New Guidelines on Women’s Heart Risk
It’s the classic Hollywood scene, the middle age man jumps up from his desk clutching his chest. He falls over as the paramedics rush to revive him. Heart attacks, for some reason we only seem to think of that being a man thing. The truth of the matter is, heart problems are just as big a deal for the ladies. We’ve found some new information we’d like to share on keeping your precious heart beating as long as possible.
Women are now classified in three groups: high risk for heart disease, at risk, or ideal cardiovascular health. The high-risk group changed little from previous years and includes women with established heart disease, chronic kidney disease, or diabetes, among other risk factors.
If might also suggest our good friend Tracy Wirtz at KATC TV has a wonderful series called “Gotta Move Goes Red” it’s all about being healthy and especially being heart healthy I hope you will watch for it on TV or check it out on www.katc.com
