How high is risk of heart attack (sudden cariac death) if basic hearth tests are ok?

i heard there is still considerable risk of sudden cardiac death although my EKG/ECG as well as Echocardiogram as well as blood tests (cholestrol levels) look good. ….

…reason being plaque in coronary arteries can be high regardless of good results of above mentioned tests.

is it true? if so, how to early detect such risks ?

    There are three levels of prevention-
    1. Adapt a healthy life style, eat healthy, avoid smoking/ disturbed routine like late hours, go for some physical exercise daily.
    2. Keep going for regular check ups even when in good health, like every 6 months or so,
    & 3. If any sign is detected, don't ignore it & take prompt treatment.
    I think following these steps will prevent chances of sudden cardiac death.
    Good luck!

    What are your cholesterol levels – many doctors base their decisions on the "ratio" — this is not always a good indicator. The best results are those that lower your risk: HDL is >40 –the higher the better — to reduce risks, LDL should be 120 or lower depending on family hx and other disease factors/ Total cholesterol should be below 200/ triglycerides should be below 150 — if your numbers are not in these ranges — you are at a greater risk.
