When you’re going through menopause, it’s not just your hormones that are changing – your heart health can change as well.
You may be surprised to know that heart disease is the number-one cause of death for women over 50 years of age. In fact, women are four times more likely to die from heart disease than breast cancer. The good news is, most forms of heart disease are preventable and menopause is a great time to get proactive about your health. Making heart-healthy changes at midlife can set you up for better health in later life. Best of all, these changes can not only lower your risk of developing other chronic diseases, but can improve your quality of life as well.
