Test Your Heart
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men in the United States with nearly 2,400 Americans dying of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) each day. Nearly 70% of the US population has some level of heart disease.
The American Heart Association recommends that heart attack prevention begin by age 20. This means assessing your risk factors and working to keep them low. For those over 40, or those with multiple risk factors, its important to determine the risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years. Many first time heart attacks or strokes are fatal or disabling, so prevention is critical.
Knowing your potential risk will enable you and your healthcare provider to take control of your health and work to develop a plan to defend yourself against cardiovascular disease.
