Delray Beach Cardiologist: South Palm Cardiovascular Associates Publishes New Article

October 23rd, 2014. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates is announcing a new guide to the most common risk factors for heart disease. The cardiology specialists in Boynton Beach explain that heart disease is one of the leading causes of death for American adults and encourage patients to have a thorough understanding of whether they are at risk for this serious health issue.

According to Dr. Michael Metzger, a Boynton Beach cardiologist, many heart disease risk factors are lifestyle related. “We encourage patients to quit smoking, exercise regularly, and consume a diet low in saturated and trans fats to help lower their risk of heart disease. Even small changes can have a huge impact in a person’s level of heart disease risk.”

Dr. Metzger also notes that family history, gender, and age can also impact a person’s risk of heart disease. Everyone with heart disease risk factors is encouraged to seek out the assistance of a Delray Beach cardiologist to help diagnose and treat heart issues before they grow out of control.

More information on the risk factors for heart disease and the treatments the best heart doctors in Delray Beach use to address it is available on the South Palm Cardiovascular Associates website:
