Why is nutrition important?

Nutrition is important because it’s one of the modifiable risk factors for chronic health conditions like heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. Poor nutrition increases your risk of health problems that affect longevity and the quality of your life.

Good nutrition is eating a variety of nutrient-rich foods in amounts that provide enough energy and nutrients to meet your needs. Your personal nutritional needs depend on factors such as age, weight, physical activity, and health history.

Food preferences, accessibility, and culture influence food choices. Nutrition therapy helps you create an eating plan that fits your health needs and life. 

When should I schedule a nutrition consultation?

You should schedule a nutrition consultation with the team from At Home Cardiology if you have heart disease or concerns about heart disease and want to learn how to eat better. Nutrition is one of the primary treatments for cardiovascular diseases like:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF)

Nutrition also helps manage cardiovascular disease risk factors like hypertension and high cholesterol. 

At Home Cardiology also emphasizes nutrition for heart disease prevention. 

What can I expect from nutrition therapy?

You can expect customized nutrition therapy from At Home Cardiology. Before making recommendations, the team conducts a thorough history and physical. They also ask about your usual eating, cooking, and shopping habits and your health goals.

The team spends time talking to you about how nutrition affects health. Then, they work with you, providing the guidance and support you need to make small changes to your usual eating habits that improve your nutrition and health.

Eating affects your physical, emotional, and social well-being. Good nutrition is about finding balance, eating more of the foods that benefit your health, but not eliminating all the foods you enjoy.

Can nutrition therapy help me lose weight?

The At Home Cardiology team can provide nutrition therapy for weight loss. Getting to a healthy weight is good for heart health. It lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and may reduce the risk of health problems like diabetes.

If you want to lose weight, the cardiology team can create a nutrition plan that helps you achieve your goals.
