The heart is such an important part of the body and needs to be taken care of immediately when it may be affected by disease. Cardiovascular treatment consists of many different types of treatments that can help you when you may be struggling with heart disease. Dr. Pradip Baiju at Heart and Vascular Care, P.A., can determine what may be causing your heart disease and what form of cardiovascular treatment will be best for you.
Many different types of heart disease could be affecting your body and it’s important to consult with your doctor to run specific tests to help keep you feeling healthy and able to participate in your daily life.
Some examples of tests that our doctor may perform are:
- An Electrocardiogram
- Holter Monitoring
- Stress Tests
- CT Scan
Through these tests, your cardiologist will be able to determine exactly what is affecting your heart. Once your doctor can find out what heart disease you may be dealing with, they’ll be able to find the best method of treatment to help combat your heart disease. They may also recommend some lifestyle changes to help treatment progress as planned, giving you the best results.
Some common forms of cardiovascular treatment are:
- Lifestyle and Diet Changes- You can help lower your risk of heart disease by changing your diet to a low-sodium and low-fat diet, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, and limiting your drinking habits.
- Medications- Sometimes lifestyle changes may not be enough to fully control your heart disease, so your doctor may prescribe you medications to help control certain aspects of your heart disease.
- Medical Procedures or Surgery- Depending on the heart disease you’re struggling with, your doctor may recommend certain surgeries or procedures to help your heart function better in the long run.
