HEART DISEASES IN WOMEN – HEALTH CARE
Heart Disease in women is the leading cause of death in most developed countries.
There’s a famous phrase that says – To feel good from your head to your feet, keep a healthy heartbeat. Although many people have become health conscious, the question that arises is – Is our consciousness enough? In today’s time and age, when women are juggling between their careers and personal lives, are we giving enough time to ourselves; are we taking enough care of our heart.
Research says that heart diseases or cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death amongst females in the modern world, much against the common belief that women generally do not suffer from heart disorders. To understand this alarmingly concerning phenomenon, I spoke to Dr. Zubair Memon, Specialist Cardiologist from Aster Clinics and Hospitals.
A very important thing that I realized during my chat with him is that the symptoms of cardiovascular disorders in men and women are completely different. Symptoms like indigestion, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, back pain…can all be indicators of cardiovascular disorders in women.
However, some simple modifications in our lifestyles can go a long way in avoiding the risks of heart diseases. Have a healthy lifestyle, make exercises a part of your life. Walking for 30 mins a day would also do wonders. Change dietary habits, switch to more veggies and organic diet. Control your blood pressure or diabetes, if you have any. Last but not the least; get yourself checked once in every 6 months. Watch the video and hear it from Dr. Zubair.
You know it is often said that you cannot beat a healthy heart. Consequently, at the core of all our lifestyle practices should be a healthy heart; because when you take care of your heart, your heart takes care of you. Do share with me your most valuable tips on how we can beat heart diseases.
Love and Health,
