HEART DISEASE: If the information you provided is accurate, your friend's risk would be low. Nonetheless, his "anxiety" and "depression" are also concerning. The first step would be for your friend to follow up with his Doctor who might be able to put his mind at ease regarding heart disease and who might also be able to dig deeper into the possible root causes for his anxiety and depression.
