Hi, i'm 15 years old and was just wondering how serious my family history of heart disease is.
An uncle died of a heart attack in his mid 40's but he smoked almost all the time so that was another major factor.
My grandfather had a mild heart attack and an aneursm around age 75 but was fine after that and lived till 89 with no other major heart problems in between.
They were both on my mums side of the family, none of her other brothers or sisters have had any problems so far,
dads side of the family have no problems either.
Is this a bad family history?
