Globorisk is the first cardiovascular disease risk score that predicts risk of heart attack or stroke in healthy individuals (those who have not yet had a heart attack or stroke) for all countries in the world. It uses information on a person’s country of residence, age, sex, smoking, diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol to predict the chance that they would have a heart attack or stroke in the next 10 years. If the person does not have a recent diabetes or cholesterol test, they can use the office-based version of Globorisk which is based on body weight and height instead.
