Adult women of all ages and in all stages of their lives face the risk of developing heart disease. But there are many things women can do to reduce their risk, like exercise regularly, maintain a healthy weight, eat a healthy diet, manage stress, and more. Here are a few quick facts about heart disease in women.
Chest pain, pressure, or discomfort are the most common heart attack symptoms for both men and women. Women, however, are more likely than men to experience some of these other symptoms: particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain.
Preventing heart disease in women takes a partnership between our heart specialists, breast cancer specialists, obstetricians, your primary care provider (PCP), and you. We work together to address common conditions that can threaten heart health, such as family history, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, pregnancy related complications, breast cancer treatments and others. If you suffer from any of these conditions or want to learn more about how to prevent heart disease, contact us today.Call (585) 442-5320 to Schedule a Consultation
