Preventative Cardiology Q & A

What is preventive cardiology?

Preventive cardiology includes preventive medical treatment and lifestyle changes that lower your risk of developing heart disease, blood vessel disorders, heart attacks, and strokes. Seeing the vascular experts at Advanced Cardiovascular Consultants can keep your heart healthy and increase your life expectancy.

What are the risk factors for vascular problems?

Some of the numerous heart disease risk factors include:

  • Poor dietary habits
  • Physical inactivity
  • Family history of heart disease
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol
  • Chronic stress
  • Uncontrolled chronic diseases

Having high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or uncontrolled diabetes greatly increases your chance of developing heart and vascular problems.

Which preventive cardiology solution is right for me?

To determine which preventive cardiology strategy is right for you, your cardiologist checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. They review symptoms you may have, along with your medical history, and complete a comprehensive physical examination. 

Your provider may recommend electrocardiograms (EKGs), stress tests, other heart function tests, blood tests, CT scans, or MRIs to detect or rule out vascular problems and develop a customized treatment plan.

What are my preventive cardiology treatment options?

Your vascular specialist may recommend preventive cardiology treatments, such as:

Lifestyle changes

Adopting healthy lifestyle habits is one of the best ways to lower your risk of heart disease. Your cardiologist offers advice on healthy eating, exercise, weight loss, smoking or alcohol cessation, and stress reduction as an effective preventive cardiology strategy. 

Routine health screenings

Seeing your cardiologist for routine health screenings, such as blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar screenings, is an excellent way to detect heart problems or their risk factors before serious complications occur. 

Medications

Taking medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol can help you effectively control these and other heart disease risk factors. Your cardiologist personalizes each treatment based on your unique needs.
