Heart Health Answers  How can I reduce my risks of having a heart attack?

Coronary heart disease is still the largest single cause of death in Australia. More women die from heart disease than any other illnesses. Heart disease is the silent killer in specially in women. Read more Women & Heart disease.

There are a number of risk factors for heart disease. These can be separated into two groups. Modifiable risk factors and Unmodifiable risk factors.

Modifiable risk factors are:  (The risk factors that you can change - these are lifestyle issues)
      • Atherosclerosis - (cholesterol build up in the arteries) 
      • High Blood Cholesterol
      • High Blood Pressure
      • Overweight / Obesity

• Diabetes
      • Smoking
      • Stress and Negative emotions - such as sadness,, anger, loneliness, resentments etc

Unmodifiable Risk Factors are: (The risk factors that you cannot change
      • Age
      • Gender
      • Family History

Modifiable risk factors are the ones we have control over to change, where as the unmodifiable risk factors, we cannot change. Most of our risk factors are modifiable, which gives us the power to control these to reduce our chances of developing CAD.

How can I reduce my risks?
The more risk factors you have greater your chances of developing CAD. We believe no matter what your risk factors are or how many risk factors you have, you can change these by taking positive attitude towards life and adapting a positive mind set to eliminate your chances of developing heart disease or any other disease or illness.
