Coronary Heart Disease is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. More than a million (0.5%) of total population in Indonesia and approximately 227.364 (0.5%) of people in West Java Province of Indonesia were diagnosed with coronary heart disease (CHD) in 2013. These statistics highlight the importance of research in this group of patients. There are many factors that can lead a person to experience CHD. The risk factors of CHD including obesity, cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood glucose level, stress, lack of exercise and smoking. Monitoring the risk factors of a cardiac event is a critical element to prevent coronary heart disease. Therefore, this study was conducted for early detection of coronary heart disease risk factors among people in Hegarmanah, Jatinangor. This descriptive study aimed to describe coronary heart disease risk factors among people in Hegarmanah, Jatinangor. The data was obtained by asking the participants related exercise, diet and smoking. The clinical outcomes assessed in this study consisted of blood pressure (BP), cholesterol, blood glucose, and body mass index (BMI). The results showed that most of the respondent had not obey a healthy diet (88%).The majority of the respondents had abnormal score on BMI (56%), cholesterol level (69%) and blood pressure (78%).  The majority of respondent showed a normal level of blood glucose (78%) and did not smoke (81%). The majority of respondents used to perform exercise. This study can be concluded that most of the respondents have the risk factors of CHD.  Therefore, the risk factors of CHD should be concerned as part of cardiac prevention and need further research on patients’ knowledge on risk factor management.
