What Increases Your Risk of Coronary Heart Disease?
It’s important to talk with your clinicians about your risk for heart disease. This way you can decide together what you can do to lower that risk.
The main risk factors for blockages in the heart’s arteries, called atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease or ASCVD include:
- Elevated LDL or total cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Cigarette smoking
- Being overweight or obese
- Not being physically active
