Wake Up Tri-Counties Heart Health Month with Award-Winning OSF Dietitian Sara Umphleet


February is National Heart Health Month and one thing that has a significant effect on your heart health is your diet. Too much fat or sugar can have a detrimental effect on your heart health, especially if you have a history of heart issues in your family. Sara Umphleet from OSF Saint Luke Medical Center, along with Samantha Rux, joined Wake Up Tri-Counties on Monday, February 12th to talk about Diet and Heart Health. Sara says there are healthy levels of fat and sugar and they can vary between men and woman. She also says to watch out for hidden extra sugar in items you might not think would have so much extra sugar.
