Day 20: Know Your Genes

What is more important than family? Certainly it is who we are and what we are at risk for. Your family predetermines your genetic makeup.

We have to keep in mind the risks for cardiovascular disease:
  • Early heart attacks or deaths in first degree relatives
  • Sudden death in young family members
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
Keep these in mind when you have symptoms that you suspect are out of "normal".

Discuss these symptoms with your family physician as quickly as possible if any.
