Aspirin Regimen Bayer® Low Dose Overview
Are You at Risk for a Heart Attack?YOU CAN CONTROL SOME RISKSThe more you know about managing stress, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other controllable heart attack risk factors, the more you’re living the heart-healthy way. Here are some of the risks that you can control:
- Lack of Physical Activity
- Being Overweight
- A Fatty, Salty or Sugary Diet
- High cholesterol (HDL)
- High Blood Pressure
Prescription Medications May Not Be EnoughIt’s well documented that high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes raise the risk of heart attack as well as stroke. Your doctor may have already prescribed medications for these conditions, and if you’ve already had a heart or clot-related (ischemic) stroke, your risk of having another event increases, too.
Fortunately, there are several options you and your doctor can discuss. From lifestyle changes to medication and more, working with your doctor to help control hypertension (high blood pressure), hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol, and diabetes is always a smart move.
Get Moving to Get Heart HealthyHOW MOVING YOUR BODY CAN HELP YOUR HEART.Your heart is a muscle. So just like the rest of your body, exercise makes it stronger. Exercise can lower the risk of heart disease in healthy people. Heart disease patients can also cut their risk of dying from heart disease.
Exercise can also reduce your risk of heart disease by:
- Lowering your risk of developing diabetes and high blood pressure
- Improving your blood sugar tolerance if you have diabete
- Helping to control high blood pressure
- Improving your blood lipids, such as cholesterol
- Supporting your efforts to quit smoking
- Controlling your weight and body fat
The first thing to do before you start any exercise routine is to talk to your doctor.
GET & STAY ACTIVETalk to your doctor before you begin any exercise routine. Exercise may be good for your heart and circulation.
EAT HEALTHYTalking to your doctor about healthy eating choices can be another powerful step starting right now. Even lowering your sodium intake can be a start because it can help keep your blood pressure in check.
CONTROL YOUR CHOLESTEROLIf your doctor has prescribed a statin (medicine for lowering your cholesterol), taking it as directed is an important part of maintaining your health.
CONTROL YOUR BLOOD PRESSURELowering your blood pressure lowers the risk of another ischemic stroke, so take your prescribed blood pressure medicine as directed by your doctor.
