My Life Check® and the Simple Seven

Print on Demand

Women and men can also check their heart health by answering a simple set of questions developed by the American Heart Association. Called Life’s Simple 7™, these questions assess your risk for heart disease by these factors: physical activity, diet, weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and smoking status.


A high score means you may have a low risk of heart disease. A low score might mean you’re at risk for heart disease or stroke. The good news is that you can reduce your risk by changing your lifestyle in these areas.
