Preventing Coronary Artery Disease

The first step in preventing CAD is getting tested to see if you have the disease and if so, how far it has progressed. A common test is an electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG). Your doctor may also order an arteriography in which dye is shot into your bloodstream and x-rays are taken. Once it is determined you do have coronary artery disease, you will have several treatment options as discussed in this video by Dr. Paul Knoepflmacher.
