Heart Risk Evaluations is a high-level medical tool designed to identify and reduce risk for heart attack and stroke.  It utilizes a computerized system that analyzes 22 common risk factors for heart attack and stroke and returns an index score as well as provides personalized, detailed, printed reports that outline a course of action for improving heart risk factors. 

The Heart Risk Evaluations web page is a rich source of heart-healthy information.  It is designed to be very educational and to produce changes that will lead to increased cardiovascular health that ultimately causes a reduction in cardiac events.

Included is our online version of the book "Cholesterol and Heart Risk," which thoroughly discusses cardiovascular risk as it relates to total cholesterol levels and the subcomponents of cholesterol, such as HDL "good" and LDL "bad" cholesterol.  Other risk factors are also discussed.  Also included is a cholesterol risk chart, which has been referred to as the most accurate chart of its kind available.  It's very easy to use, and provides a thorough cardiovascular analysis based on total cholesterol levels, HDL, the ratios between them, and triglycerides.  Triglycerides are a blood fat that are also a factor in coronary risk.

Data and research from the most respected authorities in the field have been heavily drawn on.  These include Dr. William Castelli, longtime medical director of the famed Framingham Heart Study, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. John McDougall, Robert Kowalski, Dr. Harvey Simon of the Harvard Medical School and others.  Dr. Ornish's program for reversal of heart disease is discussed, as is data from the Framingham Heart Study.  Framingham has revealed perhaps more than any other study or source the bulk of data available about blood lipids, including total cholesterol, HDL and LDL levels, triglycerides, and how they all relate to cardiovascular disease.  An optimal diet, including recommended percentage of dietary fat, is also provided.

The following factors are evaluated in Heart Risk Evaluations:

Age, Gender, Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, HDL/LDL Ratio, Triglycerides, Stress/Tension, History of Cardiac Disease, History of Bypass, History of Angioplasty, Angina, Family History of Heart Attack, Exercise, Body Weight, Waist Measurement, Smoking, 2nd-Hand Smoke, Diabetes, Post-Menopausal, Systolic Blood Pressure and Diastolic Blood Pressure.
