Despite the fact that almost 80% of premature heart disease and stroke can be prevented through healthy behaviors,: heart disease is the leading cause of death among women and the second leading cause of death among men in Canada.

Research also shows that nine in ten Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
Medicine Hat London Drugs pharmacists are hoping to boost public awareness of the risk factors and are encouraging Medicine Hat residents to take preventative action by attending their Healthy Heart Clinic on Wednesday, March 22 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Many Canadians miss the signs of heart disease that often precede a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. Prevention ultimately starts with knowing your risks. Often there are no symptoms until the underlying disease has progressed, which is what makes routine screening essential.
London Drugs’ Healthy Heart Clinics involve a one-on-one 45 minute screening and evaluation with a Patient Care Pharmacist. They take a measurement of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, random glucose and blood pressure and assess risk factors such as family history, age, level of exercise, diet, smoking history and high blood pressure. Next they focus on minimizing these risks. This might include a discussion of changes to diet, fitness routines or lifestyle. The appointment is collaborative and customized for each patient and pharmacists can contact physicians to recommend further medical intervention or changes to medication.
When people become aware of their risk factors, especially those that are within their power to control, many become motivated to make positive changes. Habits like eating healthy, being active and living smoke-free, have a big impact on health.
