Symptoms of Heart Disease
As reported by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease stands out as the leading cause of death in the United States. This serious health issue may lead to other chronic conditions, including diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, and obesity. For patients, the first step toward managing their health is identifying their risks and knowing the possible signs. Common symptoms of heart disease include:
- Ankle or feet swelling
- Chest discomfort
- Excessive fatigue
- Heart murmur
- Heart palpitations
- High blood pressure
- Light-headedness or dizziness
- Rapid heartbeat
- Shortness of breath
- Unhealthy cholesterol levels
According to American Heart Association, the warning signs of a heart attack may affect men and women differently. In some cases, women experience no symptoms at all. Signs that manifest differently between the sexes include:
- Breaking out in a cold sweat
- Central chest pain, pressure, or fullness that lasts more than a few minutes
- Discomfort other areas, such as the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach
- Excessive fatigue
- Nausea or vomiting
Please note: For any life-threatening medical emergency, such as a heart attack, dial 911 for immediate medical care.
It’s important to understand that some patients with underlying health issues and other risk factors may be more susceptible to heart disease than others. With a dedication to educating patients on their level of risk and providing personalized care, men’s health and women’s health services are available, as well as those focused on managing chronic conditions like diabetes.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Providers can screen for a variety of health conditions using the latest diagnostic technology, and the care teams of Nirvana Healthcare Management Services emphasize the importance of prevention and early detection. Depending on the symptoms or condition, patients may receive one or more tests.
Cardiovascular evaluations encompass a range of focus areas to provide patients with a clear picture of their overall health. For instance, echocardiograms let providers check heart functionality and vein mapping allows them to identify which veins in the legs are not circulating properly. Some of the other tests available include carotid, arterial, venous, renal, and transcranial Doppler ultrasounds, 24-hour Holter monitoring, and remote home patient monitoring.
Treatments will vary based on assessment results and other factors. In partnership with an experienced, trusted provider, patients can receive the individualized guidance and medical care they need to treat heart disease, make meaningful lifestyle changes, and manage their cardiovascular health for a lifetime.
