HEART SYMPTOMS

One of the most commonest causes of Death worldwide and in the UK is due to heart problems.    Some patients might experience symptoms such as:
Chest pain or ache (Angina)
Shortness of Breath
Heart Failure
Heart Murmur/ Heart Valve problems
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Palpitations (Fast Heart Rate, Skipped or Extra Heart Beat)
Dizziness
Blackouts
Some patients might not experience any symptoms, but might suffer from an increased risk of developing a heart problem in the future. The earlier a heart condition can be detected, Treatments can be started to protect patients in order to avoid  serious consequences in future. We would therefore recommend particularly in those patients who have significant risk factors to undergo a Heart Check up.
Risk factors such as:

Family History of Ischaemic heart disease
High Cholesterol 
High Blood Pressure
Diabetes (High Blood Sugar)
Active, passive and Ex -smokers
Men aged 40+
Woman aged 50+
Early detection can slow the progression of cardiovascular disease
