Is your heart older than you?

12th September, 2018

Is your heart older than you?

An online test from Public Health England (PHE) has found that 80% of people have a ‘heart age’ older than their actual age, putting them at an increased risk of premature death by heart attack or stroke.

Although in most cases this was only by a small margin, the test by PHE discovered that over a third had an older heart age difference of more than five years. The online tool assesses those aged between 30 and 75, using a series of questions on lifestyle, physical health, and family history.

Making lifestyle changes and checking your heart age using the PHE’s online tool can be important ways to reduce and highlight risk. But a spokesperson from protection provider Aegon has also highlighted the importance of covering against one of the UK’s most pressing health concerns.

Heart attack has now become the second biggest cause for life insurance claims after cancer, and is currently the leading cause of death in men under the age of 75. In fact according to Aegon, heart-related protection claims accounted for 23% of all life insurance claims and 18.5% of all critical illness claims in 2017.
