Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) occurs when the coronary arteries, or the
arteries that bring blood to the heart muscle, become hardened and narrowed.
The arteries harden and narrow because of a buildup of plaque on their
inner walls. This is called atherosclerosis. Significant narrowing of
the coronary arteries can reduce blood flow to the heart. This limits
the amount of oxygen the heart receives and can lead to angina, heart
failure, irregular heart rhythm, and heart attack.

fat-like substance in your blood is just the tip of the iceberg. Scientists
have learned that other substances may help your doctor predict your risk
for heart disease.
