The New Book by Mohamed Shalaby MD
Millions of people across the country suffer from a collection of cardiac conditions grouped under the umbrella term heart disease. Yet few people truly understand what this diagnosis means—and more importantly, what they can do to mitigate the effects of the disease.
Now, renowned cardiologist Mohamed Shalaby, MD, FACC, draws from his years of experience successfully treating heart patients and collects his wisdom and knowledge into one accessible volume.
Told in narrative form, this book introduces readers to a number of patients with an array of different forms of heart disease. Each case begins with the patient’s presenting complaint and follows along the process of physical examination, lab work, testing, diagnosis, and discussion of treatment between the doctor and patient.
Knowledge is power, and Heart Healthy Action Plan provides a wealth of knowledge, delivered in a friendly, conversational manner, that will empower you to take control of your and your loved ones' heart health.
Author and early detection cardiology specialist Mohamed Shalaby, MD, FACC, spends early chapters of the book explaining, in easily digestible terms, the scale of the problem, what the different types of heart disease are, and risk factors, as well as raising awareness about special populations who can be easily missed, such as women, youths, and athletes. He also includes a useful chapter on finding scientifically approved testing methods that are simple, safe, and economically feasible.
