Women’s Heart Disease Risk
If you have conditions or habits that can lead to heart disease, such as smoking, being overweight, or not getting enough physical activity, what you may not realize is that with even one risk factor, you are much more likely to develop heart disease. A damaged heart can damage your life by interfering with enjoyable activities and even your ability to do simple things such as taking a walk or climbing steps.
How Women at Heart Can Help
Research shows that women can lower their heart disease risk enormously – by 82 percent – simply by leading a healthy lifestyle. For all women, adopting a healthy lifestyle is important and Women at Heart wants to help you with nutrition counseling, education and news about the latest treatments available. Making healthy changes in your daily habits can add years to your life – vital, active years.
