Dyslipidemia
Family history of CVD
Hypertension
Smoking
Physical inactivity
Obesity

All of the above are correct except for family history of diabetes. While diabetes itself is a risk factor for IHD, this is due to pathophysiology of the disease. Therefore, someone with a family history of the disease would not be at an increased risk of IHD unless they had developed diabetes themselves.
