JULY E-NEWSLETTER | STAYING ACTIVE TO PREVENT BLOOD CLOTS

Blood clots can affect people of all ages, but they become increasingly common as people age, particularly among people who are 55 years old or older. In addition, a sedentary lifestyle, which can go hand-in-hand with increased age, also increases blood clot risks. One of the things you can do to help prevent blood clots is make regular exercise a part of your routine, especially as you age. No matter what you choose to do, staying active helps reduce your risk for life-threatening blood clots. Learn more about how to prevent blood clots here: Prevent Blood Clots
