The death of actor James Gandolfini has spurred debate about coronary artery disease. Doctor Todd Alderfer, a cardiologist at Alderfer and Travis Cardiology in Sellersville, says people may feel good, but in many cases, the internal workings of the body offer a different view of what could be really happening.
“They don’t know what their blood pressure is, they don’t know what their cholesterol is. We can look at James Gandolfini and recognize he was overweight and probably had obstructive sleep apnea and he certainly at risk for hypertension.”
Dr Alderfer urges people to treat their bodies like their cars, and get a check-up. Dr. Alderfer was a guest on the AM-Edition Friday morning.
