Millions of adults have vascular conditions that affect blood circulation in their limbs, but many don’t recognize the symptoms until it’s too late. Often mistaken for tired legs and sore muscles, vascular disease can lead to serious consequences like heart attack or stroke if left untreated.
Knowing if you are at risk for vascular disease is the first step toward preventing potentially fatal complications in the future.
Assessing Your Risk
This simple quiz will help you understand your risk of vascular disease.
1. Do you or an immediate family member have diabetes or heart disease?
2. Do you have high blood pressure (more than 140/90)?
3. Are you a smoker?
4. Is your body mass index (BMI) greater than 30?
5. Are you inactive?
The more times you answered “yes,” the greater your risk for experiencing a life-threatening medical event like a heart attack or stroke. It’s important to talk to your doctor about how you can improve your health and wellness.
Preventive Care Cardiovascular Disease Screening
Sharp Grossmont Hospital is pleased to offer a comprehensive evaluation of your risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The screening is a series of tests that can provide early detection of serious cardiovascular conditions that will take less than two hours of your time.
