Looking after your heart

This month the CCG is focussing on keeping your heart healthy. A balanced diet and regular physical activity can help you keep your weight, blood pressure and cholesterol at healthy levels, and improve your heart health.

A healthy lifestyle can also lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a risk factor for Coronary heart disease (CHD), and help prevent other health problems, such as kidney disease and some cancers.

Find out how a healthy lifestyle helps you look after your heart.
