disease. Other risk factors can often be changed or controlled with life style changes and sometimes medications.
Risk Factors Include:
- High blood pressure
- Cigarette smoking
- Carotid artery disease
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Peripheral artery disease
- Age (men over 45; women over 55)
- HDL (healthy cholesterol less than 50 in women; less than 40 in men)

(at an age less than 55 in father or brother; less than 65 in mother or sister)
Almost half of all coronary events occur in people without traditional risk factors.
