    NORCROSS, GA, February 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Rodriguez MD, a bilingual Lawrenceville clinic and Center for Medical Weight Loss, encourages patients to stay heart healthy. This includes taking steps to prevent and control coronary heart disease, which can cause heart attack, angina, heart failure, stroke, and arrhythmias. All patient check-ups at Rodriguez MD's Lawrenceville family practice include blood pressure screenings; they may also recommend a simple blood test to check cholesterol levels.

Making healthy choices and lifestyle decisions can often help prevent heart disease. The Gwinnett doctors at Rodriguez MD offer prevention planning to patients at high risk for developing heart disease. Heart health tips include:
- Eat a healthy, low-sodium diet
- Maintain a healthy weight by monitoring your Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Exercise regularly
- Don't smoke
- Avoid alcohol in excess

As an official Center for Medical Weight Loss in Gwinnett County, Rodriguez MD offers comprehensive and personalized weight loss programs to help patients lose weight and keep it off. This is an important step in preventing heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes.

"To celebrate American Heart Month, we're encouraging patients to take time to learn how to prevent and control heart disease, #1 cause of death for men and women in America" explains Neville Street, the Lawrenceville clinic's Administrative Director. "Americans should talk to their physicians how ways to stay heart healthy and schedule routine exams to monitor risk factors and overall health," say Street. According to the CDC, every year approximately 715,000 Americans have a heart attack and about 600,000 will die from heart disease.
