In brief: Low risk

Your age alone makes you low risk.
The name of the game is prevention. Normal blood pressure, healthy diet, healthy weight, no tobacco use, regular exercise are all key.

I completely agree with Dr. Poza-Juncal's assessment. I am happy that you are taking an active role in your health. We would need to know more about your cholesterol profile to be sure, i.e. the HDL, triglycerides and LDL. A fasting blood sugar and BMI would be helpful as well. It is really the entirety of risk factors that help guide an individual program of prevention.
