Women and Heart Disease (Infographic)
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year—approximately one woman every minute. When it comes to heart disease, women experience unique causes, symptoms and outcomes when compared to men. In addition, certain conditions or unique factors appear to increase heart disease risk in women. If you think you or a loved one is at high risk for heart disease, talk to your doctor about making an appointment with a cardiologist.
