Menopause and you: heart issues

Lankenau Medical Center January 16, 2012 By Beverly Vaughn, MD

Heart disease is more than just “hardening of the arteries”. There are abnormal heart rhythms that also have a deleterious effect on health. Dr. Maribel Hernandez speaks about coronary artery disease and other conditions of the heart as they particularly affect women. Symptoms can be subtle; Dr. Hernandez helps you recognize potential signs of a problem.

This article is part of Menopause and You, a web-based program sponsored by Women’s Health Source. It is intended as an information resource providing guidelines for women. As always, check with your own health care provider with your specific concerns and questions.
