Cold and Flu Season Can Be a Monster

Flu & Cold Season Can Be A Monster

Help us protect our patients, families and staff from RSV and the flu by following these visitation restrictions currently in effect.

  • No visitors under the age of 12 are allowed in patient care areas.
  • Please do not visit patients if you are experiencing fever, vomiting, diarrhea or cold or flu-like symptoms.

Nutrition & Heart Health

Your heart. It is a critically important part of your body.  Without your heart, your body will be deprived of the necessary oxygen and energy your body needs to live.  A healthy heart will keep blood flowing smoothly and offer energy for life.

Taking care of your heart means managing your cholesterol, or the fats in your blood.  These fats can clog the arteries supplying oxygen to the muscles in your heart that pumps blood to the rest of your body.  If you are an adult or child with high cholesterol or have a family history of heart disease onset at an early age, you are a good candidate for nutrition counseling.

A heart healthy diet is low in saturated fats and high in fruits and vegetables.  A dietitian can work with you to assess your current eating habits and lifestyle, while taking into account your medical history and medications to help you adopt a heart healthy life. 

WakeMed dietitians have many years of experience counseling patients with cardiac disease. Put their experience to work for you today.  Your heart will thank you.
