The NHS: What’s your heart age?

Public Health England  (PHE) has spearheaded a campaign today for adults to know their Heart Age. The test provides an immediate estimation of their ‘heart age’ and if someone’s heart age is higher than their actual age, they are at an increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke. As part of the test results, it also gives suggestions on lifestyle changes to help people reduce their heart age such as losing weight, quitting smoking, exercising regularly and cutting back on alcohol.

PHE’s Heart Age campaign will run until 30th September. Adults are encouraged to search ‘heart age’ to take the free online test.

 

We’re being asked to spread the word about this test, ow you can do the same!
