Insulin Resistance, Hyperleptinemia, and Impaired Nitric Oxide Release With In-Stent Restenosis
Many patients have been saved open heart surgery by placing a stent in a blocked artery via a vein in the leg. Unfortunately, these stents have a high likelihood of closing back up in a relatively short period. The medical profession’s approach to this has been to use radioactivity and drug eluding stents (DES) in an attempt to halt or slow restenosis. However, many natural approaches have shown good results. These include B12, folic acid and B6 supplements.
This article brings to light some other physiological conditions amenable to lifestyle changes that impact stent restensosis.
