Know your numbers

Your risk of getting heart disease depends on your genes, age, sex, race, lifestyle, and other factors. While you can't change some risk factors, you can adjust others. Your doctor may request blood tests to measure several risk factors.

Find out the numbers from your tests, the target range for your health condition and talk to your doctor about what they mean.

Calculate your chance of having a heart attack in the next 10 years.
