The Doctor Is In:
5 Tips To Heart Health

 

It is that time of the year again it is, February. Some people call it the love month but as a doctor this is Heart Health Month. Unfortunately even in 2016 heart disease is the #1 killer of women, causing 1 out of 3 deaths each year. They call heart disease the silent killer because many of us have it and don’t even know it. There is good news though….. 80% of heart disease is preventable in women and more women are beating heart disease than ever before. Here are some tips to help to achieve optimum heart health.

 

STOP SMOKING

It has been proven that when you quit smoking there are great benefits to your heart.

Among persons diagnosed with coronary heart disease, quitting smoking greatly reduces the risk of recurrent heart attack and cardiovascular death. In many studies, this reduction in risk has been 50 percent or more.

Heart disease risk associated with smoking begins to decrease soon after you quit, and for many people it continues to decrease over time.

Your risk of atherosclerosis and blood clots related to smoking declines over time after you quit smoking.

Let's talk heart health. Please let me know what you are going to implement this month to ensure that your heart is healthier next year. If you have any questions or want more information about heart health please visit me at Ask Dr. Reneé.
