Screenings to Help Determine Risk

Some of these tests may include:

  • Advanced cholesterol screening
  • Advanced cardiac imaging
  • Other blood tests, including inflammatory markers
  • Coronary artery calcium CT (calcium scoring)
  • Chest X-ray
  • CT angiography
  • EKG
  • MRI
  • Stress testing
  • Heart and blood vessel ultrasound

Much of Your Heart Health is within Your Control

Improving heart health can be a challenge, but we’re here to help you each step of the way. One of the best ways to improve your heart health is through regular exercise. Starting small and keeping exercise enjoyable is a key to making it a permanent lifestyle change. Try taking a walk just down the street and then around the block. Make it fun and walk with a spouse, friend or neighbor so time together is a benefit of your exercise plan. Challenge yourself by counting your steps, taking the stairs or simply parking farther away than usual when you’re out in your community.

Heart healthy eating can also be challenging, but it may be easier than you think. Try increasing fruits and vegetables in flavorful new ways and even consider tracking your meals. Making small changes, like implementing a meatless Monday, can have a big impact on your heart health. Get inspired through our Living Better articles.
