What numbers do I need to know to assess my risk of heart disease? Blood Pressure. Shoot for 120/80 mm Hg. High blood pressure is referred to as the “silent killer,” because there are no symptoms. Uncontrolled, it’s a major risk for heart disease and increases your risk of developing heart disease by 25 percent.

Body Mass Index. Your lifestyle can increase your risk for heart disease. Eating a diet high in saturated fats, trans fat, and cholesterol has been linked to heart disease and related conditions, such as atherosclerosis. Also, too much salt (sodium) in the diet can raise blood pressure. Not getting enough physical activity can lead to heart disease.

1-100 indicates low to a slightly higher risk than 0. 101-400 is considered a moderate risk group. 400-plus is considered a relatively high risk for having significant blockages and coronary disease. Those numbers can tell an important story about your risk for heart disease. Heart disease is any disorder of the heart muscle, valves, rhythm or blood flow to the heart.

Today in the U.S., heart disease is the number one cause of death among both men and women. So knowing your numbers is an important part of your health story. It’s also the. Pre-hypertension is 120 to 139 (systolic) and/or 80 to 89 (diastolic). Hypertension – also known as high blood pressure is 140 or higher (systolic) and 90 or higher (diastolic).

One in three. Know Your Health Numbers | American Heart Association The American Heart Association explains the critical health numbers that someone with diabetes should know including blood sugar, blood cholesterol and body weight as well as the tools to track your numbers. High cholesterol is another heart disease risk factor that’s important to watch when you have diabetes. Total cholesterol should be below 200, with low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad. Other important numbers that can provide insight into whether or not you’re at risk for heart disease down the line include your blood pressure levels and how low or high your LDLs (aka “bad”.

What’s Your Heart Disease Risk? Posted on October 26, 2018. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. According to the American Heart Association, “Cardiovascular disease, listed as the underlying cause of death, accounts for nearly 836,546 deaths in the US.That’s about 1 of every 3 deaths in the US.”.

The ideal is a 10-year risk that’s less than 7.5 percent. For the new study, researchers focused on the ACC/AHA calculator, which is the most commonly used. The researchers gathered health.

List of related literature:

Heart disease is the most common killer at 33 percent of all deaths, followed by cancer at 24 percent, and strokes at 7 percent.6 By keeping abreast of the current research findings, we can learn the “risk factors” associated with each disease; we can even improve our chances for continued health.

  • They only said what the symptoms are for woman. If this was the other way around the Internet would be going off! Try and be fair because I was really looking forward to answers but instead I literally just watched a sexist heart disease video.

  • This nice video provides a short description about Heart Attack Risk Factors. Heart patient must need to follow this video and I am sure they will benefited from this video. Every heart patients will take care about the risk factor showing in this video.

    I also provide natural health solution for heart patients.

    Follow @ Meschinohealth(dot)com, to know more.

  • This doctor is a spokesperson for the American Heart Association (AHA) so beware! The AHA is given millions by Big Pharma! Just in 2017 they gave out 1960’s advice that coconut oil and saturated fats like butter should be avoided which we now know is totally false. Please do your research. Some resources are Dr Mercola, Dr Hyman, integrative cardiologist Dr Wolfson and more. I have heart failure from a virus attacking my heart in 2014. I was grateful for mainstream healthcare when virus produced stroke. BUT, now it is up to me to decide what pharmaceuticals I absolutely need, and if for life (I’m 71). Because I know mainstream healthcare is run by big profits and not my health I did research as best I could. I actually went to see Dr Wolfson. Never trust doctors paid by AHA or who are only mainstream medicine, they want you sick and on drugs. Good luck and good health to all. (BTW, the AHA instructed by Seattle hospital to give me MARGARINE! As Dr Mercola says, “this is akin to the flat earth theory.” ������)

  • This “my friend” example is actually not effective communication. And saying that the 80% blockage could cause an event “in several years” is not effective communication, it says the risk is very far in the future.

