The ideal cardio-protective diet remains elusive because of the wide variation in the availability of food, cultural practices, and physician knowledge. Although patients are far more informed than they were even 20 or 30 years ago, many patients express frustration and dissatisfaction with their care as they do not feel like they have adequate input into the decisions that clinicians are making about their health and their lives. Conventional risk factors for CVD, such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, smoking, and hypercholesterolemia, have led to the development of well known risk prediction models. The incorporation of newly identified risk factors into risk models is needed for physicians to better understand CV risk and appropriately counsel patients.
