Managing Heart Health Online

There are a number of heart conditions that can impact someone’s life as they age, including, but not limited to:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm)
  • Heart valve disease
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack

Heart healthy life adjustments can lower the risk of these conditions and improve someone’s quality of life over time.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends eating smart and being physically active to stay heart healthy. To eat healthily, the AHA suggests people eat as many calories as they expect to burn in a day. Additionally, people should focus on eating nutritious food from all of the food groups:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Low-fat dairy products
  • Poultry or fish
  • Nuts and legumes
  • Vegetable oils

As for exercise, AHA recommends people complete at least 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise.

During a video consult on TelaCare your doctor will ask you a series of targeted questions to determine the best plan for you. Your provider may recommend in-person examination by a specialist if needed. Your treatment plan is based on the duration and severity of your symptoms and your medical history.

Once a decision has been made, your doctor will go over the risks and benefits of the various treatment plans. Your treatment plan is different depending on the severity.

To improve your heart health, your online physician may recommend:

  • Exercise
  • Change in diet
  • Quitting smoking
