Lifestyle Changes Can Improve Inflammatory Burden

Based on their findings, investigators said modifiable risk factors are strongly associated with C-reactive protein levels in patients with coronary artery disease.

Modifiable lifestyle risk factors for coronary artery disease (CAD) are associated with increased inflammation levels, so lifestyle changes may improve the inflammatory burden in patients, according to a recent study.

Investigators included patients with angiographically documented CAD from the observational cohort study INTERCATH. Patients with a body mass index of 25 kg/m2 or higher who ate poorly, did not exercise, and smoked were considered to have modifiable risk factors.
