UMMS: Heart Disease Risk Calculator%>
UMMS Health Calculators

What is your actual heart disease risk?

Begin here:

This calculator can assess the likelihood that you will experience coronary heart disease (CHD) in the next 10 years. CHD occurs when the coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged and cannot supply enough blood to the heart. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women.

You must know your LDL (bad cholesterol) and HDL (good cholesterol) values for this calculator. A blood test by your healthcare professional will provide these values.

This test should be used as a guideline and is based on data derived from the Boston University Framingham Heart Study.
