Although men are more likely to have heart attacks than women, unhealthy lifestyles, such as smoking, along with diabetes and high blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attacks among women.
A recent study found that the highest risk of heart attacks among women with high blood pressure and diabetes in the first and second models suffering from high body mass index appears large.
"Generally, more men suffer from heart attacks by women, but many of the major risk factors increase the risk of infection by men," Dr. Elisabeth Millett, Professor of Epidemiology at George University in the United Kingdom. Thus, women who suffer from these factors suffer from a relative disadvantage.
Patients with stroke generally suffer from chest pain, shortness of breath, pain in the hands, back, neck, jaw or stomach.
Women are likely to experience unusual additional symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, cold sweat, nausea and vomiting.
For the study, published in BMJ, researchers looked at 4.72,000 participants aged 40 to 69, of whom 56% had high blood pressure, diabetes and smoking, increasing the risk of epileptic seizures Very rich.
According to the study, smoking increased the risk of heart attack by 55% more than men, while high blood pressure increased the risk of heart attack in women by 83% compared to men. Combined with poor eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle, it has a 47% greater impact on the risk of men's heart attacks.
