How to Protect Your Heart

We do not give much thought to our heart until something goes wrong with it.

If your physician has diagnosed you with coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease, you are not alone—more than 16 million Americans suffer from this health problem.

CHD is the No. 1 cause of death in both men and women in the United States. It can also lead to serious complications, including angina, heart attacks, heart failure and arrhythmias.

Recent advances are improving the quality and duration of life in those affected by CHD.

Many individuals have one or more risk factors that increase their chances of developing CHD. If you can identify and control your risk factors, you can help prevent the development of CHD and delay its progression. Sometimes, however, comprehensive preventive efforts are not sufficient, and CHD and its complications occur. Fortunately, you and your doctor can manage these disorders with a combination of lifestyle measures, medications, and revascularization procedures.

Act now to help prevent CHD and its complications by learning all you can about heart disease, to preserve your best health and active lifestyle for many years to come.

Where can you turn for the most accurate, reliable advice about your heart health and what to do if you have CHD?
