Women “More Likely Than Men to Die of a Heart Attack”

Metabolic syndrome, which is closely linked with PCOS, poses a severely increased risk of cardiovascular disease … and it may prove more deadly for women than men if the disorder leads to a heart attack.
 
A large French study found that among patients admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, women were far less likely than men to get angiography to find vessel blockages or angioplasty to clear them. As a result, women were about twice as likely as men to die within a month of a heart attack, the study said.
 
“This suggests that we could reduce mortality in female patients by using more invasive procedures,” said Dr. Francois Schiele, chief cardiologist at the University Hospital of Besancon, France.
 
The study, presented to an American College of Cardiology meeting in Atlanta, said men were 57% more likely than women to be treated with invasive techniques like angiography and angioplasty.
 
Fortunately, a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise to lose weight can help to reverse the symptoms of both PCOS and metabolic syndrome before serious heart damage occurs from factors such high levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol, low levels of HDL “good” cholesterol, excess weight or obesity and high blood pressure.
