Heart Health

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States. But it can be prevented.

Heart disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart. These include:

  • Blood vessel disease, such as coronary artery disease
  • Heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias)
  • Heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects)
  • Heart valve disease
  • Disease of the heart muscle
  • Heart infection

While genetics certainly influence your risk of developing heart disease, a healthy lifestyle can help keep your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels normal and lower your risk for heart disease and heart attack.

By talking to a Boca Grande Health Clinic doctor about heart disease, you can take an important step in managing your heart health.
