Preventive Health Management to Avoid Heart Disease and Chronic Diseases

Cardiovascular disease (CVD), or “heart disease,” includes coronary heart disease (heart attack or angina), congestive heart failure, stroke and congenital heart defects. High blood pressure is also considered a cardiovascular disease. Heart disease in women and men is our No. 1 killer.

According to the American Heart Association, CVD is the leading cause of death in America, killing nearly twice as many people as cancer. Coronary heart disease alone is the No. 1 killer of Americans, and stroke is No. 3. That is because millions of Americans are at risk. One in four U.S. adults has high blood pressure or hypertension. More than 70% of adults and more than 8 million children are either overweight or burdened by obesity. Poor diet and lack of adequate exercise are the main culprits.

At Central Park West Physicians, you will discover the most effective prevention strategies; physician-supervised weight loss, nutritional guidance and support, help with metabolism problems, gentle exercise programs and wellness education.
