Heart Health Clinic
Your heart health is critical to your overall wellness. The good news is that up to 80% of premature heart disease and stroke can be prevented by finding out your risk factors and adjusting your lifestyle. Our pharmacists can help you with a risk assessment and provide tips on how to maintain a healthy weight, control your blood pressure and manage stress. People with certain health conditions—such as high blood pressure or diabetes—are often at higher risk.
Your pharmacist will assess your modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors, which include:
- Being overweight
- Being inactive
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- High stress level
- Excessive alcohol consumption
After a cholesterol test, your pharmacist will work with you to set up an action plan and review any non-prescription medications you may be taking to ensure they fit with your overall health plan.
