CVD risk is reversed after 5-10 years of no smoking

Benefit often has nothing to do with the effect on the surrogate marker. At present, you can only select one intervention at a time.
If CHD in men < 55 years, women < 65 years - increase risk by 50%. If no family history - decrease estimates by 33%.
Use to adjust risk based on family history or if patient is at a lower/higher risk than the Framingham cohort. See the FAQ for guidance.

As with all risk calculators, calculated risk numbers are +/- 5% at best. More information.
