Heart Attack Risk

This test will help you figure your risk of a first heart attack. Select your category for each risk factor then press the "Calculate Score" button to find out your risk.

If you scored 4 points or more you could be above average risk for a first heart attack compared to the general adult population. The more points you score the higher the risk.

The Heart Attack Risk calculator is a tool for general information purposes only and does not address individual circumstances. It may not be right for you and should not be relied upon in making decisions about your health. Always consult your doctor for medical advice.
