Know Your Numbers!
According to American Heart Association, one of the keys to preventing heart disease and stroke is managing risk factors such as high blood pressure, high total cholesterol and high blood glucose.
The best way to assess your risk is through regular health screenings. Blood pressure is one of the simplest yet most important screenings because high blood pressure often has no symptoms and likely will not be detected without being measured.
