Prevention is better than cure.

馃挃 "Prevention is better than cure", a well-known and very current phrase in cardiovascular medicine.

Atherosclerotic disease responsible for arterial blockages that lead to heart attacks and strokes (or CVD), among others, develops silently over decades starting at an early age. Known risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar (diabetes) do not produce symptoms until very late in life after causing significant damage.

We call it primordial prevention, preventing before the disease appears. What are the goals? What should I do? Here are the details:
- LDL cholesterol less than 70 mg/dL 馃.
- Blood pressure less than 120/80 mmHg.
- Body mass index less than 25.
- Physical activity totaling more than 150 minutes per week 馃弮鈥嶁檪锔忦煆冣嶁檧锔.
- Eating healthily 馃 (for example, DASH diet) and not smoking.

馃挕 Prevention is a medium and long-term investment that requires consistency in goals and understanding of its relevance. This is highly rewarded with more years of life and better quality of life by avoiding serious cardiovascular events. Events that lead to hospitalizations, interventions (many of them very costly), and death.

It is important to consult your cardiologist for a detailed clinical evaluation馃┖ and identify what is happening.
