In brief: Often, none

While medicine has come a long way, there are things we cannot predict.
Often the first sign of coronary artery disease is a heart attack. Things that can be controlled to delay this include: smoking cessation, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol control, increase exercise, healthy diet. Family history and age give idea of how worried to be.

In brief: Heart disease

Some early signs may be high blood pressure or palpatations.
However many individuals do not recognize any early signs and that is why one should have regular physical examinations to detect early signs do treatment can prevent complications.
