Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America and the number-one killer of women over 25. It kills nearly twice as many women in the U.S. as all types of cancer.
The factors listed below have been linked to a higher risk of heart disease.
Women’s symptoms of heart disease are often different and less obvious than men’s — including abdominal discomfort and breathing changes. Heart disease in women tends to be under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed. That’s why it’s important to know the signs and symptoms. If you catch heart disease early, you can help slow its progress.
UPMC recognizes the value of expanding women’s awareness about heart health and heart disease risk factors. That’s why we support the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women campaign.
