Take Charge of Your Heart
There’s no specific age when men and women need to start thinking about heart health. In fact, a heart healthy lifestyle can be easily maintained by eating right, staying active and meeting with your physician regularly. These are simple tips men and women should have heard and implemented from a young age.
Though as we get older our responsibilities change but there are new tests and assessments we can take and learn to ensure our hearts are healthy and strong as we navigate our busy lives. George B. Batsides, M.D. at Hackensack University Medical Center discusses the importance of heart health for men and women and outlines some indicators on how to know if it the right time to see a cardiologist.
