February is Heart Health Month – Don’t Let Heart Disease Beat You

By Grant Law Office on February 6, 2012

February is “Heart Health Month” in the United States. If you have risk factors for heart disease, or don’t know your heart disease status, now is a great time to see your doctor, according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). It’s also a good time to get a second opinion if you suspect your heart disease has been misdiagnosed or isn’t being treated properly.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, especially those over age 55. Each year, heart disease takes more lives than every form of cancer combined. Heart disease occurs when the heart or the blood vessels that feed it are damaged, often by the buildup of plaque that narrows the blood vessels. Narrow blood vessels means the heart gets less blood in and out with each beat, forcing it to work harder.

If heart disease isn’t treated properly, the heart may fail, resulting in a heart attack. Blood clots may also occur, causing stroke, pulmonary embolism, or other potentially fatal conditions. Even people who survive a heart attack or stroke may suffer permanent disabilities. Although there is no cure for heart disease, early diagnosis and treatment can keep it under control, decreasing your risk for heart attack or stroke.

Heart disease can cause serious health problems, especially if it is not properly diagnosed or treated. If you or someone you love has suffered a heart attack or other serious injury or illness due to a failure to diagnose or treat heart disease, the experienced Atlanta medical malpractice attorneys at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. can help.
