Which groups have an increased risk of heart attack?

8 Mar

The group at the greatest risk of a heart attack are those who have already experienced an attack. Others at increased risk include those who smoke, those who are on treatment for raised blood pressure or have a high cholesterol level and those who are inactive physically, especially if obese. People with diabetes are also at increased risk. It is worth noting that the risk of a heart attack roughly doubles every ten to fifteen years of age.
