TAMPA - Faye Etta Davis is at her doctor's office looking for a diagnosis of current heart problems. “I have a stent in my heart. I think I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I worry a lot. I just lost my brother. He had a major heart attack." Her doctor says this MET-Test - a new non-invasive stress test - can pinpoint what issues Faye is having better than older tests. Medical experts say the traditional treadmill stress test relies on EKGs and only partially assesses the heart and nothing else.

"When it comes to heart disease, there's no cure - we just have treatment options," said Tim Descamps, executive director of the International Heart Institute of Montana Foundation. "The best way to combat heart disease is to start with prevention, first and foremost." The first step to avoiding the heartache - and expense - of this costly disease is a matter of people becoming familiar with their own medical conditions, and to get regular annual checkups. Heart disease is truly a silent killer, Descamps said, and while it tends to focus on people over the age of 65, it is an opportunist that knows no age limits."The statistics are alarming," Descamps said. "Heart disease is still the No. 1 cause of death in United States. Add that to the fact that we have an aging population in this country, and we have the baby boomers and the disease on a collision course."The American Heart Association predicts that 116 million Americans - 40.5 percent of us - will have heart disease in 20 years."
