Cleveland Clinic Prioritizes Heart Health in Abu Dhabi

Due to the high volume of diabetes and smoking in the United Arab Emirates, the median age for experiencing a heart attack is just forty-five years old. A whopping ten years lower than their American and British counterparts– despite the equally high rates of obesity between them all. One factor appears to be the sharp decline in tobacco smoking in the UK and US, contrasted with increase in the UAE.

The Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi ( has itself become the figurative heart, at the epicenter of this crisis. The clinic offers an exclusive technology for hybrid robotic heart surgery to the region. Along with more routine procedures, such as stents, cardiograms, and cardio-imaging. The clinic also features an eclectic team of specialists from different scientific fields. These specialists analyze each case from many angles to create a full picture, ensuring the most effective and certain treatment plan.

The clinic was the choice destination for care for nearly two thousand patients last year. Open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, the hospital is fully equipped to immediately address any cardiac related issue.

Inducing stress on the body with a cardio workout is a good Litmus test for heart problems. Considering that you are more likely to notice the symptoms under physical duress. In more extreme cases, you may experience these symptoms with as little exertion as walking or climbing stairs; as an indication of more life-threatening ailments.

One of the primary causes of mortality in the UAE is cardiovascular disease. But, diabetes is the real ticking time-bomb behind it all. Glycosylation is a complex chemical process that scientists now believe to be the actual source of aging. By causing the accumulation of senile cells in the body. This process is increased dramatically; if we allow ourselves to become diabetic through obesity and smoking, and unhealthy lifestyles in general. Glycosylation is also associated with increased free radicals that cause cancers. And is responsible for exponentially increasing the plaques that clog our arteries.
