Some feedback to improve things
I love your articles and find them really informative and up to date. Maybe some practical tips when it comes to certain aspects eg lipid lowering etc.
Your articles are very informative, helpful, and give me loads to think about. I and many others appreciate the time and effort it takes for you to write them, and make them accessible to all. I have found information and tips, advice etc on issues such as high cholesterol, very helpful and thought provoking. Even with medical issues that I thought I had researched a lot myself personally, and been advised on by many medical professionals. I like the way you write giving the facts, in clear succinct language, even about complex medical issues, and the tips/options you lay out for the reader to take away and assess, make their own decisions as to what option to proceed with. Please keep continuing them. Thank you so much.
As a patient, I really enjoy your writing Dr. Barrett. I would really like to know more about managing the side effects of PCI and medications in the long term.
I love your articles Dr Paddy Barrett. I’m happy with the current format but audio would be good too as I could listen as I cook 😀. I have a deep personal interest in ‘meaning and purpose’ but I also enjoy a wide array of material most especially related to health and wellbeing as I age. I found your article on cholesterol very informative and interesting as I am borderline high when it comes to cholesterol but very nervous of statins. Thank you for taking the time to write these articles, I very much appreciate it. I
Thanks for your efforts Dr Paddy. Most I fully understand, some a little challenging. Every day a learning day.
Excellent articles, keep it up. I was sceptical about statins (influenced by a well argued presentation I heard) but you have certainly swung that pendulum back.
Maybe an article on cholesterol and diet- seems to be plenty confusion on that still.
Very much enjoy the articles . Common sense approach to cardiac health . Keep them coming . The last one on cholesterol got me thinking . Previously I was only treating aggressively those with known heart disease as I had seen article on numbers needed to treat in either known or unknown cardiovascular history. There didn’t seem to be much point in treating those with elevated cholesterol who did not have a history of cardiovascular disease. Maybe I need to question that now
Great content - way ahead of most of what's out there. Keep writing and publishing.
Delighted with the overall information as a male with high blood pressure with 15 years finding it hard to control due to lots of reactions to certain medications but have stayed exercising always which has kept me healthy looking forward to more of your email regards michael duggan
Keep up the great work Paddy. Articles are always succinct, easy to read and never too long.
Maybe some tips on what to request when getting blood tests done or simply when visiting the GP.
I really like your articles and the way you explain and advise on health issues. Is there any chance you could add an audio version as I find listening can reinforce what I've read. Please keep doing them. Many thanks.
Hi Dr Paddy. Would love to see your views on the Ross Procedure. Had it done by Lars Nolke last year in BR Clinic - my 2nd OHS. Really can’t understand why it is generally not discussed as an option when confronted with a valve replacement surgery? My own cardiologist didnt even know what it was when I wanted to discuss it with him and I was originally referred to a surgeon who did not offer it as an option. I am 48 years old - did not want a mechanical valve and all it brings with it by way of warfarin management, increased risk of bleeds etc…..nor did I want a tissue valve which would likely last only 10/12 year at my age. Found out about the Ross online and reached out to a surgeon in Mt Sinai Hospital who was most helpful and from there found Lars who was very open to discuss it as an option and in the end whilst not Plan A on the day of the surgery it is what I got and I could not be happier. Finger crossed now that in the long run its the correct call but I believe it to be.
Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with us all and yes a Podcast would be great.
I enjoy receiving the articles. Information good. I would also like practical tips re blood pressure management and what investigations required and when to see a cardiologist when family history of heart disease
I really enjoy the articles and find them so informative and inspiring! Thank you for doing this.
Thanks for sharing your professional knowledge and experience. I particularly appreciate your clarity in challenging widely held myths about lifestyle choices and risk vs. Actual events.
I avidly read your articles, paddy.
Your advice is clear, sensible and modern. I was going to say they are a little long…. but no, every line is important and informative .
Please continue present format.
