Get a heart health check up

Every year take time to have your health checked by your GP! Try to do this at the same time every year. Combine your heart health check along with a regular PAP smear test, breast examination and as you get older consider other follow-ups such as a bone density scan.

If you are diabetic, have high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol, it is very important to have an understanding about your condition. You can keep it under control by:

Adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Visiting your GP regularly and get to know your numbers.

Following the management protocol suggested by your doctor.
