Heart Health for Women: Breaking the Gender Gap

 Heart health for women is a critical area that often faces significant disparities and misconceptions, leading to a gender gap in awareness, diagnosis, and treatment. Historically, heart disease has been primarily viewed as a men's health issue, overshadowing its impact on women. However, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for women globally, highlighting the urgent need for gender-specific approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and management. One key challenge is the underestimation and misinterpretation of symptoms in women. While chest pain is a common symptom in men, women may experience subtler signs such as fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea, or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back. These differences can lead to delays in seeking medical help and receiving appropriate treatment., Risk factors for heart disease in women include traditional factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking, as well as unique factors such as hormonal changes (like menopause), gestational diabetes, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Mental health conditions, like depression and chronic stress, also contribute to heart disease risk in women.
