Modern lifestyle has been marked by the great influence of negative factors, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
By getting rid of bad habits, exercising regularly and having regular cardiological examinations, we can reduce the chance of unwanted cardiovascular events and directly prolong life.
We recommend a specialist cardiologist examination and diagnostic overview of the heart, veins, and arteries of the heart, legs and neck (Color Doppler), especially if you are submissive to some of the following risk factors:
- smoking cigarettes
- reduced physical activity
- stress exposure
- history of cardiac deaths in the family
- increased blood fat
- high blood pressure
- professional athletes.
Color Doppler is an ultrasound, painless and non-invasive examination that determines the structure and function of the condition of the heart, vein, leg arteries, carotid, and vertebral blood vessels. It determines plaque existence in arteries and veins, blood flow quality, and estimates the risk of stroke, heart attack, and venous thrombosis.
Croatia is the country with the highest incidence of thyroid cancer in the world. Between 10 and 100 thousand people have it diagnosed per year. We are also experiencing a growing number of people who have body weight problems, feel fatigue, increased heartbeat, excessive sweating, or skin problems caused by thyroid!
In the MediDerm clinic, laboratory tests of thyroid and antibody hormones are performed, complete with ultrasound diagnostics and cytological puncture.
