Heart Disease for Men

Just being male increases your risk for heart disease. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to decrease other risk factors. Knowing what your risk factors are and doing your best to limit them can significantly lower your chance for heart disease.

Starting or re-starting an active routine, eating better, and quitting smoking are among some of the changes you can make. Learning how to manage your stress levels will also help prevent heart disease. These changes are especially important if you have other risk factors for heart disease, such as family history.
