Heart Disease Resources

Heart disease describes conditions related to plaque building up in the walls of the arteries.

Other conditions include arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythms), heart failure, and heart valve problems.

What is your risk?

Heart disease can happen to anyone, including children. You can develop heart disease over time due to poor habits such as smoking or eating an unhealthy diet. Having high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes can also increase your risk.

How to treat heart disease?

Talk to your doctor about safely reducing your risks and setting goals for a healthier heart. Your doctor may also prescribe medication.
