Yes. Many in my family--I'm told that I have it even though I'm extremely dedicated to fighting it because every member of my family has done (some worse then others).
I was told as a teen that I was in trouble but I'm doing well (apparently best of all them--both sides).

I guess my point is if every member of your family (or most) have it, be careful! Many med pros have said, 'genes trump lifestyle.'

I believe it's worth fighting!

It is not a modern thing in my family. I'm 5th known generation.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcomes. So just wondering...has any of you had people in your family or friends that have had heart attacks at a young age? I am finding more & more that people are having heart attacks younger & younger. Unfortunately I am one of them but greatful for the opportunity to actually survive.

Nice to meet you! I'm just turned 41. You sound like everybody else in my family :)

I'm fighting that cos I've seen too much that I don't want. Hopefully, it'll all be smooth sailing for you from now on!
