Find out if you're at risk for heart disease

Heart disease is complex. Quest Diagnostics is here to help guide you and your doctor through your heart health profile.

This checklist can help confirm your heart-risk status with your doctor. Take this checklist with you and discuss at your next appointment. If 2 or more of the following apply to you, you are a candidate for our advanced cardiovascular tests.

Factors Yes No Don't know
Do you have a history of heart disease or a heart attack? (This counts as 2.)      
Do you have any other cardiovascular disease (such as peripheral vascular disease or vasculitis)?      
Do you have diabetes?      
Do you have pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or any other type of metabolic disease?      
Do you have a family history of heart disease or heart attack before age 55?      
Do you have a total cholesterol of more than 200 mg/dL?      
Do you have an LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) level of more than 130 mg/dL, or an LDL cholesterol of more than 100 mg/dL if you have had a heart attack?      
Is your triglyceride level more than 150 mg/dL?      
Is your HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) level less than 40 mg/dL?
