Healthy Numbers for a Healthy Heart [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 1 year ago

There are many numbers you have committed to memory—your phone number, your Social Security number, and your ATM PIN, for starters. But do you know what your heart numbers are? Three important numbers can give you a good indication of your risk for cardiovascular disease. Your blood pressure and your total cholesterol level can be measured at your cardiovascular treatment center in Ocala, and you can measure your third number on your own. Waist size is one of the biggest indicators of the risk for cardiovascular disease. A waist size of 35 inches or over for women increases the risk for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Check out this infographic from Ocala Health to learn more about your heart numbers and what they mean for your cardiovascular treatment. Please share with your friends and family to keep everyone’s hearts healthy.
