How Does Heart Disease Affect Women?

How Does Heart Disease Affect Women? | The Jett Journal | Scoop.it

 

"In the United States, 1 in 4 women dies from heart disease. In fact, coronary heart disease (CHD)—the most common type of heart disease—is the #1 killer of both men and women in the United States.

 

Women tend to have CHD about 10 years later than men. However, CHD remains the #1 killer of women in the United States. The good news is that you can control many CHD risk factors. CHD risk factors are conditions or habits that raise your risk for CHD and heart attack. These risk factors also can increase the chance that existing CHD will worsen.

 

Lifestyle changes, medicines, and medical or surgical procedures can help women lower their risk for CHD. Thus, early and ongoing CHD prevention is important."

 

More information about heart disease in women is available through the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's The Heart Truth® campaign. 

JettRay's insight:

As we raise awareness this month about Breast Cancer, let's continue to be aware of the necessity for a lifestyle that encourages good heart health, every day.
