What can you do to strengthen your heart health?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), if a family member has been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, you are likely at risk for the same medical condition. Monitor these health habits and reduce your risk of developing the disease.
- Diet: Watch what you eat. High levels of sodium and fat hide in your favorite meals and treats. Add more fresh greens and fruits as snacks.
- Exercise: Add a walking or running routine to your schedule. Adults need at least two and a half hours of various physical activity a week. Speak with your doctor about the best exercise routine for you.
- Tobacco use: Tobacco products take a toll on your health, no matter what age you are. Every cigarette you smoke makes you more susceptible to heart disease.
- Blood pressure and cholesterol: Don't forget your yearly physical. Routine exams log health history of blood pressure and cholesterol levels, helping your doctor effectively track signs of heart conditions.
