Schedule a heart checkup
Do you have any idea how healthy you are? But how strong is your heart? It’s very important to know your risk factors and to be informed about the potential issues.
“Schedule a checkup with your primary care physician to learn about your personal risk factors. You will learn about your blood pressure and have labs drawn to check your cholesterol and glucose levels. Go to the appointment with information about your family’s history of heart disease [so that your doctor can provide you with the best and most accurate advice possible to keep your heart healthy],” says Dr. Goldberg.
