WHAT IS CARDIOVASCULAR (HEART) DISEASE?
Cardiovascular disease is a collection of conditions that affect the health of the heart and blood vessels. Two of the most common cardiovascular diseases are heart attack and stroke. With pre-diagnosis and proper treatment, the risk of heart disease can be significantly reduced. Passionate about comprehensive health, our board-certified Heart Disease Doctor Schaumburg IL physicians at Horizon Medical Center deliver the care needed to help patients enjoy heart health. We treat coronary artery disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), and peripheral vascular disease, among other heart-related concerns. In addition, our board-certified lipidologist is an expert at treating and managing high cholesterol, which is often a precursor for heart attacks and strokes. If heart problems run in your family or you have been diagnosed with a heart condition, please visit our Schaumburg, IL family medicine practice for personalized cardiovascular care.
HOW IS HEART DISEASE TREATED?
Heart disease may be congenital (present at birth) or acquired (developed over time). You can reduce your risk for developing cardiovascular conditions and boost your heart health by eating a proper diet, getting regular exercise, limiting alcohol consumption, and avoiding tobacco use. At Horizon Medical Center, our physicians can run a variety of cardiovascular testing at our facility, including Treadmill Stress Test with Nuclear Heart Scan, echocardiograms, electrocardiograms (EKG), and 24-hour Holter heart monitoring. In addition to lifestyle changes, our doctors may prescribe medications to help treat hypertension, high cholesterol, and other cardiovascular conditions to lower the risk of heart failure or stroke.
