Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for men and women worldwide. Many disorders fall into the broad category of cardiovascular disease, the most important being arteriosclerosis, angina, and myocardial infarction. Knowledge of genetic predisposition, diet, laboratory findings, and lifestyle are all critical factors that determine both the assessment of the risk of cardiovascular disease and their treatment. Prevention of cardiovascular diseases refers to the coordinated effort to minimize the factors that may lead to the onset of the disease. Early recognition of underlying imbalances and early markers can significantly affect the disease, thus preventing its progression.
