In a year that is normal and not dominated by COVID headlines, the #1 killer for women in the US is heart disease. It is a silent killer and for most women, their first sign of heart disease is usually the last. Dr. Holly Novak, a Doctor with Prairie Heart Institute of Illinois say that there are many different risk factors.
Novak says that you should talk to your doctor, especially if you have a family history of heart disease.
As far as heart disease, some of the signs are more discomfort rather than pain.
For women heart disease is a killer and should be taken very seriously.
For more information on heart disease, talk to your local physician.
