Certain factors – from lifestyle to genetics – can increase your risk for heart disease. It’s important to know your risk factors and understand the ways to improve your cardiovascular health.
Knowing the numbers from your lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides), as well as your blood pressure and blood sugar levels, can help determine your risk for heart disease. This educational presentation will provide an overview of cardiovascular values, risk factor reduction and preventive measures, as well as an understanding of healthy ranges for cholesterol, blood pressure, BMI (Body Mass Index) and blood sugar.
