DO YOU SUFFER FROM
CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, coronary artery disease is responsible for 1 in 4 deaths in the U.S. Certain risk factors, such as smoking, high cholesterol and diabetes, can cause plaque to build up inside the coronary arteries, preventing oxygen-rich blood from reaching the heart. If left untreated, the plaque can harden and rupture, creating blood clots that can limit blood flow and trigger angina, or chest discomfort. This pain typically starts in the chest and can move to other locations in the body, like the arms, jaw and back. When blood flow is cut off from the heart for an extended period of time, it can lead to heart attack, stroke and other serious health complications.
