Learn about your heart and blood circulation

It's not always easy to tell if you're having problems with blood vessels in your heart and your body. You can't feel plaque building up in your arteries. That's a scary thought for anyone who is concerned about high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Plaque buildup can have long-term effects on your heart and blood flow. And it doesn't just affect your heart. Plaque buildup can happen in your leg arteries too. Our topics can help you see what tests, lifestyle changes, and treatments are right for you.

Health Tips

Asthma is a treatable, reversible condition that affects more than 25 million people in the United States.
