Cardiovascular disease is an umbrella term that includes heart, stroke and blood vessel diseases, and is one of Australia’s largest health problems. It accounts for one in four of all deaths, claiming the life of one person every 13 minutes.

While these statistics are alarming, advances in medical science have led to early detection and new treatments, which allow many of us to manage this chronic condition.

While your genetics can impact your cardiovascular health, there are also a number of lifestyle facts that can have a detrimental impact.  These include poor diet, smoking, high total cholesterol, high blood pressure (hypertension), management of diabetes, being physically inactive, being overweight or obese and management of depression.
