Health Solutions believes in prevention as a cure. Heart Disease is one of the many concerns patients have as they age and in our community we know it is a major factor in enjoying a prolonged lifespan. Regular monitoring and patient education makes Health Solutions a strong partner in heart health.
Since heart health can be effected without a patient realizing it, regular doctor blood pressure checkups are essential. Your heart and blood vessels maintain a smooth working body function and can be effected by the smallest changes as we age. Health Solutions staff is here to help you build a heart-healthy lifestyle that can help you avoid or delay heart illness.
Age can affect your heart by:
- Stiffening blood vessels
- Thickening of the heart wall
- Thickening or stiffening heart valves
- Heart sections may change in size
- Other diseases like thyroid or cancer can weaken the heart
- Family history
