The old stereotype of a middle-aged man heart attack patient is no longer applicable. Now young women are joining these unwanted ranks.

American women are increasingly susceptible to heart disease at a younger age – and they receive lower aid compared to men, according to a recent study

A report in the American heart The Circulation Association Magazine showed that the number of patients aged 35- 54 years old, who were hospitalized with heart attacks in the United States, increased from 27% in 1995-1999 to 32% in 2010-2014.

percent to 31 percent, compared with men, rising from 30 to 33 percent.

Just as women are less prone to treatment when they suffer such life-threatening incidents because they often do not fit into the profile.

"A persistent lifestyle of the American population with obesity and diabetes changes the face of medicine , "said Joseph H. Hill, professor at the Texas Medical University, chief editor of the print run. "We are seeing a worsening of lifestyle in young women, starting with college. The face of cardiovascular disease in our society is changing. "

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 735,000 people in the United States each year Heart attack is an episode when the heart is not getting enough blood flow. The cardiovascular disease is the nation's killer number 1, which claims that about 635,000 lives per year and one in every four deaths for both men and women. for women.

will benefit from the hormones released during the menstrual cycle, a recent study shows that they are now at risk at younger ages.

CDC states that only about half of women realize that heart disease is their most likely cause of death, 10 times more likely than breast cancer.

"We must admit that now in 2019, women at the age of 30 have heart disease, whereas 20-30 years ago it was rare," Hill said. "The changes that have taken place over the past 20 years are amazing."

The study examined nearly 29,000 heart attacks in 1995-2014 in four locations in the state of Washington, Maryland; Jackson, Mississippi; Forsyth, North Carolina;

ranged in age from 35 to 74 years, and the group was considered young – 35-54 – was 8,737 general hospitals, or 30 percent.

Harlan Krumholz, professor of cardiology at Yale University, said that the study has some limitations because its latest data was collected more than four years ago, but it is nevertheless an important caveat.

"This study is an outbreak signal that we must double to promote healthy lifestyle and prevention strategies – and specifically focus on young women," & # 39; said Krumholz. "We can be in danger of losing the significant achievements that we have achieved in previous decades."

Hill and Krumholz emphasized that inequities in treatment are not related to deliberate discrimination, but random differences in the symptoms between men and women who experience what is known as acute myocardial infarction or, rather, different health outcomes # 39; i

Krumholz noted that when he was at a medical school, and a lesson on heart attacks, the images used for illustration always showed men.

"When doctors see young women with risk factors, they do not have to think of them as a high risk of heart disease. In general, this is not a typical profile, "said Krumgolz.

"We must banish that there is a typical profile. In a society where obesity is becoming more widespread and many of these risk factors come back, if we continue to gain weight, this will complicate our risk of heart disease. & # 39; & # 39;
