Australian Absolute Cardiovascular Disease Risk Calculator

Absolute risk calculates your chance, as an individual, of getting cardiovascular disease (which includes all heart, stroke and blood vessel diseases).

It can be hard to know whether you are at risk of getting cardiovascular disease, because sometimes you can’t feel any symptoms.

If you are between 45 and 74 years old (or 35 years and older if you are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background) you can use the cardiovascular disease risk calculator to find out your absolute "heart and stroke" risk score.

Your score will tell you your chance of getting heart, stroke and blood vessel disease in the next five years.

When you find out your score, you will need to ask your general practitioner what it means and how you can take steps to reduce your chance to getting cardiovascular disease.
