Keep your heart healthy

The secret to a long and happy life is to keep your heart healthy. According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death among men, women, and most racial groups within the United States. Currently, a person dies every thirty-four seconds from heart disease in the U.S.
Don’t be a statistic. If you suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or have a family history of heart disease, you should visit our offices today.

Medico M.D. provides a comprehensive wellness exam that examines your overall cardiovascular health. We even provide the following tests that can determine your overall heart health:

  • Echocardiograms
  • EKG/ECG
  • Cardiac stress tests
  • Blood pressure monitoring

Easy steps you can take to improve your heart health

Even if you don’t have a history of heart disease in your family, it is important to take steps to improve your overall health. One of the main factors is to quit smoking. Smoking tobacco products exacerbates a variety of medical conditions including heart diseases.
Undertake a fitness program. The specialists of Medico M.D. can recommend weight loss solutions and set you up with a workout routine that fits your lifestyle.

Diet may also be an important factor – fast food and junk food can cause plaque buildup in your arteries that can form blockages and make you at risk for a heart attack.
If possible, know your family history. Heart problems such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure often have a genetic link. If your parents had heart problems, you might be at risk for it too.

Lastly, don’t neglect your annual wellness exam. Keeping abreast of your health is the best way to catch health issues before they manifest into major problems.
Your doctors at Medico M.D. can help you with all of these services. Don’t wait until it is too late. Call our offices today and schedule an appointment at 1-844-9MEDICO.
