How healthy is your heart?

We're supporting Public Health England’s (PHE) latest One You campaign, Heart Age, to raise awareness of the importance of understanding heart health – and to inspire people whose weight might be impacting on their heart health to get support to make changes.

Losing weight can help improve your heart health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. It can also help reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which are both associated with increased risk of heart problems. Many members who already have heart disease find they’re able to reduce their medication after losing weight with Slimming World.

The quick and easy online Heart Age Test tells you how old your heart could be in comparison to your actual age, and helps you to find out what more you can do to lower your heart age and improve your life.

Before Dave Lancaster joined Slimming World in 2016, he weighed more than 34st and had a heart age of a 55-year-old – he was just 43. Since then, thanks to making changes to his diet and activity levels, Dave has lost more than 20st and no longer needs to take any medication. His doctor said his blood pressure is in the range of a man 20 years younger. Now 45, Dave’s heart age is 46 – a drop of nine years. Read Dave’s story here.
