Risk factors for heart attacks

Posted on August 21, 2013 at 1:53 PM
There are traditionally five main risk factors for artherosclerosis (furring up of the blood vessels that can lead to angina and heart attacks)
 
1. high blood pressure
2. smoking
3. high cholesterol
4. a family history of heart disease below the age of 60
5. a previous heart attack
 
addressing the ones you can modify is important
1. checking and if necessary reducing your cholesterol (usually less than 4.8mmol/l)
2. checking and if necessary reducing your blood pressure (usually to less than 135/85mmHg)
3. stopping smoking ( www.smokefree.nhs.uk is a useful resource)
 
prevention is better than cure!
