As our country's number one killer, cardiovascular disease has touched the life of nearly every American. While we can't control certain genetic risk factors, all of us can take better control of our health during American Heart Month in February. High cholesterol is a major cause of cardiovascular disease. One in three adults have borderline or high cholesterol, and men over 50 and post-menopausal women are at a greater risk. Even if you eat right and have an active lifestyle, you might have elevated levels of cholesterol and other cardiovascular disease risk factors due to your genetics.

Today, we can also use new technologies to monitor the success of our efforts to lower our risks for heart disease. CardioChek
