I am a 39 year old athletic male . I know high blood pressure is a major warning sign(mine is normal). I just was wondering other things I can pay special attention to.
Cardiologist: Dr. David, Doctor replied 7 months ago

I see

at age 39, your risks for stroke would be low

that is good you are able to exercise regularly

lowering LDL and raising your HDL can help

eating more fruits and vegetables can help

avoiding alcohol and weight gain can help as well.
