Support Groups and Sport Groups
Here are some links to various support groups in Germany for cardiac patients.
Support for Arterial Disease Patients
Individual groups can be found at the AVK support group association website:
A patient diary can be a very useful tool in order to document the status of your condition, keep track of symptoms and prepare for upcoming medical appointments.
Heart Sports Groups
Patients with cardiovascular disease can get involved in the “heart sports group” in there region where experienced trainers and doctors are available to offer help with exercise and nutritional advice to reduce cardiovascular risks.
Vascular Sports Groups
Vascular sports groups also offer expert guidance to cardiac patients who want to get active. However, these groups are not as multiple in number as heart sports groups so PAD patients might prefer opting for a heart sports group instead.
