ASCVD Risk Estimator

Try out the Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) Risk Estimator below to see how it calculates the 10-year and lifetime risk for ASCVD.

All fields are required to calculate ASCVD risk.8,a,b

10-year ASCVD Risk
Calculated

The 10-year Risk Calculator only provides 10-year risk estimates for individuals aged 40 to 79 years.
Lifetime ASCVD Risk

Risk Factorsb
The Lifetime Risk Calculator only provides lifetime risk estimates for individuals aged 20 to 59 years.

NOTE

These estimates may underestimate the 10-year and lifetime risk for persons from some race/ethnic groups, especially American Indians, some Asian Americans (e.g., of south Asian ancestry), and some Hispanics (e.g., Puerto Ricans), and may overestimate the risk for others, including some Asian Americans (e.g., of east Asian ancestry) and some Hispanics (e.g., Mexican Americans).

Because the primary use of these risk estimates is to facilitate the very important discussion regarding risk reduction through lifestyle change, the imprecision introduced is small enough to justify proceeding with lifestyle change counseling informed by these results.

aIntended for use if there is no ASCVD and the LDL cholesterol is <190 mg/dL.

bOptimal risk factors include: total cholesterol of 170 mg/dL, HDL cholesterol of 50 mg/dL, systolic BP of 110 mm Hg, not taking medications for hypertension, not a diabetic, and not a smoker.
