Heart disease kills an estimated 630,000 Americans each year and is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, DiabetesAmerica is proudly participating in American Heart Month.

In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to a heart attack. You can greatly reduce your risk for CAD through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medication.

Do you know your risk of having a heart attack?  Use this risk assessment tool to learn more.

For more information on heart disease and prevention, please visit the American Heart Association’s website.
