Following a blood test at my doctors they came up with a score of 15% as the likelihood of me having a heart attack etc in the next 10 years. I've looked at the test and it scoring mechanism and it seems very rough and ready to me. Also, it doesn't fit with the way I feel. I am a healthy 66 man who runs a 5K Parkrun every week, I do bits and pieces in the gym and never have I felt dizzy or ever had any problem that would suggest I have a problem with my heart.
It seems to me that I've got a fairly healthy heart and before I take a statin tablets every day for the rest of my life does anyone know of any tests that I could take that would give me a better indication of whether this is a sensible course of action
