Is your heart older than you?

To increase awareness about heart health and reduce their risk of heart attack and stroke, One You Merton is urging adults to take three minutes out of their day to take the Heart Age test.

The NHS Heart Age test offers an online assessment for anyone over 30 which allows a person to input basic physical and lifestyle-related information, and provides an immediate estimation of their ‘heart age’.

Having a heart age older than your chronological age means that you are at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

If you know your blood pressure, you’ll get a more accurate result. Ask your local pharmacy for more information.
