February is American Heart Month. Heart disease, a term used to describe several types of heart conditions, is the leading cause of death among men and women in the United States. Symptoms of heart disease can sometimes be silent and go undiagnosed until someone exhibits symptoms or signs of arrhythmia, heart attack or heart failure. Some of the key risk factors for heart disease are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking. While heart disease is very scary, some of the ways to lower your risk are regular check ups with your doctor, daily physical activity, and by maintaining a healthy diet. Be sure to always ask your doctor if you have any questions about your risk of heart disease!
