Risk Factors for Heart Disease

Understanding your risk is the first step in prevention. Key factors include high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, genetic predisposition, smoking, and diabetes. By managing these risks through lifestyle changes and medical interventions, you can significantly reduce your chances of developing heart disease.

Managing Cholesterol

Cholesterol management is vital in the fight against heart disease. Our primary care physicians can help you understand your cholesterol levels and devise a plan to achieve and maintain healthy numbers through medication if necessary, and lifestyle modifications.

Controlling Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is often a silent contributor to heart disease, making regular monitoring essential. We provide guidance on how to control blood pressure with diet, exercise, stress management, and when required, medication.

Healthy Eating for a Healthy Heart

Nutrition plays a crucial role in cardiovascular health. We advocate for a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, and low in processed foods, sodium, and bad fats. Our team can help tailor a heart-healthy eating plan that's right for you.

The Role of Exercise and Lifestyle

Regular physical activity is one of the most effective tools in preventing heart disease. Whether it’s walking, swimming, cycling, or any other form of exercise, incorporating it into your daily routine can strengthen your heart and improve overall health. Moreover, lifestyle choices like quitting smoking and reducing alcohol intake contribute to a healthier heart.
