It’s important to know if you’re at risk for heart disease. Take our free heart health profiler to learn your heart age and identify your risk level. It’s also important to know your genetics and family history, as that also plays a large role in your risk for heart disease. Learn more about your family history by reaching out to family members to find out who may have had heart disease or a heart attack, high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Download, print and fill out this family tree with the information you learn. Then meet with a doctor on the medical staff of a Texas Health hospital and create a plan suited for you. Texas Health, along with the American Heart Association is committed to helping prevent heart disease and keep you healthy for generations to come.
