KNOW YOUR HEART
Know Your Heart
Did you know that while you work, sleep, eat and exercise, your heart beats about 100,000 times and pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood through 60,000 miles of vessels daily throughout your body? And that’s just the start. Knowing how your heart works is the first step in maintaining its healthy functionality. At the Heart Consultants, we help you learn about your heart and vascular system, how it works and the important signs, symptoms and risk factors of heart disease and related issues.
ARE YOU AT RISK FOR HEART DISEASE?
According to CDC reports, 75% of U.S. adults have a "heart age" that is older than their actual age, meaning you may have a higher risk of a heart condition. The “older” your heart, the higher your risk for heart attack or stroke.
PINK OR RED?
Over 60% of women believe their biggest health threat is breast cancer but heart disease kills 6 times as many women as breast cancer. As many as 1 in 3 women die each year from cardiovascular disease or stroke—more than from all cancers combined.
YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD OR YOUNG TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEART.
At any age, a healthy diet, regular exercise, and good-quality sleep are important ways to keep your heart healthy. You can reduce your heart risk — and heart age — at any time!
HEART DISEASE QUIZ: WHAT’S YOUR RISK?
Heart Disease Quiz: What’s Your Risk?
Do you have high blood pressure? How old are you? People with more than one risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) might be at much greater risk for CHD than people with no risk factors. Assess your risk with these questions.
