Are You At Risk of Heart Disease?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S., responsible for one in four deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). But it doesn’t have to be. Through education and early treatment, heart disease can be successfully treated and, in many cases, even prevented.
The most common symptom of a heart attack for both men and women is chest pain or discomfort. However, women are more likely to have atypical symptoms. Other heart attack symptoms include, but are not limited to the following:
- tingling or discomfort in one or both arms, back, shoulder, neck or jaw,
- shortness of breath,
- cold sweat,
- unusual tiredness,
- heartburn-like feeling,
- nausea or vomiting, and
- sudden dizziness or fainting.
Take this heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.
