Most of the slides in the WebPages can be purchased through PayPal. Sets of slides on several titles related to Indian heart disease, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, lipoprotein(a) and Indian diet can also be purchased. The following titles are nearing completion and will be available by the end of the year. Dr. Enas will be also available to do educational programs.

  1. Heart disease among Indians ─a global perspective. This is a succinct summary of heart disease among Asian Indians.
  2. Heart disease among Indian Diasporas. This is a succinct summary of heart disease among Asian Indian Diasporas such as USA, UK, Canada, Singapore, South Africa, Trinidad, and other countries.
  3. Heart disease in the Indian subcontinent. This is succinct summary of the tsunami of heart disease in the Indian subcontinent ─India Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other countries.
  4. Malignant heart disease among young Indians. Discuss the extreme prematurity and severity of heart disease among Indians despite the dearth of major modifiable risk factors.
  5. Epidemiology of heart disease among Asian Indians. This reviews the high rates of heart disease among Asian Indians around the globe.
  6. Diabetes among Asian Indians. This reviews why Asian Indians around the globe have 3-fold risk of diabetes, when statistical adjustments are made for the differences in weight and age. About 15-20% of adults in urban India are diabetic, although about half of them remains undiagnosed.
  7. Metabolic syndrome among Asian Indians. This explores why Asian Indians around the globe have high rates of metabolic syndrome but not appreciated by the medical community because of lack of awareness of specific criteria for this population. Metabolic syndrome is a predictor and precursor to both heart disease and diabetes and can be treated with lifestyle changes.
  8. Obesity and abdominal obesity among Asian Indians. This explains the higher rates of obesity and abdominal obesity among Asian Indians compared to Americans, Europeans and other Asians. This is generally not appreciated because of the lack of awareness of the ethnic and gender specific criteria for obesity by the medical community and the general public.
  9. Lipoprotein(a)─a genetic risk factor for premature heart disease with focus on Asian Indians. This deadliest of all cholesterols is found in 35-40% of Asian Indians, provides a genetic predisposition to heart disease, but can be detected with simple tests and can be treated beginning in childhood.
  10. Dyslipidemia among Asian Indians. This explains why cholesterol and LDL levels fail to explain the danger posed by lipid abnormalities in this population and why treatment goals are lower in Asian Indians.
  11. Intensive statin therapy for Indians. Discusses the safety and benefits of high dose statins to achieve the lower treatment targets in Asian Indians.
  12. Risk stratification and underestimation of heart attack risk among Asian Indians. The risk of heart disease among Asian Indians is double that of Europids for any given combination of major modifiable risk factors. Explains the modifications to risk prediction models for South Asians by European, Australian, British, and American expert bodies.
  13. Recommendations of the Indo-US Health Summits for the prevention and control of heart disease among Asian Indians. Provides detailed recommendations for the medical community, general public, media and other groups to arrest and reverse the twin epidemics of heart disease and diabetes among Asian Indians. Discusses specific lower thresholds for treatment of all modifiable risk factors.
  14. How to beat the heart disease epidemic among Asian Indians. Focus on practical steps to avoid first and repeat heart attack, coronary angioplasty/stent, and bypass surgery. Gives an overview of the topics discussed in the book with the same title.
  15. Women and heart disease. Explains why the excess of heart disease is greater among Asian Indian women than men despite very low rates of smoking.
  16. Pediatric foundations of heart disease. Discuss the role of primordial prevention─ the development of risk factors in the first place.
  17. Family history of heart disease. Discusses strategies to prevent family history of early heart disease from becoming your personal history. People with family history of early heart disease have double the risk of heart disease especially when that history involves a younger sibling.


  1. Understanding heart disease and how to avoid it. Discusses childhood origins of heart disease and detecting silent heart disease years before a cardiac catastrophe.
  2. Understanding the diet to make healthy choices. This discuses the role of diet in producing, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease and strategies for following a prudent diet.
  3. Understanding the Indian diet. This discuses why the benefits of vegetarian diet is not shared by Asian Indians and the dangers of contaminated vegetarianism, glycemic load, saturated fat, trans fat, fried food etc.
