Lifestyle & Management

You can lessen your risk for developing an aneurysm by making sensible lifestyle changes, including:

  • Quitting smoking or using tobacco products
  • Losing weight, if you need to
  • Lowering cholesterol and fat in your diet
  • Reducing the amount of alcohol you drink
  • Getting screened with an ultrasound, if appropriate for your age and gender
Talk with your healthcare provider about the best type and amount of physical activity for you, based on the type of aneurysm you have.
