WPG Health Update: Learn Your Heart Disease Risk
Most of us use calculators for everyday math problems, but The American Heart Association and The Mayo Clinic have created a heart disease risk calculator that can give us an a percentage of how likely we are to get cardiovascular disease. It only takes a few minutes and it is a great way to be aware of our risks factors and what we can do about them.
After answering the questions, the Mayo clinic heart disease risk calculator tells us what we are doing well and what we can improve to live a better and healthier life. It takes into account our physical activity,diet and other factors. It certainly does not replace medical advice but it is a good place to start. During this heart month, it is a great time for us to show our heart some love. Check out the risk calculator and learn more about living a healthier life.
