As a society most of us die of cardiovascular (CV) disease such as heart attacks and strokes. This calculator helps estimate your risk of having a CV event in the next 5 years. It is validated for use in people aged 45 to 74 years, or 30 -74 years for indigenous Australians.
There are things that we can do to reduce the risk of having a CV event. Eating a healthy diet, regular exercise and managing conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol can all reduce your risk.
