High Blood Pressure & Other Heart Disease Risk Factors

There are many risk factors that can impact the health of your heart and lead to other, potentially life-threatening complications.

The heart is responsible for delivering blood, with its oxygen, nutrients and immune defense, to every other organ and cell throughout your body. Any impediments to its ability to preform that function can result in gradual or immediate health concerns. If left undiagnosed or untreated, these risk factors contribute to the leading cause of death in the U.S.

Cardiovascular Health Risk Factors

These warning signs can be detected through testing, and treated at Greenwich Cardiology:

  • High blood pressure
  • Abnormal cholestorol
  • Diabetes

We also work with our patients to overcome these additional risk factors:

  • Smoking
  • Obesity

Recommended Screenings & Treatment

The risk factors and behaviors can be measured and overcome using:

  • Blood pressure measurement and ambulatory blood pressure monitor
  • Finger-stick blood tests for diabetes, and abnormal cholesterol
  • Counseling on behavioral and pharmaceutical therapies to quit smoking
  • Nutritional counseling for obesity sufferers

Don‘t Wait Until it’s Too Late

Many risk factors do not present with symptoms until the condition is serious and harder to treat. Early detection and treatment is vital to preventing more serious and life-threatening complications.
