The AHA has defined ideal cardiovascular health based on seven risk factors (Life's Simple 7) that people can improve through lifestyle changes. They are: 1. Blood Pressure 2. Cholesterol 3. Blood Sugar/Glucose 4. Physical Activity 5. Diet 6. Weight 7. Smoking Status
High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. High blood pressure (also known as hypertension) is when your blood pressure, the force of blood flowing through your blood vessels, is consistently too high.
Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose (or blood sugar) that our bodies use for energy. Over time, high levels of blood sugar can damage your heart, kidneys, eyes and nerves.
Tips to be more active: *Be strong: Include muscle-strengthening activity (like resistance or weight training) at least twice a week. *Add intensity: Increase time, distance, amount or effort for more benefits. *Sit less: Get up and move throughout the day.
A healthy diet is one of your best weapons for fighting heart disease. When you eat a heart-healthy diet, you improve your chances for feeling good and staying healthy – for life.
“When you maintain proper weight, you reduce the burden on your heart, lungs, blood vessels and skeleton,” said Dr. Anderson. “You give yourself the gift of active living, you lower your blood pressure and you help yourself feel better, too.”
