Click for Full Details: www.NIHSeniorHealth.govNIHSeniorHealth now offers information about the prevention, detection, and treatment of heart failure. Designed especially for seniors, NIHSeniorHealth is a joint effort of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM), which are part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
?There are a number of things you can do to reduce the risk of heart disease and heart failure,? says Elizabeth G Nabel, MD, director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), which developed the content for the heart failure topic on the NIHSeniorHealth website. ?For example, it is important to keep your cholesterol and blood pressure levels healthy, keep your diabetes in check, lose weight if you are overweight, eat right, don?t smoke, and get regular physical activity.?
NIHSeniorHealth, which is based on the latest research on cognition and aging, features short, easy-to-read segments of information that can be accessed in a variety of formats, including large-print type sizes, open-captioned videos, and even an audio version. Additional topics coming soon to the site include heart attack, clinical trials, and falls and fractures. The site links to MedlinePlus, NLM?s more detailed site for consumer health information.
