Cardio Nutrition Education

Following a heart-healthy diet can help prevent heart disease, heart attacks, and blockages in your arteries. Healthy food habits also help to lower high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and excess body weight.

Post-Surgery Education

Post-surgery cardiac patients meet with a registered dietitian who works with them to develop a heart-healthy dietary plan before being discharged from the hospital. In the days and weeks after surgery, patients may not regain their normal appetite. It is important to eat adequate calories and protein to help facilitate the healing process, then continue with the agreed upon healthy diet once healed. Individuals with diabetes need to pay particular attention to blood sugar control for post-surgery healing. Those who find their blood sugars are out of control even when taking medications on time and following a prescribed diet should contact their primary care physician.
