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).
|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|
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.
