Are Heart Attacks Hereditary?
Most people know that being overweight, smoking, or neglecting physical activity increases a person’s risk for a heart attack. What some do not realize is that your risk for a heart attack could be inherited from relatives. Even if you eat a perfect diet, are physically fit, and make smart health choices, you could still be at risk. Knowing whether or not you are at risk helps you determine how important the lifestyle choices are for you.
For instance, someone who has a low family risk for a heart attack could get away with being a little less active or putting on a few pounds in their middle age. However, if there is a history of heart attacks in your family, you will want to be extremely vigilant when it comes to caring for your heart health.
In addition to considering your family’s history with heart attacks, there are other health issues that could factor into your risk for a heart attack. Research shows that a family history of high blood pressure and high cholesterol also play a role. Not only is heart health a concern, you also need to consider whether anyone was diagnosed with diabetes.
How Many Branches Does the Risk Reach?
The good news is you do not need to worry about every single relative in your family tree. In most cases, it will be only the health of your immediate relatives that play a role in your risk for a heart attack. Several studies have shown a link between heart disease in parents and their children’s heart health. If both of your parents suffered from heart issues your risk is increased even more.
If you have a brother or sister who has suffered a heart attack or has been diagnosed with heart disease, your risk of developing a problem is nearly 50% higher. A 2005 study showed that the heart health of siblings is actually a better indicator than that of parents.
Finally, you will want to consider the health of your grandparents, too. If either of them suffered a heart attack, you will want to let your doctor know. Though this is not as clear an indicator of risk as your parents or siblings, it provides some guidance for developing a heart health plan for your future.
Remember, even if every member of your family has suffered from heart disease, you are not guaranteed to suffer a heart attack. Family history only indicates a higher risk. View your family history as a guide for determining your greatest health concerns and let the information you gather from your family help you create a plan for healthy living.
