Things to Remember

  • Smokers die up to four times more often than non-smokers from a ruptured aneurysm.

  • Eat a healthy diet to avoid cholesterol buildup in the arteries.
  • Regular physical exams can decrease the risk for aneurysms and other health problems.
  • Commit to daily exercise to get your heart pumping and keep blood vessels open and working. Be sure to consult your doctor before beginning a new exercise program.
