Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. 

If you experience a combination of any of these symptoms, it’s important you or your caregiver calls a health professional to get the help you need.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen ankles and legs
  • Dizziness/lightheadedness
  • Aching in shoulder and chest
  • Snoring and sleep problems
  • Irregular Heartbeat

A healthy diet and regular exercise are the main components in protecting against heart disease.
