Dietary Management in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation
The topic of this Diet and Lipid Network meeting was the ‘Dietary Management in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation’. Lynne Garton, HEART UK Dietetic Adviser, and Dr Tom Butler, Senior Lecturer in Nutrition and Health at Edgehill University and Scientific Officer for the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, investigated the nutrition recommendations following a cardiovascular event, the evidence behind these recommendations and how to translate these guidelines into practice. They also answered specific questions that were raised before and during the meeting.
As part of the The Diet and Lipids Networking Group we investigated the prevalence of this condition; explored statin’s side effects and possible alternative treatment options; discussed the guidelines in place for statin intolerance; addressed common objections to their use and talked about strategies to overcome these challenges.
This meeting was chaired by Lynne Garton, Dietetic Adviser at HEART UK, with expert guest, Dr Peter Penson, Head of Subject (Pharmacy) & Reader in Cardiovascular Pharmacology, Liverpool John Moores University
