Some heart attack risk factors affect women more dramatically than men

09 Novembre, 2018, 03:26 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

High blood pressure was associated with a more than 80 per cent higher risk of heart attack in women than in men, while Type I diabetes was associated with an nearly three times higher risk in women, and Type II diabetes a 47 per cent higher risk.

Doctors should also be better at spotting female patients at risk.

Women are more likely to die as the result of a heart attack, with experts fearing this is because they regard heart issues as "typically male" and do not seek help as quickly when they start noticing symptoms.

However, the risk factors appeared to be stronger for women than men.

However, a high BMI was not found to be linked with an excess risk in women.

An excess risk was also found among women with high blood pressure, and Type I and Type II diabetes.

New U.K. research has found that smoking, diabetes and high blood pressure, key risk factors for heart disease, may have a bigger impact on the risk in women than in men.

But they emphasised that due to its design the could draw no firm conclusions between cause and effect.

But the study says women often don't realise they are at risk of heart disease and they may also be on the receiving end of poorer care and treatment from doctors.

The study shows that heart attack risk associated with high blood pressure is 83 percent higher for women than men; with smoking, 55 percent higher, and with Type II diabetes, 47 percent higher.

Although the chest pain is often severe, some people may feel only minor pain, similar to indigestion.

Women with type 2 diabetes, for example, are 96 per cent more likely to have a heart attack than women without.

And the authors said women with diabetes, high blood pressure and who smoke, "should be considered at a level of risk comparable to many men".

The researchers said unless women begin to improve their lifestyles, their rate of heart attacks would begin to move towards that of men.
