Learn Your Risk Factors for Heart Disease

As a first step to preventing heart disease, the American Heart Association urges all adults to know their risk factors for heart disease, measured by:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Lipoprotein Test-includes Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL, HDL, VLDL
  • Fasting Blood Glucose(Sugar)Test
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Waist Circumference

KishHealth System has two programs to help you know and understand your numbers: Know Your Numbers and HeartWise. Heart disease, Type II diabetes and other health issues can be predicted using this information.
