, but also terribly frightened.
Here is my question: If you knew your children had a very very strong family history of heart disease and obesity, what would you do? What would you feed them? What medical tests would you insist they have as they get older?
I am driving myself crazy trying to read through all the studies and I just can't seem to find any answers.
Thank you for your help.
