Does Family History Affect Your Risk of Developing Heart Disease? | CARE Hospitals

If one of your immediate family members, especially a first-degree relative, underwent heart surgery before the age of 55, or has had a heart attack, a stroke, or was diagnosed with heart disease before the age of 65, this may indicate a family history of premature heart disease, says Dr. V. Vinoth Kumar, Senior Consultant Interventional Cardiologist. He continues to say that this might suggest your chances of developing the same condition are higher than usual. Every year, World Heart Day is celebrated on the 29th of September. This day was first announced by the World Heart Federation to make people around the world aware of cardiovascular diseases and heart health. With the global campaign for World Health Day, we should aim to bring people together in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and encourage them to follow heart-healthy practices. Your heart is an important part of your body. This Heart Day, choose to take care of your heart by following the keys to a heart healthy diet as given in the above video! #CAREHospitals #listentoyourheart #WorldHeartDay #HeartHealthforAll #Heart #cardiovascularhealth To know more visit our website: https://www.carehospitals.com/world-heart-day/2022
