How To Keep Your Heart – Healthy

Keeping your heart healthy is essential for longevity. All adult Indians are prone to heart problems, especially those at higher risk who have a high level of cholesterol, high blood pressure, higher sugar levels, and are smokers.

Most vulnerable are those who:

  • Are smokers for a long time
  • Are you overweighed or have obese conditions
  • Do not get involved in physical activity
  • Are used to take unhealthy diet

The risk increase with the increase in number of risk factors and with the severity of risk factors.

Age and genetic medical history also cause risk for heart disease. The most common factors that may lead to the risk are:

  • A woman above the age of 55
  • A man above the age of 45
  • Someone whose parents had heart disease before the age of 55
