Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 12, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am a man of 70 and have had angina for eight years I have been taking four Isordil tablets daily, one before meals, and one upon retiring I aiso have been carrying a small vial of Nitrostat and oc- casionally have had to put one under my tongue if I exert myself or walk too fast About six months ago, I put myself on a very strict, fat- free diet I haven't felt this good in the last 10 years I cut my Isordil down to two tablets daily I carry Nitrostat till it crumbles in my pocket Now I can walk as far as I care to and can play 18 holes of golf without any distress I told my doctor just how well I felt, and he told me not to try to be my own doctor He further suggested that I take the medicine as he had prescribed, that this cholesterol bit was mostly a lot of nonsense and that the fat free diet was debatable since nothing had been proved on this deal Should I continue as I am doing, or see another doctor9 Dear Reader You've done yourself a favor I have seen many people who have gone on a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet who have lost weight and had marked improvement in their heart condition Most people on such diets do lose weight and that is a big help It means you have to do less work in moving that body around the golf course Even patients bedridden with recurrent heart pain, often get marked relief on a low- calorie low-fat diet Anyone who has taken care of lots of heart patients and tried this knows how beneficial this can be in some cases I approve of your effort The American Heart Assn recommends a low-fat, low- cholesterol diet for patients with your type of heart trouble The Food and Nutri- tion Board of the National Academy of Sciences National Research Council, and the Council on Foods and Nutrition of the American Medical Assn also made such a recommendation in a joint statement in July, 1972 Similar diet recommen- dations were made by the Inter-Society Commission on Heart Disease So, you can judge for yourself One other thing Your Nitrostat tablets they are nitroglycenn The ones that have crumbled in your pocket are worthless Nitroglycenn is a volatile substance and those tablets should be kept sealed in an amber bottle in the refrigerator You can open the bottle once a week and take out a week's supply The tablets you carry on your person won't be good for more than a week A lot of heart patients are walking around with worthless nitroglycerine tablets in their pockets This may not be all bad, because if you have not had angina for a long time and then start hav- ing it, you should see a doctor first before taking nitroglycenn If you have any problems about the nitroglycenn story, tell your doctor there is a good write-up on the problem in the Canadian Medical Jour- nal (Vol 110 page 788, 1974) There is a lot of confusion about nitroglycenn tablets and this may help clarify the problem Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS Dec 12, 1974 1688 Judge Jeffreys took refuge from mob in Tower of London 1889 Robert Browning, poet, died 1894 Japanese forces in- vaded Korea 1953 The art gallery of Hamilton Ont, was opened by Gov Gen Vincent Massey 1963 Kenya became independent Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF 1974 ThoChlugo Tribune South (leak NORTH Q5 V A10932 84 4 10632 WEST EAST 41098 A.11096 32 K SOUTH AK7432 9 b Q5 AQ84 1 he bidding South W est North Last 1 2 Pass Pass 2 Pass 3 Pass 4 Pass Pass Pass Opening lead BourotV In cooperation with tht International Bridge Press Association thi Dutch tirm of Holt.
