It was Mother’s Day recently and I was lucky enough to spend the day with my mother. In February my mother was diagnosed and treated for heart disease. She had been having chest pain when walking and it even woke her at night. She had to be admitted into the hospital and got a trip to my very own Heart & Vascular Center at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center
It’s February, that means it’s Heart Month! However, here at the Heart & Vascular Center at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center, every month is Heart Month. It’s our constant goal to provide excellent cardiac care for every patient every time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have dedicated staff willing to leave their families day or night to care for you and your family members. I’m so proud to be part of a select group that is willing to commit to the constant demands, the continuing education, and the call time.
Holiday festivities tend to be a time of temptations, a time where even the most health-conscious individuals indulge in a large variety of foods. There may be 20 different dishes in front of you and your goal may be to try every single one, twice. This article wasn’t written to discourage such behavior, but to aid and warn in the health risks and signs to watch for.
Large meals increase the risk of heart attacks, gallbladder pain, drowsiness, fatigue and much more.
