How to Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease
The death rate from cardiovascular disease is not improving. In fact, it is rising for middle-aged Americans.
To help reduce your risk for developing the deadly disease, there are some key strategies to employ, including managing your blood pressure, controlling your cholesterol, getting regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight. Beyond those recommendations, be sure to avoid smoking and regularly check in with your calcium levels to ensure a build up is not on the horizon. While these are likely easier said than done, positive lifestyle adjustments can help keep your heart healthy for longer. Pop on over to Medline Plus for additional ideas.
