Monitor Your Cholesterol
Share |
Elevated blood levels of lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, are associated with angina and coronary heart disease. Having a low HDL cholesterol, which is the "good" or protective cholesterol, is a risk factor for another heart event. Getting your lipid levels to a goal level is one very clear way to decrease this likelihood. Make sure your doctor has obtained an accurate fasting lipid blood test and discussed the results with you. All women who have had a heart attack need to make sure that their lipid levels are at goal, either through dietary changes or prescription medicines.
