What is My Risk?

About half a million people die suddenly in the US every year. The commonest cause of sudden death is blockages in heart arteries (coronary artery disease). Many of my patients ask me about their risk of having blocked arteries.

Your risk is a complex interplay of many factors including your age, family history, smoking status, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol etc. Click on this National Institute of Health link  to calculate your risk.
