Today we’re going to talk about important lesser-known risk factors for heart attacks. A risk factor is a certain variable that you can use to help predict the likelihood of something happening.

Well-known risk factors for a heart attack include:
• High blood pressure
• Smoking
• Alcohol consumption
• Family history
• Age
• Gender
• Diabetes
• Cholesterol
• Obesity

It’s important to know the difference between cause and correlation.

A causes B

A occurs at the same time as B (but it doesn’t mean A caused B)

You’ll often hear that a high-fat diet causes diabetes, heart disease, or cancer. But, after a deeper look into certain studies, you might notice that instead of a high-fat diet causing these issues, it’s only associated or correlated with these issues. There may also be other variables involved. For example, the person may have also been on a high-carb diet.

Lesser-known risk factors for heart attacks:
1. High insulin
2. CAC score
3. ApoB to ApoA1 ratio (you want high ApoA1 and low ApoB)
4. Small dense LDL particles
5. High Lp (a)
6. Poor sleep
7. Stress
8. Visceral fat
9. Inflammation

An advanced lipid profile test is fantastic to help you better understand your heart health by giving you a deeper look at what’s going on.

Interestingly, high insulin is associated with many health issues that are risk factors for heart attacks. Check out my other videos to learn more about how to lower your insulin.
