What age should you start heart screenings?

Midday

February is American Heart Month. 

Jaime Montuoro, a Smith’s Pharmacist joined Midday with screenings all of us should have to keep our hearts healthy.

Regular screenings are important because they help catch potential problems early so you can make changes in your lifestyle, diet and exercise before heart disease develops.  And, most cardiovascular screening tests should begin at age 20.  The frequency after that depends on your results.

Montuoro recommends having regular blood pressure and cholesterol and blood glucose screenings.

Nearly every Smith’s pharmacy is offering FREE cholesterol screenings by appointment.
