Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is one of the most underlying health problems throughout the United States. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease may include age, poor diet, the lack of exercise, and smoking. Although there are a variety of risk factors that can influence patient progression of cardiovascular disease, there are many lifestyle changes that can be done in order to alleviate the prognosis. By ensuring proper lifestyle changes such as healthier diet, daily exercise, smoking cessation, and regular physician checkups, patients are able to better alleviate the symptoms associated with cardiovascular disease.
