Don't Become A Statistic.
It's no secret that African-Americans suffer disproportionately from heart disease and hypertension. More than 35% of black adults may have high blood pressure, and those who suffer heart attacks are more likely to die as a result. The good news is, you can reduce your risk.
Written exclusively by and for black Americans, the Black Health Library Guide to Heart Disease and Hypertension explains why we are at particular risk, and offers the most up-to-date information on preventing and surviving these dangerous conditions. Here's just some of what you'll learn.
- Recognizing the warning signs of heart disease or a heart attack
- Important things to ask your doctor
- New advances in diagnosis and treatment
- Diet and exercise programs that can reduce your chances of stroke and heart attack
- Recovering from a heart attack
Additionally, the book includes a self-administered test to gauge your risks, instructive diagrams, table and charts, and a complete glossary of terms.
