Heart and circulatory wellbeing are very important to good health. Cardiovascular diseases are thought to cause more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK (that equates 160,000 deaths each year).
Currently, an estimated seven million people are living with cardiovascular disease in the UK, but this does not account for those whose symptoms have not been recognised or may have been misdiagnosed. With preventative medicine being core to the ethos of Grace Belgravia, accurately identifying health risks and treating them before they have a chance to develop is paramount to our practice.
Grace Medical Clinic, led by Dr Tim Evans, is home to leading GPs and practitioners and can offer extensive diagnostic testing and analysis to ensure optimum health. Heart disease is not discriminatory and affects both men and women equally.
High blood pressure and high cholesterol are key contributors to heart diseases and our health and lifestyle choices can greatly affect our risk of developing serious problems. Stress, sleep quality, weight, our relationship with nutrition and exercise can all play important roles in determining good heart health. By educating ourselves and making informed choices based on one’s unique biological makeup, genetics and family history Grace Medical can help you to support all aspects of optimising heart health.
