DO YOU WANT TO LIVE LONGER AND HEALTHIER???
One person dies every 33 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease. About 695,000 people in the United States died from heart disease in 2021—that’s 1 in every 5 deaths. Now think about how a heart attack or stroke can impact your life…
That is why I put such a strong focus on cardiovascular health. I emphasize doing whatever possible to mitigate the risk factors that lead to plaque formation and the progression of clogged arteries (atherosclerotic disease).
There are tools that you, the patient, can use to calculate your risk of having a heart attack or stroke over the next ten years. Hit the link to calculate your risk.
If you hit this link you will find a short article from the Mayo Clinic about the beneficial use of these risk calculators.
If you simply have a desire to control your risk factors that contribute to clogged arteries or if you have an increased risk of developing clogged arteries (based on your score using the risk calculator), please discuss this with me at your next scheduled visit.
