Some forms of bundle branch block can't be prevented. However, keeping your heart healthy generally helps prevent conditions that increase your risk of bundle branch block, such as coronary artery disease. To reduce your risk of coronary artery diseases that can lead to bundle branch block, you can:

  • Stop smoking if you're a smoker
  • Reduce the dietary cholesterol and fat in your meals
  • Keep your weight at normal levels
  • Exercise regularly, aiming for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week
  • Control any underlying health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes
