Risk Factors for CHD. Age, sex, and personal and family history of cardiovascular disease are nonmodifiable risk factors for CHD. Hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, and cigarette smoking are the major modifiable risk factors. 5 6 7 They powerfully influence risk, are common in populations, and are widely amenable to prevention and treatment. Low HDL cholesterol levels are also regarded as an. Since the s, mortality from coronary heart disease as well as stroke has declined substantially in Japan, probably due to a major decline in blood pressure levels and for men a more recent decline in smoking, in spite of an increase in body mass index and total cholesterol levels.

and the actual number of deaths declined %, but the burden and risk factors remain alarmingly high. • The estimated direct and indirect cost of heart disease in to (average annual) was $ billion. • Heart attacks ($ billion) and Coronary Heart Disease ($ billion) were 2 .   -- U.S. deaths from heart disease and stroke dropped about 25% from to -- five years ahead of goals set by the American .

  SLIDE 7. (heart disease state map) Looking beyond the national figures for both heart disease and stroke, there are significant state differences. In , about a third of the states met the target to reduce coronary heart disease death rates, as shown in dark and light blue on this map. States with the highest rates are shown in red.   Low HDL and high triglycerides appear to be the only factors that increase the risk of death from heart disease in women over age Diabetes. Diabetes increases the risk of heart disease in women more than it does in men, perhaps because women with diabetes more often have added risk factors, such as obesity, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
