Every 40 seconds one American will have a heart attack. Nearly 1 in 4 people who have had a heart attack will have another one. As part of Heart Month, Bayer Aspirin has launched Hidden Risk to help everyone understand the risk factors for a heart attack and all the things you can do to help prevent a cardiovascular event.
You should work closely with your doctor to help manage risk factors such as smoking, weight and diet, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and stress. If you are recovering from a heart attack, making lifestyle changes, following a cardiac rehab program and taking medications, including Bayer Aspirin, as directed by your doctor, can help prevent another cardiovascular event.
