Narrowing of the blood vessels.

Q: I was told by my Dr. that I have narrowing of the blood vessels (restriction) to the heart when I am under stress. The heart pumps hard because of Epinepherine therefore causes my blood pressure to go dangerously high. What tests do I need to get to the bottom of the narrowing of the bloodvessels?

A: Your blood fat levels should be tested. All adults should know at least their cholesterol level. Increased blood fats, also known as lipids, increase the risk for narrowing of the blood vessels, atherosclerosis.

It is often unrecognized until someone has a heart attack or stroke.
