Data gathered from the last twenty years has shown that even though heart disease has decreased in recent years, it is becoming more clear that women experience it more then men. The most disturbing part, women often never even show signs of the disease. This means that more women die from it because they are not diagnosed until it is too late.
Awareness of not only the symptoms, but also of the fact that it is not easily detectable in women – even through cat scans, can help lower the number of fatalities from the disease. Women tend to brush of health problem related symptoms more often then men, thinking that a symptom is not as serious and waiting longer to be seen by a doctor or go to the hospital.
With data that is hard to ignore, awareness of the diseases’ symptoms and seriousness are the only way to help prevent heart disease related fatalities in women. Learn the symptoms, eat healthy, and stay active. For a list of symptoms and more information about the statistics of the disease, visit “Top 5 Symptoms of Heart Disease in Women.“
