Re-Make Your Plate for a Healthier Heart

At Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care, we’re observing American Heart Month. Heart disease is the single largest threat to the health of Americans. It is responsible for more deaths than all forms of cancer combined. It also can wreak havoc with your feet through clogged arteries and poor circulation. One of the best weapons available for fighting heart disease and decreasing your risk for coronary problems is your diet. Our podiatrists, Dr. Varun Gujral and Dr. Nrupa Shah want you to know that maintaining a healthy weight and eating a nutritious diet can go a long way to improving the health of your heart and your feet. Below are some simple steps to take to move your food plan in a healthier direction.

Many patients are unaware that symptoms of heart disease may first present in your lower extremities. Be sure to make an appointment at our Edison (732-204-6630), Monroe (732-204-6802), or Monmouth Junction (732-204-6945) office promptly if you notice swelling, hair loss on your legs or feet, skin discoloration or temperature changes or cramping in your feet or legs.
