Prevention

Take charge of your health

Lifestyle change can make a difference. It is possible to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease – by eliminating the risk factors you can control and managing the risk factors you cannot control.

How you can take charge of your heart health

  • Stop smoking: Women who smoke are 2-6 times more likely to suffer a heart attack than non-smoking women.
  • Control and decrease high-blood pressure.
  • Eat healthy: Control and decrease cholesterol and lower your salt and sugar intake.
  • Exercise: Physical inactivity presents a greater risk of heart disease.
