Preventing Cardiovascular Disease

Preventing Cardiovascular Disease Through Medications

As part of a cardiovascular disease prevention plan, medications may be needed in addition to lifestyle changes. Some medications decrease the workload on your heart and relieve your heart disease symptoms. Others decrease your chance of having a heart attack, stroke, or sudden death.
 
By controlling your risk factors with lifestyle changes and medications, you may prevent or slow down the development of cardiovascular disease.
 

Final Thoughts

Preventing cardiovascular disease involves knowing your risk factors and controlling them. In many situations, this can be done naturally, without the need for medications. However, it is important to keep in mind that there is no magic pill for dealing with this condition. It is about understanding cardiovascular disease and making good, healthy decisions.
 
Talk openly with your healthcare providers about cardiovascular disease prevention in your particular situation. They are in the best position to discuss your options. Together, you can decide on a plan that makes sense for you and helps you prevent the condition or limit its impact.
