CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE PREVENTION
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) development is closely related to lifestyle characteristics and associated risk factors.
There is an overwhelming scientific evidence that lifestyle modifications and reduction of risk factors can slow the development of CVD both before and after the occurrence of a CV event.
Primary CVD prevention is aimed at the healthy population, individuals who have several CV risk factors or 1 CV risk factor at a very high level, and individuals whose risk for a CV event is high. Secondary CVD prevention is aimed at individuals with confirmed CVD.
