When to check Cardiology?

If you're experiencing any of the following conditions, consider consulting one of our cardiologists:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath:

Difficulty breathing, especially if it occurs suddenly or during physical activity, may indicate underlying heart issues that require cardiological attention.

  • Palpitations or irregular heartbeats:

Palpitations, irregular heartbeats, or changes in heart rhythm can be signs of heart rhythm disorders like atrial fibrillation. A cardiologist can evaluate and diagnose such conditions.

  • High blood pressure:

If you have persistent high blood pressure, a cardiologist can help manage and control hypertension to prevent cardiovascular complications.

  • Family history of heart diseases:

Regular check-ups with a cardiologist are advisable if you have a family history of heart diseases. This helps assess the risk and take preventive measures.

  • High cholesterol:

Elevated cholesterol levels can increase the risk of heart diseases. A cardiologist can evaluate cholesterol levels and provide guidance on lifestyle changes and, if necessary, medical treatment.

  • Obesity or overweight:

Excess weight can contribute to heart problems. A cardiologist can work with you to develop weight loss strategies and improve cardiovascular health.
