Heart HQ – Episode 24: International Women’s Day
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we reflect on an earlier podcast they recorded about women and cardiovascular disease.
We discuss the top 5 things to consider when it comes to women and heart disease:
- More than 5% of Australian women over the age of 18 report having one heart attack, stroke or cardiovascular disease.
- Cardiovascular disease among women is more common than cancer.
- Lifestyle (diet, exercise and weight management) is very important when it comes to prevention and management of cardiovascular disease.
- Indigenous women are twice as likely to have cardiovascular disease than non-indigenous women.
- Women often present with atypical symptoms.
