The diagnosis is generally made by medical history, including family history, physical examination, including an evaluation of the ratio of arm/leg size to trunk size, a slit lamp eye examination, and a heart test(s), such as an echocardiogram.

At least one American dies from a stroke, a type of cardiovascular disease, every four (4) minutes on average.1 A stroke is by medical definition the result of the absence or lack of blood supply to the brain due to a blood occlusion in some area, damage of the blood vessels to the brain, or heart failure. The expense of these procedures consumes the lion’s share of the health budget. Often leads to arrhythmia or sudden cardiac death. As noted in the introduction, thresholds to trigger certain interventions are problematic since risk is a continuum and there is no threshold at which, for example, a drug is automatically indicated.

When using a QRISK2 risk score to inform drug treatment decisions in these populations, particularly if it is near the threshold for treatment, take into account other factors that may predispose the person to premature CVD that may not be included in calculated risk scores. Now I realize it probably all goes back to the sarcoidosis. These include Guidelines for the Management of Absolute Cardiovascular Risk (2012) and Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2010, both developed by the National Stoke Foundation.
