Women’s Health Month: Depression
Did you know cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women worldwide?
Symptoms also present differently in women than in men. Women’s heart and blood vessels are smaller, the heart beats faster, even when sleeping, and women are also more likely to have heart palpitations because of shifting hormones.
If you are concerned about your heart health, don’t mess around and visit a doctor to talk about your symptoms. And remember, in an emergency do not hesitate to call 911!
