Heart Disease, a Threat for Men

Heart Disease, a Threat for Men


Let’s take a look at some heart disease
facts and pretty impressive it’s the leading cause of death in men
in the United States and maybe we could punch up this number which brings it
home killing three hundred and twenty one thousand men in 2013 that’s one in
every four doctor. I mean it’s a leading cause of death in United States
period both men and women as well as we this is a show about men’s
health but women also need to be thoughtful about their heart. Let’s take it one step farther half of the men who died died suddenly of coronary heart
disease have no previous symptoms and let’s show one more which finalizes our
point between 70 and 89% of sudden cardiac events occur in men. So there’s a lot of factors that play into that and again
the physician patient relationship is essential especially with your primary
care physician so that you can begin to understand the benefits of preventive
medicine cardiovascular preventive medicine is a exploding area of
cardiovascular health your cardiologist hopefully will dedicate some time to you
and you especially your primary care physician better be dedicating some time
to trying to help you prevent the heart disease and where you are asymptomatic
and what is your doctor looking at to try to prevent that event from happening
and most men as we’ve already talked about you know mr. testosterone man I nothing
got wrong with me like this isn’t gonna happen to me and sort of that
avoidance technique obviously may be playing a role there with that number.
