Recently the American Heart Association started a campaign called, “Know Your Numbers”. According to the AHA, knowing a few key numbers will help us figure out if we are developing risk factors that are associated with diseases like type 2 diabetes and some cardiovascular diseases. A few of those key numbers include blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and body weight. A simple concept – know your numbers, know your health.
