Heart Disease Risk

Heart Disease Risk: A Summary

Whatever your heart disease risk score turns out to be, the results should not replace your regular checkups with your doctor. The best way to prevent coronary heart disease is to:
 
  • Know your heart disease risk factors
  • Openly discuss any risk factors you may have with your doctor
  • Take steps to control your risk factors, where possible.
     
Your doctor can be an important partner in helping you set and reach goals for heart health. Don't wait for your doctor to mention heart disease or its risk factors. Many physicians don't routinely bring up the topic, especially with their female patients.
