Preventive Cardiology

What is Preventive Cardiology?

Preventive cardiology is a medical subspecialty which intends to lower the risk of developing heart disease or cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke. Preventive cardiology may include several treatment options to help patients avoid these issues, and the treatments are especially beneficial for those at a higher risk of heart disease. Treatments may be provided by a range of medical professionals including physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, exercise physiologists, and more.

Preventive Cardiology Treatments

Preventive cardiology may include several treatments or therapies to help patients improve their health and avoid cardiovascular disease. The best course of treatment will vary for each patient, making a consultation with an experienced medical professional necessary. Your physician at Hybrid Medical Solution may recommend a combination of the following.

Cardiovascular Risk Assessment

The first step in your preventive cardiology treatment is typically a comprehensive risk assessment. This may include several tests to measure your cholesterol and blood pressure or blood tests to assess C-reactive protein and lipoprotein. Your physician will also evaluate lifestyle factors such as your weight, whether you smoke, diet, and more. Finally, your family and personal health history will be evaluated.

Preventive Cardiology Medications

As needed, medications may be prescribed to help maintain your best possible health and mitigate heart disease. Appropriate medications will vary depending on your specific risk factors.

Many patients who are at a higher risk of heart disease, heart attacks, or stroke may benefit from preventive cardiology. This can include patients with risk factors including:

  • Family history of heart attack, stroke, or peripheral artery disease
  • Personal history of cardiovascular disease, especially before age 60
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Cholesterol disorders
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes or high blood sugar
