Women’s Heart Health—Assess Your Risk
Some of your habits or traits can increase your chances of developing a heart problem. Take a look at the factors listed below to see how your heart is at risk:
- Are you 55 or older?
- Are you under 55 and have had early menopause or a hysterectomy with the removal of your ovaries?
- Do you smoke?
- Have you been diagnosed with diabetes?
- Do you have high blood pressure (greater than 149/90)?
- Are you 20 pounds or more over your ideal weight?
- Do you exercise fewer than three times a week?
- Do you have a father or a brother younger than 55 with heart disease?
- Do you have a mother or a sister younger than 55 with heart disease?
- Is your cholesterol level (measured within the last five years) greater than 200mg/dL-or do you not know your cholesterol level?
If you said yes to two or more of these questions, talk to a doctor at ECMC. You can discuss your concerns and work together to ensure a heart-healthy future.
