Is your heart older than you?

This year’s World Heart Day will be held on Monday 29 September 2014. Join the 6 million people who have already found out their heart age by taking the free, simple, online HeartAge test.

The HeartAge test asks you a few simple questions about your body, health and family history and then, taking into account the key risk factors for heart disease and how they interact, provides you with one number – your individual heart age. Research from HeartAge shows that 70% of people in the UK who have taken the test have a heart age higher than their real age, and this rises to 78% for men and for those over the age of 65. Having a heart age older than your real age could be an indication that you need to make some changes to your diet and lifestyle.
