Why Don’t People Know They’re at Risk
The symptoms are hard to spot
Risk factors such as hypertension, high cholesterol and atherosclerosis can go undetected for years, only becoming noticeable once they’ve become quite severe.
People don’t visit their doctor enough
Whether it’s because they’re pressed for time, uncomfortable discussing their symptoms, worried about being judged, or simply afraid of the unknown, people find all sorts of reasons to avoid seeing a doctor.
It’s scary learning about health issues
It’s normal to feel afraid, overwhelmed or even hopeless when you believe you might be facing a serious health issue. But delaying your visit will only make matters worse. Early detection is key when it comes to treating heart disease—the earlier, the better.
