Lifestyle Changes

Prevention and preventative care are key in helping to reduce your risk of developing DVT. You can take action by making small lifestyle changes that address factors that may put you at greater risk.

Staying active through exercise, even if it's just simple low-impact movements, may help you reduce your risks by encouraging circulation and can help you lose weight.

It is also important to be conscious of your diet and eat heart healthy foods that help you maintain or improve your cholesterol levels.

Remember staying active and maintaining a healthy diet are just two ways that you can help manage your risk. For more ways to take action, visit DVT Prevention & Risk Management.
