Cardiovascular Health Q & A

What are the signs of cardiovascular health problems?

Your cardiovascular health includes your heart and the blood vessels that carry blood throughout your body. There’s a wide range of cardiovascular health problems that cause a number of symptoms, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Headaches
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Swelling in your feet, legs, hands, and arms

 

However, you may not have any noticeable symptoms in the early stages of heart disease. For example, if you have high blood pressure or cholesterol — both of which are reliable indicators of cardiovascular health problems — you may not have any symptoms until you experience a cardiac event, such as a heart attack.

Preventive screenings are the best way to monitor your heart health so that you can get the treatment you need and make the necessary lifestyle adjustments to restore your health before you suffer negative symptoms.

How is my cardiovascular health tested and monitored?

The team at PURE Executive Health & Wellness offers a comprehensive range of cardiovascular health screening services in their PURE Heart evaluation. The PURE Heart program allows for earlier and more accurate cardiovascular disease detection. It includes advanced heart testing, identifying inflammatory markers, genetic factors, and dangerous arterial plaque.

Some of the PURE Heart tests include:

  • Diabetes and insulin resistance screening
  • Complete cholesterol and cardiac inflammation panel
  • Advanced cardiovascular genetic profile
  • CIMT, a noninvasive carotid artery ultrasound that measures your “arterial age,” artery wall thickness, and presence of any plaques

 

The physicians at PURE Executive Health & Wellness review the results of your evaluation and may order additional testing before creating a customized plan to restore your cardiovascular health. For example, if you show signs of cardiovascular health problems, your doctor may order a stress test to gather more information about your heart health.

PURE Executive Health & Wellness offers in-office stress tests that monitor your heart function while your heart is at rest and while it’s under stress. During the test, your doctor attaches electrodes to your chest that monitor and record your heart activity while you walk on a treadmill.

How are cardiovascular health issues treated?

Your treatment depends on your specific condition. Your doctor may prescribe medication to regulate your heart activity or help you reduce your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. They may also recommend some lifestyle modifications to help improve your cardiovascular health. For example, your doctor can provide smoking cessation support and customized weight loss programs to reduce the stress on your heart and improve your health.
