Did you know?

♥ More people die in Ireland every year from cardiovascular disease than any other disease. It accounts for 36% of all deaths and is a major cause of disability, representing a huge burden on our healthcare system.

♥ Heart Disease develops in silence, over many years and is usually very advanced by the time people experience any symptoms.

♥ People die suddenly from heart disease and very often before medical care is sought. However…… Heart Disease is Preventable! Up to 80% of the incidence of Heart Disease can be prevented through the modification of risk factors such as cholesterol, blood pressure and smoking.

This section aims to give you information on how to keep your heart healthy and thus reduce your risk of developing heart disease.
