Interestingly, both baldness and heart disease risk are genetic.
Whether you are just beginning to see thinning hair or are well on your way to becoming a cue ball, there are some things you can do to remain informed about the potential onset of CHD. Just because you’re balding doesn’t mean conclusively that you’re at risk. However, at the very least, baldness means you should ask your doctor about what, if any, heart disease risk factors you may have.
In addition, strive to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle to lower your risk of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure, including exercising, eating a well-balanced diet and stressing less (and quitting smoking, of course).
