February is American Heart Month
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Stay Well Home Health is participating in American Heart Month.
You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is important for people who already have heart disease.
To lower your risk: Watch your weight, quit smoking, and stay away from secondhand smoke, control your cholesterol and blood pressure, drinking alcohol in moderation, get active, and eat healthily.
