Over the past few decades, the childhood obesity epidemic has made it more important than ever for children to be screened for risk factors of adult heart disease. Our Nemours pediatric preventive cardiology experts can evaluate and offer guidance for kids of all ages dealing with conditions that could put them at risk for heart problems, such as obesity and diabetes.

Children’s eating, exercising and lifestyle habits today can have a huge impact, positive and negative, on their health down the road. Pinpointing and addressing possible problems early on can keep kids from having big health issues (such as strokes, heart attacks and heart disease) as adults.

That’s where our Nemours preventive cardiology experts come in. We evaluate and offer guidance for kids of all ages dealing with conditions that could put them at risk for heart issues (especially atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries) including:

  • weight problems or obesity
  • high blood pressure (also called hypertension)
  • diabetes
  • high (elevated) cholesterol

Our experts can perform a complete cardiovascular risk evaluation and if your child is at risk, develop a personalized management plan that includes practical ways (like changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle) to reduce your child’s likelihood of future cardiovascular disease. And our preventive cardiologists work along with your child’s primary care doctor to help your child grow into a healthy adult.
