Smoke free for 12 mo. As of easter 2014, what are my risks of stroke/heart attack at this point?
Would need screening
Hard to answer
risk is mediated by family hx and other things
like being male, having high BP and high cholesterol among others including smoking
you could have a coronary calcium score (cat scan that measures calcium in your heart arteries) and a screening test that would look at your carotid arteries in your neck for starters.
Good thing you stopped smoking !
