The Cardiovascular Self-Assessment Tool

Are you at high risk for having a heart attack or stroke? The Canadian Diabetes Association has developed a questionnaire to help you figure out the answer to this question. Check the items below that apply to you:

 
  • I am a man aged 45 years or older or a woman aged 50 years or older
  • I am over 30 years old and have had diabetes for more than 15 years
  • I have problems with circulation:
    • I have had a heart attack, coronary bypass surgery or angioplasty for blocked heart blood vessels
    • I have chest pain with exercise
    • I have leg pain when walking
    • I have had surgery for blocked blood vessels (arteries) in my legs
    • I have had a stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA) or "mini-stroke"
  • My diabetes has affected my eyes, kidneys and/or nerves:
    • My eye doctor tells me that diabetes has affected the back of my eyes (retinopathy)
    • My doctor found some protein in my urine (nephropathy)
    • I have pain or numbness of my feet due to diabetes (neuropathy)
  • I have other risk factors for heart attack or stroke:
    • I smoke cigarettes
    • I have high blood pressure
    • I have high cholesterol
    • I have a family history of heart attacks or strokes in a close relative (man under age 55 years or woman under age 65 years)

If ANY of the above items applies to you, your risk of heart attack or stroke or other problem related to hardening of the arteries is increased and you should take steps to reduce your risk. Speak to your doctor about how you can do this.
