Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women worldwide. Women's heart health faces some unique considerations, including hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy-related complications, and menopause. Heart disease and stroke can affect women of all ages, making it critical for women to understand their risk factors. At Samuel Family Cardiology, we pay special attention to women’s heart health and help manage heart disease before it gets serious.
Pregnancy-related cardiac concerns can also be particularly crucial to monitor and treat to ensure the health of both mother and child during pregnancy.
The risk for cardiovascular disease may be high for women with the following types of pregnancy complications:
- Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
- Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM)
- Idiopathic preterm birth
- Delivery of a baby with intrauterine growth restriction
- Placental abruption
At Samuel Family Cardiology, we pay special attention to pregnant women’s heart health. Women with pregnancy complications should have specialized follow-ups, including a thorough assessment of their medical history, physical examination, biochemical screening, counseling around lifestyle modification, and therapeutic intervention (in some cases).
Dr. John Samuel and Dr. Paulraj Samuel have extensive experience in treating a wide range of heart conditions, including hypertension, vascular diseases, atherosclerosis, heart failure, and more. During your consultation, they take the time to understand your unique history and needs and then create a targeted treatment plan to reduce the likelihood of any heart condition.
