Risks for Heart Disease

You can modify some risk factors for heart disease, but others you can't. Concentrate on what you have the power to change.

You can change:
  • high blood pressure
  • high LDL (bad cholesterol)
  • high triglycerides
  • low HDL (good cholesterol) smoking
  • being over weight
  • physical inactivity

What you can't change:
  • age
  • race
  • gender
  • family history
