Heart disease includes a wide array of conditions related to your heart, such as heart failure, heart attack, stroke, blood vessel diseases, heart defects, and heart rhythm problems. The experts at Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants can reduce your risk of serious heart problems or take steps to reverse the disease if you're at risk of heart disease or already have it.
If you have heart disease, you may notice some of the following symptoms:
See your cardiologist at the first sign of these or other vascular issues, as heart disease is a serious health problem when left untreated.
Heart disease can happen to anybody, especially with older age. Other risk factors include obesity, family history of heart disease, physical inactivity, smoking, poor dietary habits, being a man, and certain cancer treatments. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and chronic stress also put you at risk.
To find out if you have heart disease, your cardiologist reviews your medical history and symptoms. They complete a physical exam and may recommend electrocardiograms (EKGs), stress tests, Holter monitoring, cardiac catheterization, echocardiograms, CT scans, or MRIs.
Your cardiologist may recommend heart disease reversal treatments, such as:
Lifestyle changes that may help reverse heart disease include not smoking, properly managing stress, eating healthy foods, getting regular exercise, limiting alcohol and sodium, maintaining a healthy weight, and properly controlling heart disease risk factors.
Taking certain medicines can help you better control heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Minor surgical procedures can reduce your risk of or reverse heart disease and its symptoms. Your cardiologist lets you know if you’re a good candidate for a surgical procedure to repair or unblock blood vessels or improve the way your heart functions.
Don’t let heart disease lead to serious complications and reduce your life expectancy. Schedule an appointment with specialists at Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants over the phone or online today.
