Taking Care of Your Heart

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented or successfully mitigated when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Cardiovascular care at UTMB is state of the art and comprehensive, from heart rhythm studies to bypass to transplants to cardiac rehab.

When is it time to see a Cardiologist?

A cardiologist specializes in the treatment and prevention of heart and blood vessel disease. They may use screenings to determine your risk for heart or cardiovascular conditions, provide checkups to monitor your existing heart disease, or perform surgeries to correct or restore your heart health.

You may need to schedule an appointment with a cardiologist if:

  • you are referred by your primary care provider
  • you have a family history of heart disease
  • you have high blood pressure or are at risk
  • your cholesterol is high, or you are at risk
  • you smoke or have a history of smoking
  • you've been diagnosed with diabetes

Early detection of heart issues is key to having a healthy heart. Be aware of symptoms of heart disease and speak with your primary care provider on the importance of heart health.
