AUDIO: Dr. Bove Explains The Heart Disease Warning Signs

Rate This

While people are trying to minimize the risk of heart disease, give women some warning signs and possible things that they should be aware of, that if they see, they should talk to a doctor.

Dr. Alfred Bove:
Well, from my standpoint, if you wait for clinical warning signs, you’ve missed the ball game, you know it’s the horse is out of the barn. I mean what you need, I keep saying -- you need to know your numbers, you need to know your blood pressure, you need to know your cholesterol. If you don’t know those numbers, I tell all of my patients, if you have a family doctor and he does your blood test, ask him for a copy of the blood test.

And one of the things I would expect on, let’s say, they all know Web tools and things like that would be the guidelines for what blood pressure should be.
