This trial is evaluating whether ICR x TRE (Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation x Time-Restricted Eating) will improve 1 primary outcome, 3 secondary outcomes, and 1 other outcome in patients with Coronary Artery Disease. Measurement will happen over the course of Baseline and Week 9.
This trial requires 40 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. ICR X TRE (Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation X Time-Restricted Eating) is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. Some patients will receive a placebo treatment. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Atherosclerosis seems to be a major risk factor for coronary disease, the likelihood being higher in individuals who have a family history of ischemic heart disease and cigarette smoking." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Coronary disease is a collection of coronary artery diseases, with an increased risk of heart attacks and sudden cardiac arrest. Approximately one in three Canadians have symptoms of coronary disease in their lifetime!" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There are significant racial and geographic disparities in the incidence of CAD. In our study, Blacks were at a lower risk than Caucasians for CAD in the first year after diagnosis with a CAD atheroma, whereas by 10 years, Whites were at a higher risk for the same type of disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Several types of medications may be used to treat coronary disease, depending on the type of underlying disease. Cardiac rehabilitation is a commonly used treatment.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Signs of coronary disease may vary greatly. In many patients, signs manifest earlier, and include angina, palpitations and weakness on exercise. A wide range of signs may occur in others, such as angina, dyspnea and exercise intolerance." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Coronary disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled and ameliorated by good treatment. Patients with uncomplicated angina may have a high survival benefit." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"ICR X TE is recommended as a second treatment modality following CABG when indicated by evidence of significant improvement with ICR X TE, particularly where the extent of surgical deficit is thought to be significant." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"[With] age, gender, socioeconomic standing, physical activity, and health-related factors associated with disease severity, the likelihood of needing the same coronary intervention or the same bypass surgery [twice or more] was approximately one-third. This high rate should alert clinicians to the relevance of cardiovascular risk factors and disease severity in patients with coronary disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"A substantial quantity of research has recently been published. There has also been an increase in the number of small, isolated, case-series trials being conducted around the world. This research suggests that we have made some progress towards optimizing our treatment algorithms. More work is needed into the management and optimization of beta-blocker use and the avoidance of aspirin in people with coronary disease. Large multi-center studies are required to assess whether a specific treatment protocol or regime is best for coronary disease patients worldwide. Moreover, these trials are necessary to assess the value of new new pharmacological agents for treating coronary disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Even though coronary patients had a similar mean age to age of onset of first manifestations compared with the general population, the number of cases of coronary disease was significantly higher than the number of cases of first manifestations of disease. This suggests that genetic and environmental risk factors act at the same age of onset in the family. Also, the number of cases of first manifestations in each family (with premature CAD) was significantly higher. Thus, it could be concluded that the clinical presentation of CAD in the family members could be attributed to a genetic influence, and that CAD is not only a hereditary disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"IC RXT improved physical fitness, reduced body fat mass indexes, and increased aerobic fitness, and may also have improved autonomic modulation and endothelial function of resistance vessels. However, these benefits were not associated with improvements in lipid profile, blood pressure, or endothelial function of the conduit vessels." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"ICR x TRE was not found to be an effective recovery strategy for patients with coronary disease. The ICR x TRE program did not have a greater effect on QoL than ICR." - Anonymous Online Contributor
