Did you know that the CDC recommends that men over the age of 40 and women over the age of 50 have an annual heart health exam? Unfortunately, many patients do not take advantage of an annual exam. Heart attacks often do not have warning signs and can happen suddenly and unexpectedly.
The good news is that you don’t have to be in the dark about heart health. At PrimaryCare Indy, we do everything we can for our patients to prevent these events from occurring. We do this by seeking to help our patients manage their blood pressure and cholesterol to prevent build up and damage.
Elevated cholesterol causes a build-up of plaque in your coronary arteries (circling your heart), while elevated blood pressure causes damage to your vessels and increases your risk for heart attack and stroke. Schedule your visit today and let us help you take control of your health this year!
