Steps to a Healthy Heart

It’s common to think that your fate is sealed if heart disease runs in your family or you have risk factors like diabetes, obesity, or smoking. But you can work toward reducing your risk by trying one of the following heart-healthy tips each day for a month.

Heart Rhythm

Did you know? There are conditions that can cause the heart to change from its normal pattern. These changes may cause the heart to pump too fast, too slowly, or erratically.

When organs don’t receive enough blood, they can’t function properly and may shut down or become damaged.
