Can you tell at middle age if you're going to have heart disease later?

Dr. Robert Vogt Lowell
Specializes in Pediatric Cardiology
May predict chance: Depending on your family history of heart disease, your lifestyle choices (smoke? Drink? Drugs?) your diet and exercise habits, your personal history of health problems (obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes etc.) you can make an educated guess based on what we have learned from the population you are part of as time goes by.
