Many people know the importance of taking care of their heart. They eat a heart-healthy diet, get plenty of exercise and even quit smoking if applicable. Regularly seeing a cardiologist is another thing that can help you avoid serious heart-related issues. If your family has a medical history of heart disease, you may be able to avoid the problem by consulting our cardiologist on a regular basis to help avoid developing any serious heart issues.

Our cardiologists can give recommendations on your current health and create a plan for you to stay fit. Conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes may raise the risk of heart disease, but if these things are detected early, they can be treated before they seriously affect your overall health.

A cardiologist is a doctor who has training in preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases of the heart and blood vessels. If a general medical professional feels that one of his or her patients may have a significant heart problem, they will ask a cardiologist for help. Some of the symptoms of heart-related disease are:

• Chest pains
• Dizziness
• Shortness of breath

During a consultation with our cardiologist at NanoHealth Associates, your medical history will be reviewed, and you will have a full physical examination. Your blood pressure, weight, heart, blood vessels and lungs will be checked. This information will be studied along with your symptoms.

In addition, tests that are more specialized may be required. Once your general health is determined, the doctor may recommend lifestyle changes or prescribe medicine.

You may have heard the expression “Know Your Numbers.” Our cardiologist will show you your numbers and how to keep track of them. The main numbers that affect your heart health are blood pressure, body mass index, cholesterol, blood sugar and waist circumference.

We will check these numbers annually, but you can also understand your healthy range and how to maintain good numbers. This will greatly reduce your risk of heart disease.

You may also have many questions for our cardiologist. Here are some questions you can ask to get a good idea of your heart health:

• Are my palpitations normal or serious?
• What are the risks if I don’t eat well?
• Will you help me plan a heart-healthy lifestyle?

Some of the things you need to tell our cardiologist are:

• Any current medications you are taking
• The name of your regular doctor
• Your history of surgery, major tests or illnesses in the past year
• Family health history as far as possible
• Copies of any tests you had done in the past year

Our cardiologist can help you develop an exercise program that suits your lifestyle and will improve your heart health. With regular visits, we can determine if the program is working and monitor improvement in your overall health.

There are many benefits of regularly seeing a cardiologist, but the most important is that any problem that may arise will be seen early. This will help you maintain an active life as you age.
