September is Cholesterol Education Month

Published

–News Direct–

September is Cholesterol Education Month and for people with unsafe levels of high LDL (bad) cholesterol, there are many options in the treatment toolbox. Recently, Preventive Cardiologist Dr. Seth Baum participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss high LDL cholesterol, best treatment options, and tips for patients navigating challenges with their health coverage.

Preventive Cardiologist Discusses High LDL Cholesterol, Best Treatment Options, and Navigating Health Insurance Challenges

Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States and LDL-cholesterol, what we call the bad cholesterol, is a major risk factor which can lead to a heart attack or a stroke.

While many can lower their LDL cholesterol with a heart healthy diet, some will need medication to reach their Safe Zone. Statins are often the first-line of treatment for individuals with high LDL cholesterol, not all patients reach their recommended LDL cholesterol levels with statins alone.

In these cases, lipid-lowering medications, known as PCSK9 inhibitors, are often recommended to help lower cholesterol levels. Unfortunately, individuals who are prescribed PCSK9 inhibitors are facing significant hurdles in accessing and using these potentially life-saving drugs, despite their proven efficacy in reducing LDL cholesterol.

One major obstacle is insurance company denials or rejections. Data published in the November 2022 Journal of the American Medical Association found that for commercially insured patients prescribed a PCSK9 inhibitor, only 42% of initial rejections were overturned. Sadly, nearly 75% of patients rejected for a PCSK9 inhibitor ended up on no therapy, which is not a win for anyone.

Research from the Family Heart Foundation shows that compared to individuals who were able to obtain their prescribed PCSK9 inhibitor, those whose prescription was rejected or abandoned experienced more heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular events within 12 months.

MMpro Trust and Tonkeeper Launch RWA Store for Pre-IPO Investments

Published

on

London, UK – 18/06/2024 – (SeaPRwire) – Tonkeeper, the #1 self-custody wallet for the TON blockchain, and MMpro Trust, a prominent platform for tokenized assets, have announced a strategic partnership to launch an RWA (Real-World Asset) Store. This initiative aims to provide investors with access to Pre-IPO investments through RWA NFTs, offering significant advantages to both traditional and crypto investors.

First project: The initial project under this partnership involves the hardware wallet firm Ledger. MMpro Trust now offers investors the opportunity to purchase Ledger Pre-IPO assets directly through the Tonkeeper wallet, which is available on all major platforms.

Simplified explanations:

  • RWA NFTs (Real-world asset non-fungible tokens): Digital tokens representing real assets that can be bought and sold.
  • Pre-IPO: An opportunity to invest in companies before they go public and start trading their shares on the stock exchange.
  • TON blockchain: A modern technology that ensures the security and transparency of all transactions.

Accessibility for all: MMpro Trust is transforming the Pre-IPO investment market by making it accessible to a broader audience. Through RWA NFTs representing options on assets of promising companies like Ledger, any investor can participate in Pre-IPO deals regardless of capital size. This solution removes barriers that previously existed in this segment, as many investors struggled to access the often opaque Pre-IPO marketplace.

Benefits of using RWA NFTs: Investors can easily buy and sell these Pre-IPO RWA NFTs through the Tonkeeper app, simplifying portfolio management and allowing for quick responses to market changes. The TON blockchain guarantees the security and transparency of all transactions, and investors receive real-time information about the status of their blockchain-based assets, minimizing risks and increasing trust in the investment process.

“This collaboration marks an important milestone in the evolution of digital investments,” said Oleg Andreev, CEO of Tonkeeper. “By ensuring accessibility, security, and innovation, this partnership with MMpro Trust offers unique opportunities for all types of investors.”

“Our commitment to innovation ensures that Tonkeeper remains the definitive choice for various projects across the industry, including services for digital nomads, games, NFTs — and much more.”

About Tonkeeper: Tonkeeper, a product of Ton Apps Group, is the leading non-custodial wallet for the TON blockchain. It has created innovations such as Tonkeeper Battery for handling token and NFT fees and TON Connect for secure connection to thousands of web3 apps. Tonkeeper also has the largest developer platform on the TON network — TON API, which is used by over 80% of projects in the ecosystem.
