4myheart® is a personalized care program to help improve and maintain heart health. It is suggested based on your individual advanced cardiovascular test results. Once your doctor enrolls you in the program, you will have access to resources available on the 4myheart website, as well as a clinical educator who can review your test results and connect you to a variety of wellness programs available from Cleveland Clinic Wellness.
Along with your doctor's treatment plan, the 4myheart program can help you reach your personal goals such as:
Making healthy food choices
Staying active and social
Understanding your medicine
Managing your stress
Our 4myheart program is designed to help you understand heart health and assist you in leading a healthy lifestyle. It can help you:
- Learn about your tests and what the results mean
- Follow the treatment plan prescribed to you by your doctor
- Set lifestyle goals to help improve your heart health
The benefits for diabetics
Because a strong link exists between heart disease and other chronic conditions, the 4myheart program also helps those with diabetes.
The American Heart Association considers diabetes to be 1 of 7 major controllable risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
In the U.S., diabetes is a common problem. It occurs because of high blood sugar levels, either because there is not enough insulin or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to it.
Diabetes is a chronic condition, which means it will not go away once you have it. If left untreated, it can cause serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and lower limb amputation. It’s better to work at preventing diabetes than to have to treat it.
