It’s February and our thoughts are turning to hearts and love and all the Valentine’s Day things. But did you know February is actually American Heart Month? This month is a great time to focus on heart health, learn about your real heart and how to keep it going strong.
Heart health is a subject that’s very important to me, so today, I wanted to talk to you about living a healthy, active lifestyle that I think helps to mitigate the risk of health problems. Here are my tips on why you should talk to your doctor about living a heart healthy lifestyle!
Talk to your doctor about your heart health
If you haven’t spoken to your doctor about what you can do to learn about your heart health or to talk about if implementing low dose aspirin into your heart health routine is a good option for you, if you’ve had a prior heart attack, February and American Heart Month is a great time to make that appointment. Talk to your doctor about your lifestyle and your habits and ask any questions you might have about whether St. Joseph’s Low Dose Aspirin is a good choice for you to help lower your risk of recurrent heart attack or stroke.
Women now suffer from heart disease essentially at the same rate as men. As much as I like to think a heart attack is something that could “never happen to me” I knew it was time to talk to my doctor about my heart health. Last year, I had an honest conversation with my doctor – about family history, preventing cardiovascular disease, and how I could live a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Talking about risk factors and what the next step in my healthcare might look like when I hit that next milestone birthday made me feel a lot better and more in control of my health choices. If you have those little nagging feelings in the back of your mind or things don’t feel quite right, make that appointment. You will feel better.
Your doctor can advise you on the right amount of exercise for you, a heart healthy diet, and, of course, let you know if you are a candidate for low dose aspirin if you’ve suffered from a heart attack or clot-related stroke in the past.
What is the purpose of a low dose aspirin regimen?
A regular low dose aspirin regimen with St. Joseph’s Low Dose Aspirin taken regularly may help to reduce risk of recurrent (second) heart attack or ischemic (clot-related) stroke. Aspirin helps to prevent blood clots from forming, therefore helping to prevent a recurrent heart attack or stroke.
It’s important to talk to your doctor before starting or changing a low dose aspirin regimen. While there are many benefits to low dose aspirin therapy, it’s not right for everyone.
