You didn't answer this question.
The correct answer is
As you get older, your risk increases. In people assigned male at birth, the risk increases after age 45. In people assigned female at birth, it increases after age 55. Your risk increases if your father or sibling was diagnosed with heart disease before age 55. Your risk also increases if your mother or sibling was diagnosed before age 65. These are risk factors you can control: your blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight. You can cut your risk by not smoking and by getting regular exercise. You can also cut your risk by visiting your healthcare provider regularly. Follow your provider's advice on getting health counseling and using medicines.
