Active RetireesTM | 33 HEALTH A GP is the first port of call for all health and medical matters. The local doctor can keep an eye on how you’re doing by checking things like your cholesterol, blood pressure and weight. You should have a thorough check-up with your GP at least once a year, and more often if you have a history of heart disease, high cholesterol or blood pressure. Your GP can also help you quit smoking and provide referrals to specialists if necessary. The Heart Foundation is a terrific source of information on heart health, with a number of professionals available to offer support, while a dietitian can help you look after your heart through your diet. If you haven’t exercised in a while, have never exercised or have an injury or health condition, an exercise physiologist may be able to help you on your way. •• MORE INFO Heart Foundation The Heart Foundation can provide information and advice to help improve heart health.
