 You cannot use this tool if you already have had a heart attack or stroke or another form of cardiovascular disease.  The tool is also not designed for people with FH.  However you can use it if you have rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, atrial fibrillation or diabetes.

 The heart age calculator will tell you:

  • Your heart age 
  • The age at which you can expect to have your first heart attack or stroke
  • Your percentage risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next 10 years
  • Any changes that you can make to your diet and lifestyle to help lower your heart age

Heart Age is a sign of how healthy your heart is. This clever calculator works it out from a few simple questions.
