July 17th, 2014. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates publishes a new article discussing how you can assess your risk of developing cardiovascular disease. According to the Boynton Beach-based center, these risk factors are well-established, but the general public is often dangerously unaware of them.
The Delray Beach heart doctors of South Palm Cardiovascular Associates list eight factors that increase your risk of developing heart disease, “These include your age, your family history, your diet, your weight, whether you smoke, your exercise patterns, and your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.” They want patients to understand the risks that lead to cardiovascular disease, and how to reduce those risks so that they remain healthy. They also want the general public to know about the most important preventative measure they can undertake to reduce their risk – get a heart health checkup.
South Palm Cardiovascular Associates feels that if the general public were more aware of the risk factors that lead to heart disease, and how many of them may already be present in their lives, they would be more likely to have regular checkups with their heart doctors. This could potentially enable them to prevent a heart attack or stroke. Interested readers can find more information about this important issue at: http://www.southpalmcardiovascular.com.
