Heart disease is one of the major diseases affecting Australian adults. At Adelaide Cardiology we believe that lifestyle changes are just as important as medication. They go hand in hand. One without the other is far less effective at preventing new problems from occurring. After all, what we want and what you want are the same – a healthy, enjoyable life with as few trips to the doctor or to hospital as possible. While we can prescribe medications to help manage your heart disease, in the end, it's up to you to change the negative lifestyle factors which make your disease worse. So what are the basic lifestyle aims?
A healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of further problems.
