Cardiac Disease Risk Reduction

Heart disease is the  No. 1 cause of death in the United States. Stroke is the No. 5 cause of death in the United States.  

The risk factors for heart disease are either modifiable or non-modifiable.    

non-modifiable risk factors include:

Age

As we age, arteris become thicker and stiffer, increasing your risk of heart disease. 

Genetics

If anyone in your biological family has had heart disease, you have a higher risk - BUT lifestyle still plays a role.

Gender

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, there are some differences between genders. Women tend to experience heart attacks about 10 years later in life than men.  However, women are twice as likely as men to die within the first few weeks after suffering a heart attack.

There Are A Lot of Things You Can Do To Lower Your Risk.  modifiable risk factors include:

  • Quit smoking

  • Exercise

  • Reduce stress 

  • Lose weight

  • Reduce fat, salt and sugar 

  • Reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol

  • Lower your blood pressure

  • Limit alcohol

  • Manage diabetes

One of the biggest contributors to heart disease is a lack of commitment to a heart healthy lifestyle. Your choices influence your heart health.  Lifestyle changes can greatly reduce your risks and are your best defense against heart disease and stroke.
