  Health Tip: Coping With Hardening of the Arteries
Ways to get support

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Hardening and narrowing of the arteries -- medically called atherosclerosis -- may require lifestyle changes to protect yourself from heart attack.

Here's how to find support, courtesy of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute:

  • Tell your doctor if you feel depressed, anxious or stressed. If necessary, talk with a mental health professional.
  • Reach out to your local hospital or health department for support and additional information.
  • Discuss needed lifestyle changes with family and friends.
  • Ask loved ones to help you make these changes.
