If you want to improve your heart health, it's essential to "know your numbers." Your numbers paint a picture of your overall heart health. They include:
- Cholesterol levels, including HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol
- Blood pressure
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Glucose levels
- Waist circumference
Talk about your numbers with your doctor at your annual physical. Together, you can develop a plan that helps you keep these numbers under control and reduces your risk for heart attack and stroke.
If you think you are at risk for heart disease, call (843) 402-CARE to learn how you can meet with a member of our heart health team.
