Leading New York Cardiologist Dr. Steven Reisman to be Featured on The Jeremy Kyle Show to Discuss Obesity, Diabetes and Heart Disease

New York, New York (PressExposure) January 20, 2012 -- The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center announced today Dr. Steven Reisman, a New York City cardiologist, will be featured on an upcoming episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show. Dr. Reisman will be discussing the increased risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome for individuals who are overweight or obese.

"Obesity is one of the leading factors of why people develop conditions like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Prevention is critical," said Dr. Steven Reisman, Director of the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center. "The next best thing after prevention is early intervention and that's why our practice is committed to services like echocardiography, stress tests and cardiac CT scans to help patients identify their risk early and take action."

According to the American Heart Association, over one-third (33.7%) of U.S. adults are obese (nearly 75 million adults). Even when there are no adverse effects on the known risk factors, obesity by itself increases risk of heart disease. It also harms more than just the heart and blood vessel system. It's a major cause of gallstones and can worsen degenerative joint disease. Even losing a few pounds can provide you with cardiovascular benefits, so every step in the right direction is a step toward healthier living.

The Jeremy Kyle Show, an original one-hour American version of the No. 1-rated daytime talk show in the U.K., airs weekdays on a number of leading stations, including those belonging to the FOX, Sinclair, CBS, Hearst, Cox, Newport and CW Plus broadcast groups.
