1 in every 12 Canadians is living with heart disease1

Men are twice as likely to suffer a heart attack than women 2

Women usually get their first diagnosis of heart disease at age 65 to 74, Men at age 55 to 64 2

Risk factors for heart disease include:

  • Age. Heart disease risk increases with age. This is especially so for men over the age of 45, women over the age of 55 and/or women who have gone through menopause
  • Family history. If anyone in your immediate family (siblings or parents) has had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or a heart attack, your risk of heart disease is higher
  • Build. People whose bodies are shaped more like apples, with fat accumulating at the waistline or higher, have a higher risk of heart disease

What can be done to reduce the risk of heart disease

  • Early detection and treatment. Speak with your doctor or healthcare professional about your risk factors for heart disease.
  • Reduce or quit smoking. This not only improves your chances of escaping heart disease, but many other health problems.
  • Consume alcohol in moderation. Drinking too much places you at risk for multiple health issues, including heart disease.
  • Exercise. You don’t need to run a marathon but stay active. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity every day.
  • Eat healthy. Canada’s Food Guide is a great place to start. In general stick to fresh, unprocessed foods.
  • Stay at a healthy weight. Achieve and maintain a weight that is healthy for you by adjusting your diet and staying active.
  • Manage stress. Learn how to manage your stress, and cope with problems in healthy ways.
