What should I do to prevent cardiovascular diseases?

Did you know that up to 90% of CVD may be preventable?

 

Preventing CVD requires the improvement and treatment of the risk factors (Table 1). 

 

 Risk Factor   Prevention/Treatment
 High Blood Pressure  Medical + lifestyle modification
 High Blood Cholestrol  Medical + lifestyle modification
 Diabetea  Medical + lifestyle modification
 Obesity  Medical + lifestyle modification
 Poor Dietary Habits  Adopt healthy dietary habits
 Sedentary  Increase physical activity levels
 Smoking  Smoking cessation 

 

 

 

While the medical conditions, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol, may need medical intervention, all the risk factors require lifestyle modification. 

 

Think I wrote enough for this blog. I will talk about the dietary modification in the next blog.
