Bio

HEART DISEASE IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE COUNTRY AND THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION IS WORKING WITH TOP PHYSICIANS TO REDUCE FROM CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE AND STROKE…

JOINING US IS DOCTOR WASEEM CHAUDHRY- A PREVENTATIVE CARDIOLOGIST AT THE HARTFORD HEALTHCARE TALLWOOD MEN’S HEALTH CENTER.

Q. FIRST, HOW COMMON IS HEART DISEASE AND WHAT ARE THE KEY RISK FACTORS FOR HEART DISEASE?

A. Nearly half of all U.S. adults have some type of cardiovascular disease, a percentage that reflects recently updated guidelines for treating high blood pressure, according to a new report. High blood pressure – also known as hypertension – can lead to heart attack, heart failure and stroke. Some controllable risk factors include: smoking, high cholesterol, uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure… and many more.

Q. HOW CAN YOU AS A PREVENTATIVE CARDIOLOGIST AT THE TALLWOOD MEN'S HEALTH CENTER HELP MEN IDENTIFY AND LOWER THEIR RISK OF HEART DISEASE?

A. Researchers have found throughout life, men were about twice as likely as women to have a heart attack. That higher risk persisted even after they accounted for traditional risk factors for heart disease including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, body mass index, and physical activity. At Tallwood, we look at the men’s health as a whole. We find that one challenge men are facing may be caused by something else- we look at everything to make sure the man is healthier as a whole.

Q. WHY DO MORE MEN DIE OF HEART DISEASE THAN WOMEN?

A. Getting men to go to the doctor is one major challenge. Those risk factors also contribute to the cause of heart disease. We work with patients and look at those risk factors.

Thank you, Dr. Chaudhry, for sharing such valuable information for all men.
