February QA HM

February 8, 2017

This month we are focusing our conversation on the heart as February is Heart Month. Dr. Rohit Gupta gives today answer to this question: 

 

Q: What tests can I get to determine if my heart is “healthy?”

A: The most important tests to have done to keep your heart healthy, are to have your blood pressure, cholesterol, and hemoglobin A1c checked regularly.  Having these tests checked, and treating any abnormalities will help prevent heart problems.  Specific heart tests are not often needed in most patients, unless symptoms develop, such as chest pain or shortness of breath. In these circumstances, we often  perform tests such as an echocardiogram. This is an ultrasound of the heart and checks to see if the heart function is normal. Stress tests can also be done which check to see if significant heart artery blockages are present.
