The following are some of the steps that can be taken to ensure the possibility of a heart disease condition from occurring:
The most obvious and often disregarded rule would be to not smoke as this is not only a bad habit to form it is also a deadly one. Records have shown that those who have made the conscious effort to stop smoking have been able to bring down and even eliminate their chances of suffering from heart diseases.
Keeping the cholesterol levels low and manageable is also another important exercise to consider as the high blood cholesterol is a condition that increases the risks of developing coronary heart disease.
This is caused by the narrowing of the arteries thus inhibiting the flow of blood to the heart. Ideally the cholesterol levels should be below 200mg/dl; LDL cholesterol below 130mg/dl and HLD above 35mg/dl.
