Preventative Cardiology Q & A

Can I eat smart foods that help my heart?

Yes, there are a number of foods that help increase cardiac health. Foods that lower cholesterol are a prime example of foods that help improve cardiac strength and performance. Whole grains, such as oatmeal and spelt, are other examples. Preventative cardiology is very much a partnership between the patient and the doctor.

Should I exercise to prevent cardiac disease?

The answer to this question is maybe. You may have expected the answer to be yes, but Dr. Tripathy recommends that you have a physical before you begin any kind of cardiac exercise program. This is so that you have guidance in choosing a cardiac exercise program that best fits your fitness level. The goal is that you gain heart health not to damage your heart or body by doing too much too soon.

Should I visit my doctor on a regular basis?

Yes, you should. An annual heart checkup or physical is the perfect time to monitor cholesterol, blood pressure, and general health. This is also the perfect time for you to develop positive goals to improve your cardiac performance and to measure last year's goals too. Dr. Neeraj Tripathy, MD has a lot of experience in helping his patients find the best exercise and lifestyle to prevent heart disease.
