Men are more likely to have heart disease than women. Sadly, men are less likely to visit the doctor for annual examination and preventive services than women. Heart disease describes a wide range of conditions that affect your heart. You may also hear it being described as cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular Disease generally refers to conditions that involve your blocked or narrowed blood vessels. These issues can lead you to have a heart attack, angina or a stroke.
One of the best ways to prevent heart disease is to keep up to date on your regular medical checkups. Early detection and treatment of heart related issues could help you enjoy a lifetime of better heart health. In addition to regular checkups, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle that promotes heart health.
