Women’s Heart Health

Posted By admin On February 4, 2021

Most people associate a heart attack with crushing chest pain. While that may still be true for most men, women often experience more subtle signals. Just because they are more subtle doesn’t mean they are not to be taken seriously. According to the CDC, heart disease was the leading cause of female deaths in 1 out of 5 women in the United States in 2017 and continues to rise. The key is education and self-care before heart disease becomes a factor. Below are some guidelines to follow, but they do not replace seeing your physician should you show any symptoms.

The main symptoms of heart attack/heart disease that women have are:
1. Unusual fatigue.
2. Shortness of breath.
3. Pain in the arms, neck, or shoulder blades.
4. Nausea or vomiting, especially after exercise.
5. Light headedness or dizziness.
6. Sweating.
7. Indigestion or heart burn.

Because many of these symptoms seem out of character for heart disease, many women ignore them until they become urgent enough to seek medical help immediately. By then, they may have already experienced damage to their heart. Diagnosing and treating heart disease early is key to a long and fulfilling healthy life.

There are many ways to change your lifestyle to help keep your heart and arteries healthy. If you smoke, you need to consider quitting right away. Smoking has a direct connection to heart disease, but the good news is that quitting will improve your health. Exercise should be part of your daily regimen, with at 3 days of cardio a week. Make sure and visit your doctor before starting an exercise routine.
