A risk factor is something that increases a person s chance of developing cardiovascular disease. There are some risks that you can t do much about. For example, if a family member developed cardiovascular disease at an early age (before the age of 60), your risk increases. Your age is also a factor. The risk of developing cardiovascular disease increases for men after the age of 45 and for women after the age of 55.
