Women's Heart Health
Although many people don’t realize it, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both women and men, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The risk and incidence of heart disease starts to increase in women at age 40, yet many women are not aware of the symptoms of heart disease. Many think of it as a "men's" disease.
Women are accustomed to being caregivers. They tend to dismiss their own symptoms and take longer to seek medical attention
Unlike men, however, women’s symptoms present differently and their treatment options often require different interventions.
