An online test can help reveal your true heart age

We're supporting a national campaign aimed at getting people heart health aware.

Adults aged between 40 and 60 are being encouraged to get to know their heart age by taking part in a free online Heart Age Test.

The short test, developed by Public Health England, helps you determine if your heart is at a higher age than your actual age.

It does this by asking a variety of physical and lifestyle related questions, as well as taking blood pressure and cholesterol information.

Having a heart age that is older than your actual age means you are at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Taking part in this short test means you can quickly identify if you might be at risk of developing a preventable heart condition.

To find out your heart age, search 'Heart Age' or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/nhs-health-check/check-your-heart-age-tool

Live Life Better Derbyshire staff will be taking part in a range of information events around the county in September. They will help you fill in the online test and offer a variety of health and wellbeing advice too.

You can find details of where the events are taking place here
