A healthy heart is a strong muscular pump and is a little larger than the size of your fist. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. The average heart beats about 100,000 times each day and pumps about 7,200 liters (1900 gallons) of blood. Cardiovascular disease (heart disease) can result when there is a problem with the way the heart or blood vessels function, such as with heart attack and stroke. Risk factors that could lead to heart disease include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and many others. Managing these risk factors can help lower your risk for heart disease. Our physicians and dietitian can help you manage your risk factors and gain control of your health!
