    Heart disease stands as one of the foremost global killers, claiming the top spot as the leading cause of death among women. With numerous factors contributing to its development, the future lies in precision cardiology—individually, customized, and prevention-focused. Today's episode is a deep dive into endothelial health and the journey to becoming heart attack-proof.


    Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Michael Twyman and Dr. Neel Patel to discuss endothelial and cardiovascular health. Dr. Twyman shares his approach to assessing an individual’s risk of heart disease, metabolic health, and the importance of nitric oxide.

They also discuss the diet and lifestyle for optimal heart health, supplements that should be incorporated into your daily routine, and the role of statins. 


    Dr. Michael Twyman is a board-certified cardiologist focusing on the prevention and early detection of heart disease. Dr. Twyman completed his cardiovascular training at St. Louis University after he completed a four-year active-duty tour as an internist at Naval Hospital Beaufort.
