Q: I haven't had any symptoms, but I'm afraid that I will have heart disease one day because of family history. I want to know whether heart disease can be prevented. Can I lower the inherited risk of heart disease? A: There are many types of heart disease. You didn't mention which type your family have got. Some types are hereditary, but others are not. There is no way to prevent a heart disease from family history, but you can take precautions. Regular medical check-ups help to detect it in an early stage and the treatment would be easier. Besides, a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle may put its arrival off. In your case, you should have a check-up first.    Related FAQ
