 Who Needs Preventive Health Screening Tests? 

Do you know if you are at risk for cardiovascular disease or stroke? Cardiovascular disease or heart disease generally refers to various diseases involving the heart or blood vessels. These diseases are closely related and have similar causes, treatment, and risk factors including:  

  • Age 
  • Family History 
  • Stress 
  • High Blood Pressure 
  • High Cholesterol 
  • Smoking (past or presently) 
  • Heavy alcohol use 
  • Obesity 
  • Lack of exercise 
  • High-fat diet 
  • Having other medical conditions, such as diabetes, thyroid abnormalities or other metabolic imbalances 

 Any combination of these risk factors can contribute to the development of atherosclerosis (plaque), one of the main underlying causes of cardiovascular disease. If you are over the age of 50, or over 40 with additional risk factors, you are a candidate. 

Normally, by the time heart problems are detected, atherosclerosis is usually quite advanced, having progressed for decades. There is therefore increased emphasis on preventing atherosclerosis by modifying risk factors, such as healthy eating, exercise, and avoidance of smoking. 

Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death worldwide. Each year, heart disease kills more Americans than cancer. In recent years, cardiovascular risk in women has been increasing and has killed more women than breast cancer. 

According to the American Heart Association, 60% of individuals presenting to the hospital with myocardial infarction are asymptomatic (having no symptoms) until the time of the event. 

Schedule your appointment for one of our affordable screenings to detect your risk of heart attack, stroke, and/or abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Gain your peace of mind today!
