Lifestyle can play a large role in determining risk for developing disease. We know that lifestyle factors, such as smoking, increased alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity and obesity contribute to increased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. We also know that it is possible to reverse the risk of developing disease by reducing these risk factors.
At Kotara Family Practice, we are passionate about preventative health – helping you to recognise your risk factors and helping you put strategies in place to improve your health. We want to help you quit smoking, drink less, move more and lose weight. Our doctors and nurses can advise you on all aspects of lifestyle health and help you put a healthy lifestyle plan into action.
