Heart Healthy Living and preventive cardiology
Heart Healthy Living and Preventive Cardiology is a subspecialty that focuses on lowering a patient’s risk of developing heart disease, avoiding a heart attack or stroke, and preventing further issues in those who have already been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease.
The highly trained and experienced physicians at Advanced Heart and Vascular Institute in Boca Raton, Florida, offer a comprehensive range of services designed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and its related complications.
First, we evaluate each patient’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease or experiencing a cardiovascular event, starting with examining any hereditary or other factors that can threaten the patient’s health. If necessary, we conduct imaging tests of the heart and blood vessels and/or advanced blood tests, such as C-reactive and advanced lipoprotein testing.
Next, we develop a personalized medical plan designed to reduce controllable risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, diabetes, obesity, tobacco usage, an unhealthy diet, or a sedentary lifestyle.
We also provide expert counseling for patients who seek more information about their test results, research studies, new treatments, and any other heart-related information.
Our multidisciplinary approach to risk intervention may include:
- Cholesterol management
- Nutritional counseling
- Heart-healthy eating plans
- Weight-loss instructions
- Cardiac rehabilitation in the form of supervised exercise and education
