David Chocarro began the new year by running a 5K during the DisneyWorld Marathon. He joined Cigna for the second time in an effort to help raise awareness about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which includes checking 4 important numbers.
Now that the new year started, it’s a great time to start thinking about prevention. “Latinos are strong, very hard working, and we often forget about prevention and about our health wellness,” says Chocarro.
The actor says that right now is the perfect time to schedule your annual checkup and make sure that you know your 4 numbers for cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, and body mass index.
“When you keep these four numbers healthy, you help prevent serious diseases,” he says. Knowing these numbers help prevent diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and even some cancers, which is why it’s so important to talk to your doctor who can help guide you on how to maintain these numbers healthy.
