Risk Factors

Make a change and take charge. While some factors for vascular disease can be avoided and others can't, we’ll help you identify your risks and make a plan to reduce stress in your life.

Common risk factors for vascular disease:

  • Excess body weight - Excess body fat leads to a higher chance of heart disease
  • Physical inactivity - Exercise is central to a healthier heart
  • High blood pressure - 140/90 Hg or higher
  • Cholesterol - High LDL or low HDL
  • Diabetes - Increases the risk even when glucose levels are under control
  • Tobacco use - Smoking severely damages your heart and lungs
  • Stress - Take steps to reduce or manage stress
  • Alcohol - Limit your alcohol consumption
  • Diet and nutrition - A healthy diet is key to fighting cardiovascular disease
  • Increasing age - Risk for both men and women increases significantly after 65
  • Ethnicity - African, Asian, Mexican, and/or Native American
  • Gender - Men have a greater risk of heart attack than women

By recognizing the risk factors that you can change, you can take control and break lifelong habits. With the help of your care team, you’ll be able to take steps toward a healthier you.
