Heart disease remains a leading cause of mortality globally, but understanding its risk factors and prevention strategies empowers us to take proactive steps toward heart health. Key risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle. However, adopting preventive measures can significantly mitigate these risks. Regular physical activity, maintaining a balanced diet low in saturated fats and sugars, managing stress effectively, avoiding tobacco use, and attending regular check-ups for early detection and management of underlying conditions are all vital components of a heart-healthy lifestyle. At Centers Healthcare, by prioritizing prevention and making informed lifestyle choices, we encourage our residents to reduce their risk of heart disease and enjoy a longer, healthier life.
