Is your heart older than you?

Dept. of Health & Human Services
Your heart may be older than you are – and that’s not good. If this is the case, you have a higher risk for heart attacks and stroke. But you can take action to put your heart on a healthy beat.
According to a new CDC Vital Signs report, 3 out of 4 U.S. adults have a predicted heart age that is older than their actual age. The heart age concept was created to more effectively communicate a person’s risk of dying from heart attack or stroke and to show what can be done to lower that risk. The risks include high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, diabetes status, and body mass index as an indicator for obesity. You can check out your heart age at www.cdc.gov/heartdisease/heartage.htm.
