CIMT Exams for Women

1 in 3 Women Will Suffer From Heart Disease, the
#1 Killer of U.S. Women.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), here are the facts:

  • Heart disease is the #1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.

  • Heart disease causes 1 in 3 women's death each year, killing approximately one woman every minute.

  • An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease. 90% of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
     
     
  • Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease.

  • The symptons of heart disease can be different in women and men, and are often misunderstood by women.

  • 26% of women age 45 and older who have an initial recognized heart attack die within a year compared with 19% of men. In part because women have heart attacks at older ages than men do, they're more likely to die from them within a few weeks.

  • Only 1 in 5 American women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat.  Women comprise only 24% of participants in all heart-related studies.

Misperceptions still exist that heart disease is not a real issue for women. CIMT can help identify your risk and clarify these misperceptions.  When your doctor tells you to "Know Your Numbers", such as HDL, LDL, total cholesterol, etc., make sure he or she includes your CIMT values within the equation.
