Cardiovascular Risk Factors
Cardiovascular health refers to the well-being of the heart and blood vessels. There are several signs and risk factors that may indicate your cardiovascular health is at risk.
High Blood Pressure
Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease. Regular blood pressure checks are essential.
Elevated levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, often referred to as “bad” cholesterol, can contribute to the development of atherosclerosis.
Tobacco use is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Smoking damages blood vessels, reduces oxygen in the blood, and contributes to the formation of blood clots.
Lack of regular exercise is associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Physical activity is essential for maintaining cardiovascular health.
Obesity or Overweight
Excess body weight, especially around the abdomen, is linked to conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, all of which contribute to cardiovascular disease risk.
Individuals with diabetes are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Managing blood sugar levels is crucial for cardiovascular health.
A family history of cardiovascular disease, especially if it occurred at a young age, may indicate a genetic predisposition to heart problems.
The risk of cardiovascular disease increases with age. Men aged 45 and older and women aged 55 and older are generally at higher risk.
Diets high in saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, sodium, and added sugars can contribute to cardiovascular disease risk.
Chronic stress may contribute to heart disease. Stress management is important for overall health.
Untreated sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Warning signs such as chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, and palpitations should not be ignored. Seek medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms.
How we are different. Better.
Advanced diagnostic testing goes beyond surface symptoms, giving an in-depth understanding of your heart’s condition. By pinpointing your unique risk factors and health profile, we can create tailored treatment plans, ensuring your cardiovascular care is crafted for your specific needs. Regular monitoring through these diagnostics makes you an active participant in your heart health, allowing us to track progress together and make informed decisions.
Our tests are not just about detecting issues; they’re about empowerment. They arm you with knowledge, fostering a sense of control over your cardiovascular well-being. This personal connection to advanced diagnostics is a roadmap, guiding you towards a heart-healthy lifestyle and a future with fewer uncertainties.
