A healthy heart is essential for overall well-being. At any age, adopting a healthy lifestyle can help you avoid heart diseases and reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke. You are never too late or too early in taking care of your heart. But unfortunately, if you suffer from any heart-related issue, you should immediately consult a cardiologist, who can treat any symptoms of heart disease you may be experiencing and diagnose any underlying conditions. Dr. Yana Simova is a cardiologist with more profound expertise in the surgery of Arterial stiffness (increasing fragmentation, loss of elastin fibers, and the accumulation of stiffer collagen fibers in the artery wall causing arterial stiffening).
