I've always suffered from head aches, cramp-like pains, aching, or muscle fatigue in the calves that occur when walking. I also feel light headed at times and get flushed and red faced; could this be related to this disease?</p> pubDate Sat, 01 May 2010 01:56:07 +0200 dc:creator Anonymous guid false comment 1487 at http://www.healthandage.com Small Vessel Disease: What is small vessel disease? /small-vessel-disease#comment-949 <p>Dr. Chen,<br /> My wife is 51, non-smoker, high blood pressure, and was just diagnosed with Cerebral SVD. She is starting medication and life style changes. What is the general long term prognosis of SVD? She has read articles that seem to imply the inevitability of mental and physical degeneration. These are quite discouraging. Her doctor, who has an excellent reputation in our city, did not mention the inevitability of any of this. Are we facing an uphill battle with this desease?</p> <p>Thank you for your help.</p> pubDate Sun, 15 Nov 2009 13:14:04 +0100 dc:creator Anonymous guid false comment 949 at http://www.healthandage.com Small Vessel Disease: What is small vessel disease? /small-vessel-disease#comment-474 <p>I read, not so long ago, that a research from 2009 emphasize the link between small blood vessel disease and diabetic peripheral neuropathy.</p> pubDate Thu, 01 Oct 2009 18:02:16 +0200 dc:creator Anonymous guid false comment 474 at http://www.healthandage.com Small Vessel Disease: What is small vessel disease? /small-vessel-disease#comment-320 <p>A recent (2008) study reports that more than 30% of the risk of dementia stems from disease of small blood vessels in the brain. it's very impressive</p> pubDate Fri, 18 Sep 2009 16:33:28 +0200 dc:creator Anonymous guid false comment 320 at http://www.healthandage.com Small Vessel Disease: What is small vessel disease? /small-vessel-disease#comment-289 <p>The American Diabetes Association offers excellent resources for patients with diabetes, including information about the complications associated with diabetes, such as progression of small vessel disease.

Factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol/hyperlipidemia, female sex, and cigarette smoking have been linked to progression of cerebral small vessel disease. Genetic factors may also contribute to earlier development of small vessel disease in the brain.</p> pubDate Wed, 16 Sep 2009 19:36:41 +0200 dc:creator JUN guid false comment 288 at http://www.healthandage.com Small Vessel Disease: What is small vessel disease? /small-vessel-disease#comment-282 <p>I remember an article in which I read that diabetes can accelerate the process of small vessel disease and the damage to organs and tissues, but I can't find other information about that</p> pubDate Wed, 16 Sep 2009 17:25:38 +0200 dc:creator Anonymous guid false comment 282 at http://www.healthandage.com Small Vessel Disease: What is small vessel disease? /small-vessel-disease#comment-259 <p>I was recently diagnosed with cerebral small vessel disease at 48?

Treatment for small vessel disease also focuses on lifestyle changes targeted at reducing the risk factors for progression of blockages in the coronary arteries, such as stopping smoking, controlling blood pressure, and maintaining a healthy diet.</p> pubDate Thu, 27 Aug 2009 18:58:26 +0200 dc:creator JUN guid false comment 191 at http://www.healthandage.com
