80% of Cardiac and Stroke Events May Be Prevented
February 3, 2017
Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds.
Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. Today team members in our Mequon, Milwaukee and Waukesha offices wanted to help spread the word…
Five numbers, that all people should know to take control of their heart health are:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL (good) Cholesterol
- Blood Pressure
- Blood Sugar
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
Knowing these numbers can help people and their healthcare providers determine their risk for developing cardiovascular diseases.
