AAA Prevention: Key ways to prevent AAA are to increase your general health. This includes stopping smoking, controlling diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, lowering your cholesterol and eating less salt. The best treatments for an AAA come from early diagnosis with regular check ups. If found early, they can be watched until something has to be done.
