What is "Heart Age?"

Heart Age is a quick way to get a good idea of your overall heart health. It compares your CVD risk against someone without any risk factors.

The fewer risk factors you have, the closer your heart age will be to your actual age. In fact, it may be younger.

What does "risk of CVD" mean?"

This is your chance of having a cardiovascular event [heart attack. stroke. heart failure. or peripheral artery disease) in the future. shown as a percentage [%}.

For example. if your 10-year risk is calculated to be 15%, then it is estimated that 15 out of a hundred people like you will have a cardiovascular event in the next 10 years.

For people younger than 60. this profiler can also calculate 30-year risk of CVD.

About the Framingham Heart Study

This assessment uses scoring systems developed from the Framingham Heart Study. They estimate your risk of cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years as well as the next 30 years if you are younger than 60.

The Framingham Heart Study is one of the most important public health studies in American medical history. The study's goal is to learn why people get heart disease and how it evolves and results in death in the general population.

This information has helped researchers find out. after years of study, how those who devel op heart diseases differ from those who don't.
