I posted a comment which showed a mistake in your formula with the link to Framingham website that shows where the mistake is. I suggest that the readers try other calculators e.g. from American Heart Association, National Institutes of Health, American College of Cardiology or just look up Framingham formula yourself.

Mistakes in calculations, overestimates risk

You calculator is wrong. There is clearly a bug in the way your programmers calculated the Framingham formula. You are equating the score of 7 with 7% 10-year risk. This is not what the Framingham study showed: https://www.framinghamheartstudy.org/risk-functions/coronary-heart-disease/hard-10-year-risk.php

Your results are wrong to the point of being ridiculous. Please correct them - I know it's probably an honest mistake, but it can potentially cause readers to question their doctors, demand drugs they don't need and lead to overtreatment.

I figured out where your mistake is. You convert Framingham points into much higher number: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Framingham_Risk_Score 7 points for women is NOT equal 6% risk, it's equal to 1% risk. This is why your calculated risk is so much higher (ridiculously higher) than American COllege of Cardiology, American Heart Association, National Institutes of Health, Clevelend clinic - virtually EVERY calculator on the web.

It looks like a great tool. but since it was published in 1998, have there been changes since that time in the standards , made by the Medical Heart association? or are these stricter standards just hype, made up by the pharmaceutical companies?
