*Note: Upon review, Dr. Adesina realized that he mistakenly stated, 'The higher the LDL, the lower the risk of heart blockages.' He acknowledged that it should be the opposite: 'The lower the LDL, the lower the risk of heart blockages.' This is just to make everyone aware of the correction and ensure accurate information is communicated :).*

In this Q&A-episode on the podcast of The Heart Warrior Project, I invited board-certified cardiologist Dr. George Adesina to the answer questions you sent in. 

Dr. Adesina currently practices as a cardiologist at the Kelsey-Seybold Clinic in Houston, Texas, and has been doing so since 2018. He completed his residency in 2014 and finished a cardiovascular diseases fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. 

Afterwards he served as an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Texas, before joining Kelsey-Seybold. 

His expertise lies in diagnosing and treating heart diseases, including congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart rhythm disorders, and heart failure. 

In this episode I got a chance to ask Dr. Adesina some of the questions you sent in, which led us to discuss a broad range of cardiac health-related topics such as cardiac disease and mental health, the effects of the COVID pandemic on cardiac health and Dr. Adesina’s insights on sudden cardiac arrests. 

I hope you enjoy this incredibly instructive episode with Dr. Adesina.

Note that The Heart Warrior Project is run by one guy, which is, yes, me.

Like most people, I have bills to pay.

If you have found or come to find anything helpful or insightful here on the website, please consider supporting The Heart Warrior Project.

If you are a survivor, I would recommend buying either a Heart Warrior t-shirt, a Heart Warrior hoodie, or a Heart Warrior mug.

I, together with an illustrator, created the design for them (and we’re working on more cool designs to come). 

Both the t-shirt, hoodie, and mug are made from durable and quality materials, and don’t they look just great?! Of course, these are just suggestions, but I do not think you will regret having them.

I personally love wearing the t-shirt and hoodie myself. And I drink my coffee every day out of my Heart Warrior mug

If the t-shirt, hoodie, or mug doesn’t speak to you, there are a few other ways to support The Heart Warrior Project:

  • DONATIONS: The project accepts donations. Anything, even as little as 1 dollar, can help me keep this project alive.
  • AFFILIATE LINKS: If there are any links to a product mentioned in an article or podcast episode and you are interested in buying it, consider doing so through the provided link. Likely, it will be an affiliate link. What is an affiliate link, you ask? Basically, it is a link where I could earn a small commission if someone buys the product through that link. Buying through this link will not cost you anything extra.
  • SPREAD THE WORD: If you like what I am doing here, you could always simply spread the word about this project to anyone you think might benefit. It would help a lot.


Choosing any of these ways to support this project will truly help me a lot in putting out more content and building The Heart Warrior Project further.

Many thanks, 

Jellis

    Hey! Jellis here, founder of The Heart Warrior Project. 

    If I may ask for one moment of your time: I am one guy who runs this project along with my full-time job and my studies. I absolutely love working on this project, and I have no intention of stopping. However, if you are a fellow cardiac arrest survivor and you feel you have been helped in some way by this project, please consider supporting The Heart Warrior Project by buying either the awesome and inspiring Heart Warrior t-shirt or mug. A donation is, of course, always possible too. 🙂

    You’ll not only look great, but you’ll also be helping this project to continue to survive and with that, help other fellow survivors find support.

    With thanks, 

    Jellis