    5.0 out of 5 starsWe credit Dr. Stephen Sinatra for saving my husband from END STAGE HEART DISEASE Cholesterol is a red herring!
    November 18, 2015
    Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra MD is RIGHT ON THE MONEY. We owe my husband’s continued life to the TRUTH as revealed by Dr. Stephen Sinatra as he discusses in his books including The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology and Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? When I heard the Great Cholesterol Myth was coming out I quickly nabbed a copy from our local library I have since purchased a copy here on Amazon to be able to share with our many friends who are overly concerned with their cholesterol to the detriment of over-looking inflammation. Be sure to get the NEW & UPDATED 2015 version of the The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes. The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes for Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan that Will

    Dr. Sinatra discussed The Great Cholesterol Myth in good detail on the Dr. Oz show. Both Dr. Oz and Dr. Sinatra have publicly stated they no longer believe so many people should be prescribed statin drugs and they both have discussed why children should NOT be taking statin drugs.

    When entire teams of cardiologists sent my husband home to die and gave us NO advice to keeping him alive, a friend told us about The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology and Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks: A Revolutionary Program for a Longer, Healthier Life. We also found Reverse Heart Disease Now: Stop Deadly Cardiovascular Plaque Before It’s Too Late and The Doctor’s Heart Cure, Beyond the Modern Myths of Diet and Exercise: The Clinically-Proven Plan of Breakthrough Health Secrets That Helps You Build a Powerful, Disease-Free Heart informative as well. In Dr. Sinatra’s books we learned the truth of the Awesome Foursome (supplements) and how to re-energize the heart at the cellular level. Instead the 10 years prior his former medical doctors always lectured him about his cholesterol levels (never high, but they wanted his levels lower due to his former diagnosis of type 2 diabetes (now “resolved” per our primary care M.D.) and hypertension (under far better control now since we learned the truth of Metabolic Cardiology.)

    Despite being prescribed statins, high blood pressure medications and diabetes medications, my husband developed END STAGE heart disease. After 4 stents his ejection fraction was still less than 15%, he could not get out of bed to get a shower, he was weak, sick, frail and pale. Today he’s growing stronger, vibrant, glowing skin and is the picture of improving health. ALL because of healthy eating and VERY wise supplementation including the Awesome Foursome as Sinatra writes to great length about magnesium, l-carnitine, d-ribose, and co-enzymeQ10 (though we prefer to use ubiquinol with PQQ instead.)

    INFLAMMATION IS THE PROBLEM. Lack of NUTRITION is the problem. OVER-PROCESSED FOOD is the problem (we refer to this as chemicalized sludge). OVER-MEDICATION is the problem! Egotistical medical doctors who deny the truth further contribute to the problem! HEAVY METALS is ALSO part of the problem. Find a ACAM doctor willing to do an IV Chelation challenge with urinalysis and see which heavy metals are involved we’re repeatedly seeing MERCURY, LEAD, THALLIUM and MRI Contrast GADOLINIUM among our friends and acquaintances on local support groups. We will NEVER EVER EVER consent to an MRI with contrast EVER AGAIN, GADOLINIUM IS TOXIC! GADOLINIUM CAUSED MY HUSBAND’s ATRIAL FIBRILLATION AND PARTIAL PARALYSIS.

    The answer is NUTRITION, supplementation wisely, ANTI-OXIDANTS for reducing inflammation, EDTA treatments followed up mineral supplementation to remove heavy metals, etc. We use LOTS of turmeric in our home for cooking rice, soups, stews, homemade french salad dressing, etc. Turmeric is an awesome anti-inflammatory so much so my husband controlled pain from surgery to repair his hip fracture yes, turmeric is indeed that powerful! This is why turmeric has been used so widely in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as in Ayurvedic medicine (India) as practiced the past 4,000 8,000 years, respectively. Garlic and the other culinary herbs have so many wonderful phytonutrients that also help to further reduce inflammation and increase overall cardiovascular health, this is why they have been so widely used over many thousands of years. Our ancestors were far wiser than we generally give them credit.

    By the way, STATIN DRUGS deplete Co-enzyme Q 10 which causes MUSCLE PAIN, JOINT PAIN, CRIPPLED “arthritic” HANDS, BACK PAIN, etc. Read THE GREAT CHOLESTEROL MYTH for the truth… you will be surprised.

    Highly Recommend! EVERYONE concerned with heart disease should read The Great Cholesterol Myth. We feel this is so vital that we are giving a copy to our cardiologist and primary care doctor so they are on the same page with us. Please consider giving a copy of this book to YOUR primary care doctor and YOUR cardiologist, let’s get them ALL on the same page for the benefit of our entire society as a whole. Big Pharma is NOT looking out for our best interests.
