If you think heart disease is a man's disease, you're wrong.
As we said the new study shows that women under the age of 50 are more than twice as likely to die from a heart attack as men in the same age group.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Chicago;]


Several factors account for the differences. Women have different symptoms than men.
They often do not experience any chest pain. Instead they are more like to experience indigestion, fatigue and shortness of breath.
Not recognizing the signs, women often delay seeking treatment.
And the study shows when the younger females go to the hospital, a third of doctors may not recognize the problem.

But the study says a high percentage of the deaths can be blamed on a more aggressive form of heart disease.
Apparently the platelets in a woman's blood are "stickier" than a man's. That leads to more clots and blockages, which in turn cause more heart attacks.
As is the case of all heart attacks, the key to survival is in getting immediate medical help.
