HER_mar14

Keep your ticker in tip-top shape; get your cholesterol screened regularly. High blood cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease and stroke, and it often has no symptoms. Be smart with your heart health by staying informed about the difference between “good” and “bad” cholesterol, and by understanding the risk factors for high cholesterol.

This issue of Health e-Report® also includes cold weather exercise tips, information about colon cancer risk factors, guidance in choosing over the counter acne medications, and money and banking tips for tax season.

GEHA health plan members are invited to learn more about our free Health Advice Line and Health Information Library.

This month’s healthy recipes are: Crunchy Hawaiian chicken wrap, gluten-free mango cake bites, and kale frittata with tomato and basil
