(Newswire.net — February 4, 2016) Tampa, FL — Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States each year. “With more than 600 million people dying from this disease, and an another one million Americans suffering from heart attacks, it is incredibly important that we, as health care providers, help to educate our patients and communities about how to improve their health and prevent, or lessen potential damage to their hearts,” says Johana Rodriguez, Marketing Liaison for AvantGarde Urgent Care.

Diabetes and hypertension are two of the major causes of heart disease in patients across America. Both of these health issues are preventable and/ or manageable through simple changes in lifestyle, including:

  • Healthier choices in diet
  • Daily exercise
  • Management of high blood pressure
  • Management of diabetes
  • Stress management
  • Cessation of smoking

Though these issues are manageable, patients will only understand the severity of their individual cases after consultation and diagnosis from a trained physician, like those at AvantGarde Urgent Care.

Throughout the month of February, AvantGarde Urgent Care will be providing free blood pressure checks, and encourage patients and other area residents to take part in American Heart Month with this simple test. 

Regarding this offer, Ms. Rodriguez states, “As part of our ongoing commitment to the community, we want to provide services and information to Tampa residents, that will help prevent heart disease and increase survival of heart attack, and these free blood pressure checks are a great start in that process.”

Should you, or someone you know believe that you are experiencing a cardiac event, including chest pressure, or discomfort, upper body pain, shortness of breath, nausea, cold sweats, or fainting, AvantGarde Urgent Care suggests calling 911 immediately.
