Heart Disease Prevention

The root cause of most cases of heart disease, stroke, transient ischaemic attack and peripheral vascular disease is a build up of atheroma- a fatty deposit within the inside lining of arteries. Lifestyle factors that reduce the risk of forming atheroma and developing cardiovascular diseases include: not smoking, chosing healthy foods, a low salt intake, regular physical activity, keeping your weight down, keeping your waist size down and drinking alcohol in moderation. your blood pressure and cholesterol level are also important.

People aged over 40-75 should have a cardiovascular risk assessment every 5 years (available at Kingsbury Health and Wellbeing). If you have a high risk of developing cardiovascular diease treatment to reduce your blood pressure or reduce your cholesterol may be advised. A daily low dose of aspirin is alos commonly advised for people who already have cardiovascular disease.
