Preventing Vascular Disease
The best way to prevent vascular disease is to live a “heart healthy”
lifestyle – don’t smoke; eat nutritious, low fat foods; exercise;
control risk factors and maintain a healthy weight.
Life style changes. The single most effective steps you can take to prevent
vascular disease are to quit smoking and control high blood pressure,
high cholesterol, diabetes and other factors that contribute to vascular
disease. Regular exercise, eating a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy
weight also are important.
