The effect of these modifiable risk factors can be reduced if you make lifestyle changes. non-modifiable risk factors are: age ethnic background family history of heart disease. The older you are, the more likely you are to develop coronary heart disease or to have a cardiac event (angina, heart attack or stroke). Risk factors are conditions that increase your risk of developing a disease. Risk factors are either modifiable, meaning you can take measures to change them, or non-modifiable, which means they cannot be changed. Modifiable risk factors include: smoking high blood pressure diabetes physical inactivity being overweight high blood cholesterol. The good news is that the effect of many risk factors can be changed (you cannot change the risk factor, only its effect). Non-Modifiable Risk Factors Age. Gender. Family history. Ethnicity. Modifiable risk factors known to play a part in ischaemic heart disease include: cigarette smoking, hyperlipidaemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, lack of physical activity, high alcohol intake.

Modifiable risk factors are behaviours and exposures that can raise or lower a person's risk of cancer. They are modifiable because they can, in theory, be changed.

Uncontrollable risk factors are those which you cannot influence. Age. Family history. Ethnicity. Gender.

Nonmodifiable risk factors (also called risk markers) for stroke include age, sex, race-ethnicity, and genetics. In general, stroke is a disease of aging. The incidence of stroke increases with age, with the incidence doubling for each decade after 55 years of age.

Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include unmodifiable factors (i. e., factors that cannot be changed) and modifiable factors (i. e., risk factors that may be controlled or reduced by lifestyle choices and medications). Unmodifiable risk factors include the following: Age (older than 65 years old)

Age, gender, family history, race, and genetic factors are some examples of non-modifiable risk factors. For example, in comparison to people under the age of 50 years, people above the age of 50 years are more likely to have high blood pressure, which would put them at higher risk for a heart attack.

Age is not considered to be a modifiable risk factor but, unfortunately, it outranks all those that are—eg, lipids, blood pressure, and smoking—as a predictor of clinical events. If so, a tight limit exists on how much prevention can be achieved.
