February is American Heart Month

Pharmacy (health Awareness)

Heart disease is America’s number-one killer, with about 82.6 million people in the United States having some form of cardiovascular disease. Celebrate American Heart Month by reviewing the heart disease risk factors that you can control and take steps to decrease your risk:

So what can you do to protect yourself from heart disease? While there are some risk factors you can’t control, such as age, gender, heredity, race and diabetes, there are risk factors for heart disease you CAN control, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, exercise, obesity and stress.

By eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and exercising regularly for at least 30 minutes each day, you can do wonders for your heart. Determine whether or not your weight is within a healthy range, don’t smoke and limit how much alcohol you drink. You should also talk with your health care provider about your heart care. Talk to him or her about monitoring your blood pressure, testing your cholesterol levels and regularly monitoring your blood sugar levels if you have diabetes.

And if you already take good care of your heart, then you can help fight heart disease by encouraging others to do the same.
