High Blood Pressure & Other Heart Disease Risk Factors
There are many risk factors that can impact the health of your heart and lead to other, potentially life-threatening complications.
The heart is responsible for delivering blood, with its oxygen, nutrients and immune defense, to every other organ and cell throughout your body. Any impediments to its ability to preform that function can result in gradual or immediate health concerns. If left undiagnosed or untreated, these risk factors contribute to the leading cause of death in the U.S.
