Knowing your numbers is important to living long and healthy. Did you know that every 40 seconds an American has a heart attack and every 40 seconds an American has a stroke! Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the number one killer in the US! Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.
That’s approximately one woman every minute! Having this screening through the Wadley Scan is a wonderful opportunity to know more about your personal risks associated with CVD. The World Health Organization says that “Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioral risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol using population-wide strategies. People with cardiovascular disease are at high cardiovascular risk (due to the presence of one or more risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia or already
established disease) need early detection and management using counseling and medicines, as appropriate.
American Heart Association recommends regular screenings to detect risk factors in their earliest stages. We hope that you will make your screenings an annual process to check for any changes that may occur.
