Your Heart Age and Heart Disease Resistance show how well you are protected from cardiovascular diseases like stroke and heart attack.
The risk of heart disease increases steadily with age, so one way to think about your results is: how old is the average person with the same overall risk of heart disease as you?
To arrive at your Heart Age, we match your risk, affected by Cholesterol Balance, Dietary Fatty Acids, Fatty Acid Balance, Low-grade Inflammation, and Metabolic Efficiency, as well as your BMI and smoking status, to the general risk of developing heart disease at different ages.
If your heart is younger or the same age as you, it means you are taking excellent care of your heart health, and have the same risk of heart disease as a younger person. If it’s higher than your age, you should think about lifestyle changes to improve your heart health – acting early helps most.
Heart Disease Resistance
The result demonstrates your odds of averting heart disease in the next 10 years. For example, “2 times stronger than average” means you have twice the odds of avoiding heart disease compared to the average person of the same age and sex.
Heart Disease Resistance is affected by Cholesterol Balance, Dietary Fatty Acids, Fatty Acid Balance, Low-grade Inflammation, and Metabolic Efficiency, as well as your BMI and smoking status.
