Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in America. There are several risk factors that may increase heart disease risk. If you know your risk factors you can make the lifestyle changes necessary to help reduce your risk for heart disease and heart attack. But this requires action on your part. You have to "Know your Numbers" when it comes to good heart health. Do you know what your blood pressure is? Do you smoke? Do you know if your cholesterol is too high? Is your body mass index under 25? Your primary care physician can help you keep tabs on this vital information so you can take charge of your heart health. Remember, you can visit the Norton Women's Heart Center at Norton Suburban Hospital for lifesaving heart and vascular screenings. Call (502) 629-1234 to schedule one today.
