Ischemic heart disease (IHD) named in the World Health Organization (WHO) expert report (above) is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the Western industrialised world - including Australia. Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is correlated to a range of diseases including atherosclerosis ("hardening of arteries'), heart attack, cerebrovascular disease (brain stroke) and diabetes. Indeed, more than 90 per cent of patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) have coronary atherosclerosis. A large percentage have diabetes. These are major, serious diseases in Australia. They inflict much pain and anguish and consume a large percentage of Australian health budget. For further information on these diseases and the 'Metabolic Syndrome', visit the International Diabetes Institute website at www.diabetes.com.au or obtain the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study (AusDiab) report.
