An online tool to help combat heart disease has been launched
The tool called 'Know Your Numbers' calculates a person's risk of heart disease or strokes based on lifestyle factors, blood pressure and cholesterol ratio.
It is available at www.knowyournumbers.co.nz.
The foundation said it hoped the website would increase people's knowledge about heart disease and help combat high rates of the disease.
After calculating the person's risk of heart disease the website provides the person with a six week, individually tailored heart plan.
