Heart Check Up

Heart Check Up

GOLDEN LIFE AMERICAN HOSPITAL

During a heart health checkup, your doctor will talk to you about how you’re feeling and offer you screening tests to assess your cardiovascular health and risk factors. Your cardiovascular system includes your heart and blood vessels.

As part of the checkup, they’ll look for any signs of heart disease and consider your risk for developing heart disease in the future. For example, risk factors include:

  • high blood pressure
  • high blood cholesterol
  • high blood sugar
  • overweight and obesity
  • certain lifestyle habits, like smoking and alcohol use

Some heart health screening tests should begin as early as age 20, recommends the American Heart Association (AHA).
