Sports is an important part of every Young person’s life. It is important to keep the body physically fit in today’s fast-paced sedentary society. The best way to do this is to start a habit of regular exercise when young. However, while pursuing health, one should also avoid unnecessary risk. For example, heart conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or coronary artery anomalies can result in sudden death during vigorous exercise. These conditions are easily identified by specific tests a cardiologist can provide. Before starting an exercise program or a vigorous sport, it is prudent to have a comprehensive and formal assessment of the heart by a fully-qualified Cardiologist.
