By Zaira Salvador (embryologist).
Last Update: 05/22/2019

Cardiovascular risk factors, that is, those circumstances that are associated with a greater probability of suffering from cardiovascular disease can be divided into modifiable and non-modifiable factors.

Non-modifiable cardiovascular risk factors are those that cannot be changed, such as age, sex, and genetic inheritance. In general, males older than 40-45 have a higher risk of having a cardiovascular accident.

With regard to modifiable cardiovascular risk factors, we can highlight those related to lifestyle, such as obesity, cholesterol, tobacco, stress, etc.
