Important to know: Are women more prone to heart diseases than men? This information came out in the study
Heart disease is one of the most common diseases in the world in the last decade. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are one of the leading causes of death globally. An estimated 17.9 million people died of CVD in 2019, which is 32% of the total global deaths. Of these, 85% of deaths were due to heart attack and stroke. More than three-quarters of CVD deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Although earlier heart diseases were considered to be a disease with aging, although in the last few years cases have been seen in younger people as well.
According to health experts, lifestyle and diet disturbances are considered to be the major cause of heart diseases, it can happen to anyone. But is there a higher risk of heart diseases based on gender? Are women more prone to heart disease than men?
Women are at higher risk of heart diseases
In a study published in the 'Journal of Neurology', scientists reported that women may be at higher risk of heart disease than men. Apart from this, women are more likely to have a negative effect on thinking and memory. This study suggests that midlife cardiovascular conditions and risk factors are also related to cognitive ability, with a higher risk seen in women, says Michelle M. Mielke, a member of the American Academy of Neurology and one of the study's authors.
affect cognitive ability
The study included 1,857 people aged 50- 69 years. The participants' condition was assessed every 15 months for three years, with special attention to language, brain function, and thinking-decision-making. Of these, 1,465, or about 79 percent, had at least one heart disease or related risk factor. The researchers found that the effect on cognitive ability due to cardiovascular problems was seen more in women at risk.
What do the researchers say?
In the study, scientists found that cardiovascular problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and dyslipidemia were more likely to affect cognitive ability in women than in men. Professor Mielke says, in this study, there is an understanding of gender-based cardiovascular disease risk and its effect on cognitive ability. More studies may be needed at the moment to clarify these conditions. For the time being, the evidence from this study points to women taking special precautions against heart diseases.
