What Is Your Risk of Developing Heart Disease or Having a Heart Attack?

In general, the higher your LDL level and the more risk factors you have (other than LDL), the greater your chances of developing heart disease or having a heart attack. Some people are at high risk for a heart attack because they already have heart disease. Other people are at high risk for developing heart disease because they have diabetes (which is a strong risk factor) or a combination of risk factors for heart disease. Find out your risk for developing heart disease.

Check the list below to see how many of the listed risk factors you have; these are the risk factors that affect your LDL goal.

Even though obesity and physical inactivity are not counted in this list, they are conditions that need to be corrected.
