Heart Risk Calculator

4.5%

10-year risk of heart disease or stroke

On the basis of your age and calculated risk for heart disease or stroke under 10%, the USPSTF guidelines suggest you would not likely benefit from starting aspirin.

On the basis of your calculated risk for heart disease or stroke less than 7.5%, the ACC/AHA guidelines suggest you have no indication to be on a statin.

Based on your age and race, your blood pressure is poorly-controlled, and you should initiate lifestyle interventions and consider starting a thiazide diuretic, ACEI/ARB, or calcium channel blocker.
