Dr. Rambhatla reminds us: “Please see your doctor annually, know your numbers, and start prevention now to avoid having to treat the disease after it has started. Even if we feel healthy now, the goal is to prevent and avoid a heart attack in the next 10-20 years, because if We had underlying heart risk factors that we are not aware of, these can develop into real disease in 10 to 15. It’s best to address them now and if no risk factors are found, it’s important to re-evaluate every few years because our bodies change as we age Sometimes heart disease or risk factors remain undiagnosed until it is too late.”

Dr. Iloyumad adds: “It is very important that your battle against heart disease begins with preventive care. Find a primary care physician, know your health information/data, practice healthy living and educate yourself about your personal risk of developing heart disease.”
