Make Heart-Healthy Choices This Holiday Season
Recent research shows that weight control may also preserve kidney function, a vital component of cardiovascular health.
Family get-togethers, parties and many hours indoors enjoying a warm kitchen are all part of the holiday season. But this time of year can often be a time of overeating and excessive alcohol consumption-both of which not only can pack on the pounds, but pose real risks for heart patients. Cleveland Clinic cardiologist and Heart Advisor physician-editor Leslie Cho, MD, reminds heart patients and those with risk factors to be mindful of their choices, especially during the holidays.
