Discover Your Heart Health with Beaumont’s Free Heart Risk Assessment
When we are relatively healthy and feel good, most of us do not often think about our health. It is only until something happens that causes us to stop, reflect, and make changes.
Did you know that high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease?
A startling 47% of Americans have at least one of these three risk factors. Unfortunately, heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women.
Think back on your family history and take note if you have any hereditary disposition for heart disease.
One of the best ways to prevent heart disease is to understand and manage your risk factors.
What’s Your Heart’s Age?
After you’ve done that, you can take Beaumont’s heart risk assessment.
It will help you learn about the age of your heart and your risk of developing the disease.
The best part?
It’s completely FREE and will only take a few minutes of your time.
If you think you are at increased risk, your best bet is to follow up with a doctor or connect with a cardiologist.
Do You Know Your Family History?
Personally, when I learned about the Beaumont heart risk assessment, I immediately wanted to learn more.
My father, Francisco, who is very dear to me suffered from a heart attack in his early forties. I would have loved it if he could have been able to take Beaumont’s free heart risk assessment.
It would have been such a great tool that I know could have helped him at that age.
Like most fathers are to their daughters, he is my hero. I love him very much and I admire that he is a fighter through it all.
My family and I have seen him through many rough times since because of heart disease with subsequent infarctions.
I know it is not an easy path to walk.
Since my dad had early heart disease, I often wonder if I have a higher risk for it too.
I am 35 and over the years, I’ve put on a little more weight than I’d like.
That, and I’ve always had high blood pressure, even at a normal body weight, it was always high.
This year, I have put a heavy focus on my health. I have been making significant positive steps toward improving it.
Check out these 5 heart healthy habits you can start today. I found them really useful and I’ve significantly reduced my red meat intake for starters.
They’re great tips to get you on your way.
After taking this quick assessment, I know that I am due to go and talk to my doctor to see how I’m doing and what I can do better.
I love that it lets you know your heart health right away, and your risk. But, the test gives you the option to learn more with a more in-depth report of what your risk factors are.

What a helpful thing. I would check and test it now actually. So few things that can do such assessment and why not try right?
Exactly, it is a great tool. As always, meet up with your doctor afterwards if you have questions.
Heart disease is really scary. This sounds like a great app to check heart statistics! Reading this post was quite an eye opener!
Hope it helps, heart disease really is very common and sometimes we do not know our risk.
This is really a great way to assess your heart’s condition. To avoid any more complications or diseases in the future. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
It was my pleasure, hope it gives you some answers.
This is super interesting and I am now working on my own issue of slightly high blood pressure. I am working out, losing weight and working on eating cleaner than ever to help reduce all of the bad things going on within me 🙂 I appreciate you sharing this as it seems like a wonderful app & it is so important to make sure everyone has healthy heart health!
We are on the same boat girl, hope this helps.
I didn’t know about this but it sounds interesting. Will definitely give this a try and take the heart risk assessment.

At the beginning of the year, we discovered that my husband had heart problems. I bought a similar bracelet in for my husband and me. Monitors heart rate and pressure. So I’m sure to do Beaumont’s heart risk assessment. Thanks for the suggestion.
My pleasure, hope it helps.
As a nurse I totally agree – it’s so important to check your heart health! I also have heart disease run in my family. I do think about my own heart health and have chosen a healthier diet to give myself a better start.
So, so, important!
What a great tool to assess heart risk. This means the world to me because my mom passed in 2016 after suffering a major heart attack. She had never been overweight, exercised daily and had no outward signs of heart problems. It pays to know!
It really does, I am so sorry for your loss.
I have to take this heart risk quiz for my own self satisfaction. My father had diabetes kidney disease and heart problems so I have a bad family history to start with.
It is always a good idea to check and then consult your doc. Hope it gives you some answers!
I will have to look into this. I want to be sure my heart is healthy. My husband needs to do this for sure. He has a history of heart issues in the family.
It is always good to check!

This is so important. I’m 49 and have suffered two heart attacks and my father died at 46 of a massive heart attack.
So important. I am so sorry for your loss.
This is really helpful. I am going to do this and share it with my family.
Awesome, thanks for sharing.
Oh this is hitting home. My sister just got out of the hospital. I just noticed my hair if falling out and was thinking something has to be the matter. Thanks for this!
My pleasure, I hope you figure it out.
Diabetes affects both sides of my family more than heart disease. However, it never hurts for me to check out my heart health!
They also have a test for this, take a look.
