Are You at Risk

for heart disease or insulin resistance?

Heart Disease

Far too many young Americans are having heart attacks or strokes and many are life-ending events. In fact, someone in the U.S. has a heart attack every 43 seconds.

Heart disease and stroke are the leading cause of death and can make it impossible for some adults to return to work and everyday life. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are more people under age 65 who are dying from preventable heart disease and strokes than those who are older than 65. Heart attack and strokes have long been thought of as a “man’s disease”, but these kill more women each year than the next four causes of death combined, including cancer.

Mid-South Urgent Care wants to help you identify your risk for heart disease and take steps to prevent it. Through simple blood and urine tests, our doctors can assess inflammation to give us a more complete picture of your individual risk for heart attack and stroke. Watch the video below to learn more about this very important, potentially life-saving test and then call us today to schedule yours.
