Risk Factors

Heart disease is usually preventable, however, but if you have one or more of these risk factors, the likelihood of developing heart disease increases if you have one or more of these risk factors:

  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Overweight or obesity
  • Abdominal fat (“spare tire”)
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Inactivity
  • Stress or depression
  • Alcohol intake of more than 1 daily drink for women, more than 2 drinks daily for men

Personalized Screenings

In order to determine your level of risk, the nurse coordinator can schedule a personalized screening including height, weight, body mass index, waist circumference, blood pressure measurement, and blood cholesterol panel and glucose.

Those results, along with your personal health profile will guide the nurse coordinator in providing individualized and goal-oriented information to manage risk factors.

Please call Susan Butler, RN, MSN at 336-713-4427 for details about personalized screenings.
