    Understanding my cardiovascular risk

    The American Heart Association has guidelines and recommendations for estimating one’s cardiovascular disease risk. Risk assessment is extremely important since it shows if one is at a high risk of cardiovascular disease and if so, what can be done to address any cardiovascular risk factors one may have.

    Risk assessments are used to determine the likelihood of a patient developing cardiovascular disease, heart attack or stroke in the future. They are calculated using a number of factors including age, gender, race, cholesterol levels, blood pressure reading, diabetes and smoking status. Typically, these factors are used to estimate one’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years.

    Calculating the 10-year risk for cardiovascular disease using risk factors is recommended every 4-6 years in patients 20-79 years old who are free from cardiovascular disease.

    Stop by any of our clinics to get your yearly labs done. Once we have the lab results, we will be able to calculate your 10-year atherosclerotic cardiovascular risk accurately. We can discuss the implications of the findings and can also weigh the risk and benefits of various treatments and lifestyle changes to help reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

    Note: Cholesterol levels are accurate when drawn after fasting for at least 8-12 hours. Drinking water is allowed.
