Eat Better to Feel Better

Help reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke by eating more heart-healthy foods.

Specific dietary patterns and nutrient intake can play a major role in cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment through effects on modifiable risk factors such as cholesterol levels.

The American Heart Association recommends that all adults age 20 or older have their cholesterol and other traditional risk factors checked every four to six years, and work with their healthcare providers to determine their risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Total cholesterol is a measure of the total amount of cholesterol in your blood, including low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.

  • LDL (bad) cholesterol: the main source of cholesterol buildup and blockage in the arteries

  • Triglycerides: another form of fat in your blood that can raise your risk for heart disease
