Know Your Numbers
A CardioTabs' Customer Story
Dave had a heart attack when he was only 42 years old and triple bypass surgery at 51. He is now a 64 year-old grandfather of three with a fourth on the way. He recently retired and is now pursuing his lifelong dream: he’s a full-time college student getting the teaching degree he always wanted. Dave will celebrate his 36th Father’s Day this weekend and he looks forward to many more.
Dave regularly tracks his own blood pressure and keeps track of his weight, but there are some other important numbers for Dave (and all of us) to know. Becky Captain, Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Lipid Specialist and manager of the CardioWellness Clinic, shares Heart-Healthy Numbers to Know for Men’s Health Month.
Don’t know your numbers? If you haven’t had an annual physical this year, it’s time to schedule one. If you have, your physician’s office should have your numbers for you.
