Key signs that a woman is suffering from heart disease or will soon suffer a potentially deadly cardiovascular issue are often missed because they are more subtle than they are in men, leading cardiologists warn.
A report published by American Heart Association (AHA) warns that women are often diagnosed with heart disease later in life than men are despite no evidence they actually develop it later. This means that they are likely in a worse condition and starting treatment at a more degenerated state.
Often-overlooked symptoms for heart disease include being able to walk for a shorter period of time and occasional trouble breathing. Experts at the AHA also warn that some symptoms that a woman may soon suffer a heart attack, stroke, heart failure or another potentially deadly condition are often overlooked as well.
