We get bombarded by health news, research, tips and warnings every day. Eat this, don’t eat that. Do this, don’t do that.
Sometimes there’s a lot of noise, and we miss the message.
Here’s a message you don’t want to miss: There are small changes you can make to reduce your risk factors for heart disease.
“My goal is to empower people to make changes to improve their heart health by educating them on their risk factors and showing them what changes they can make,” said Mostafa O. El-Refai, M.D., cardiologist with Norton Heart & Vascular Institute. “Making changes can be a challenge, but a healthier heart is worth it.”
When you know how lifestyle choices affect your heart in the long run, there are changes you can start making now that will benefit your heart and your health. If you want to learn more about the risk factors for heart disease, visit learnyourlinks.com.
Dr. El-Refai focuses on eight risk factors for heart disease: diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, cholesterol, weight, family history, sleep and stress.
