In brief: Hello

Risk of arteriosclerosis is reduced when smoking is discontinued, blood pressure is normalized and cholesterol is reduced.
If there is diabetes, control is important. There is also a role for exercise. Achieving ideal body weight is important as well. Residual risk resulting from heredity is of course not amenable to change.
