(28 April 2019) Do you know the risk factors for a heart attack? There’s some you can’t help, such as your age and family history, but there are plenty you can work on to lower your risk. These include: not smoking, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, exercising more, eating better and losing weight.
How can your GP help? We can run a heart health check, and blood tests, examining the risk factors and assessing your level of risk. Once we’ve worked on that, we can work with you to reduce any of the risk factors that can be influenced through medication or lifestyle changes.
