This calculator will determine your risk of developing coronary heart disease over the next 10 years and compare this to the risk of others of the same age. This calculator was updated to reflect new guidelines by the National Institutes of Health in December, 2015.
results for relative risk
Thanks for result
Thank you for the result
The duration of diabetes is about 21 y and most of the time my Hg A1c is above 8.5.
Thanks very much for your help!
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.
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.
Very useful since my late mother & my older brother have had heart attacks.
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?
very good tool...!!!
how to calculate the risk???
means there is any formula??
THIS IS VERY HELPFUL TOOL
