Yes, “THE BIG ONE” is real! And it is much more common in men.
Heart disease is a common cause of death in the US, in both men and women.
For men, getting help can be the first step to preventing heart disease. Men are 24% less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year.
Just about a half of sudden cardiac deaths occur outside a hospital. If you are aware of the warning signs of heart disease, you are more likely to get the help that you need.
Symptoms of heart attack and serious heart disease include pain in the chest, arms, shoulder, elbows, back, jaw and even the teeth! Shortness of breath, and a new onset of extreme fatigue are also signs.
Physical fitness, healthy living and eating can all help to prevent heart disease, but nobody is immune.
