It’s important to see your doctor every year, especially as you get older, if you are overweight or sedentary, or if you have high-risk habits such as tobacco or excessive alcohol use. Building a relationship of trust with your doctor over time can help you adopt healthier habits, improve your heart numbers, and catch conditions early, when they are most treatable.

Dr. Daccarett's heart advice: “Stay active!”
