Risk Factors of Cardiovascular Disease - American Medical Centers Киев

Risk Factors of Cardiovascular Disease

Several factors influence your risk of having a heart attack or stroke, or developing another form of cardiovascular disease. Some of these you can’t change; some you can.

Non-modifiable risk factors – risk factors you can’t change – include:

  • age;
  • gender;
  • genes;
  • ethnic origin;
  • there’s also strong evidence that your early development in the womb and during childhood helps set the stage for heart health or heart disease.

Cardiovascular disease risk factors that can be modified include habits and
choices such as:

  • tobacco use;
  • physical activity;
  • what you eat and drink.

All of the above affect physiologic factors like:

  • blood pressure;
  • cholesterol level;
  • blood sugar;
  • other potentially modifiable risk factors include air pollution, noise, stress, and infection, though these are not as easy to control directly.

Having a risk factor doesn’t automatically mean you will develop cardiovascular disease. But the more of them you have, the higher the odds—unless you take action.

COVID-19 Testing at American Medical Centers

We have tested thousands of patients across the country for COVID-19 since we began testing in early April. Here’s the latest information on our testing services:

Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for travelling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact your local AMC.

Where is AMC testing patients for COVID-19?

We’re currently offering PCR testing to anyone interested either in the clinic or in the comfort of your home/hotel.


If you require numerous employees to be tested on the same day for an upcoming business trip, we can organise an onsite workplace testing session.

How long does it take to get back results?

Results for PCR Testing takes up to 24 hours to process. We also offer rapid testing for those requiring same-day results.

Upon request, we may provide a Covid-19 travel certificate for travel purposes, verified by a doctor to provide proof of a negative test result, at no additional cost. When required, a certified Covid-19 travel certificate can be presented to show you’re safe to fly and enter a country.
