March 7th, 2015. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates is publishing a new article explaining what cardiologists look for during those regular heart screenings they recommend for patients. According to these top cardiologists in Palm Beach, what they’re looking for in the screenings may not be what patients think.
According to these Palm Beach heart doctors, the tests they perform in these screenings do detect existing heart disease, but more often what they are looking for are risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing heart disease in the near or distant future. “Regular heart screenings are aimed at prevention of heart disease more than they are diagnosis of existing heart disease. If we can bring to your awareness certain known risk factors – hypertension, high cholesterol levels, being overweight, not exercising enough, eating too much fat and sugar, smoking cigarettes – and then help you to reduce the behaviors that increase your risk, we can help you to avoid heart disease.”
These Delray Beach cardiologists feel that if the general public were more aware of the factors that put them at risk for heart disease, they would be more proactive about reducing these risks. To find out more, visit the center’s website at: http://www.southpalmcardiovascular.com.
