Have you checked your risk for heart disease? Beyond BP sugar and cholesterol. 

  • There are unconventional risk factors which are neglected totally. I would like to name few of them. 
  • Check your blood hs-CRP levels to know whether your body has ongoing inflammation as its levels above 2 carry significant risk of heart disease in immediate future. 
  • Snoring is major risk factor for heart disease 
  • Air pollution exposes you to lead and cadmium heavy metals which causes atherosclerosis 
  • Lpa is blood marker. If it is above 50 it indicates genetic risk of developing heart disease
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult a specialist & get answers to your questions!
