How Does Age Affect Risk Of Heart Failure?

Question: How does age affect my risk of heart failure?

Answer: Under the age of 50, it's actually relatively uncommon for people to be diagnosed with congestive heart failure, though the symptoms of heart failure can begin at that point. Between the age of 64 and 84, those who have been diagnosed with heart failure actually doubles. Once a person is 65, they have 10-15 percent chance of developing congestive heart failure. It's directly related to age.
