If you are over 50 years old, get your numbers checked even if you are healthy. This will give you a good indication of any lifestyle or dietary changes you may need to make. Luckily, it’s never too late to start looking after the heart, and in certain cases even repair damage. Of course, making changes to your behaviour, lifestyle and eating habits isn’t easy but it can make a huge difference.
