Heart Health Checks and Why You Need Them

Heart health checks and cholesterol testing are important for assessing and monitoring the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, which is a leading cause of death globally. Regular testing can help detect high cholesterol levels and other risk factors, such as high blood pressure, smoking, and unhealthy diet, and family history early on. This allows individuals to make necessary lifestyle changes, take medication if prescribed, and receive early treatment, reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other serious health conditions long term.

Regular heart health checks and cholesterol testing are critical for maintaining good heart health and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Everyone from age 30 can book these appointments. Book 20 mins with your Dr. They will check your Blood pressure, weight, BMI, cholesterol levels, cardiograph (if indicated) and do your cardiovascular risks for the next 5 years
