Heart Risk Assessment

Early detection of Heart Disease is tremendously important as it is the leading cause of death in the United States.

What is Heart Risk Assessment?

Heart disease or cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a universal term used to describe a range of disorders affecting one’s heart. There are a group of tests and health factors that estimate your chances of having a heart attack or a stroke within the next five years. These risk assessment methods continue to get better. And have been refined to indicate the degree of the risk: borderline, intermediate, or high risk.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Many people may not be aware of the risk of developing this disease. This is especially because you cannot feel the risk factors. The good news is that these factors are preventable through regular check-ups. Heart risk assessment is a process, not a calculation. 

It takes its course to build your risk profile based on the following factors:

  • Age
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Smoking History
  • Family History
  • Blood Pressure
  • Medical History
