2. Lifestyle Factors

Perhaps the most common cause of pulmonary embolisms is unhealthy lifestyle choices. A poor diet and a lack of exercise are more likely to lead to obesity. The wrong diet will also increase the likelihood of clots developing in the cardiovascular system. Other lifestyle choices, such as smoking, can also increase the risk of a pulmonary embolism.

This makes it a good idea to try and live as healthily as you can. You don’t necessarily have to adhere to a strict regime. A balanced diet of fresh food and a reasonable amount of activity can go a very long way. This will help keep you safe from other serious health conditions as well as a pulmonary embolism.
