Women’s Heart Attack Facts
When you think of a heart attack victim, what do you picture? Most of us picture an overweight older man, right? Interestingly enough, women are higher at risk than men. We just don’t think of heart attacks as being a woman-specific problem.
Why are women so vulnerable to heart attacks? And which women are most at risk? The following facts about women and heart attacks may help you save a woman’s life.
Heart Attack Fact #1: Women are six times as likely to die of a heart attack than men
Why is this true? Women often experience milder symptoms than men, meaning they are less likely to get help in time. Women may have heart attacks without even experiencing chest pain. Instead they may feel a tight feeling in their chest, or wonder why their heart is beating so rapidly, but not feel enough pain to even suspect a heart attack.
Heart Attack Fact #2: Heart attacks are the number one cause of death for women
And yet women focus on breast health, cancer prevention and osteoporosis instead of heart health. For some reason the media focuses on these other women’s health issues instead of teaching women that it’s important to protect their hearts above all.
Heart Attack Fact #3: Some women’s health treatments increase the risk of heart attacks
Many women use oral contraceptives, hormone patches or get hormone replacement therapy. All of these hormone-based health treatments increase a woman’s chance of having a heart attack. Many women would gladly suffer through more minor health issues if they knew it would extend their lifespan (by lowering their chances of having a heart attack), but this risk is often downplayed. Women are especially at risk for a heart attack if they take extra hormones and they smoke, are overweight or are over age 60.
Heart Attack Fact #4: Women’s stress levels can increase their vulnerability to heart attacks
Many women take on the roles of caretakers, even when their children are grown and out of the house. They may watch grandchildren or care for spouses who have health issues.
Many women don’t learn how to properly manage stress, which puts them at a higher risk for high blood pressure and emotional overeating. All of this contributes to strain on a woman’s heart, resulting in a higher risk of a heart attack.
Ways to Protect Yourself From Heart Disease
If you are a woman, you will want to:
Maintain a healthy weight
Learn to manage stress (try yoga, meditation, journaling, walking)
Ask for help
Eat a heart healthy diet
Avoid hormone-based therapy when possible
All of these efforts, when combined, will lower a woman’s risk for a heart attack.
