We all want to kick off the new year in a healthy way! You may have heard that you need to “know your numbers,” which refers to key markers of heart health like blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, body mass index (BMI), and A1C, but what does that really mean?
Doctors test most of these numbers at annual check-ups, it’s important that you know your numbers and understand ways to keep them in a healthy range. By keeping those numbers within a healthy range, you can greatly improve your heart health and reduce your risk for chronic disease. For helpful information about keeping your health numbers in check, visit the American Heart Association's website: https://www.goredforwomen.org/en/know-your-risk/know-your-numbers
This month, we encourage you to be proactive about your health and participate in a biometric screening. You can find the full schedule and locations by clicking here.
