Medium Risk of Heart Disease

From your answers, it looks like you’re currently at a medium risk of developing heart disease, but this assessment isn’t a substitute for talking to a heart expert. You can lower your risk significantly by maintaining a healthy weight, diet and exercise routine. Most importantly, find a primary care doctor near you and talk with them about your heart disease risk at your annual physical each year.
