While lifestyle modifications and changes in diet can help prevent heart disease in men and women alike there are some distinct differences when it comes to treating these patients once a diagnosis is made.

As technology has improved, including the diminishing size of catheters, Jean Marie, Cacciabaudo, MD, from Northwell Health said that has made a big difference in helping female cardiac patients get the treatment they need. The doctor also said this can be the time to look at ways patients can change their lives to help reduce their risk of heart disease, or cancer, or other conditions. She said this can include cooking the right food, getting the right amount of sleep, and taking other steps to maintain a healthy life for this generation and others in the future.
