Unveiling the Silent Killer: Why Women Are at Higher Risk of Death After a Heart Attack. Lets know in details in this post.
It is not surprising that heart disease is the top cause of death in the United States given the surge in awareness over the previous few decades.
But did you realize that, just among women, heart disease is the leading cause of death? Cardiovascular disease is the direct cause of one in three fatalities in women.
.........And to make matters worse, heart disease is the leading cause of mortality for women over 65.
No matter the gender, family history raises the risk of cardiovascular disease. Although there isn't a single gene that directly causes heart disease or a heart attack,
......many genes interact to raise your risk of getting either condition. Therefore, there is a good probability that you are at risk if one of your parents had heart disease.
There are a few different risk factors that women don't share with males, in contrast to family history, which is significant to both men and women.
For instance, only affecting women, disorders like endometriosis and polycystic ovary disease raise their risk of coronary heart disease.
Women frequently experience unusual weariness, breathlessness, perspiration, and jaw, neck, or back pain.
These symptoms frequently strike suddenly and without any kind of effort. Also common in women are nausea and vertigo.
Women must therefore be extremely aware of their bodies and not disregard even the smallest sign or symptom.
