To reduce the risk of heart disease you are encouraged not to be overweight and eat healthily, be a non smoker, drink alcohol within moderation and take measures to reduce stress.

Menopause is a risk factor for heart disease. Heart disease therefore is a significant cause of death in women, yet with better recognition and early treatment the risks of heart disease can be reduced or even prevented.

After the menopause, several changes take place due to the lack of estrogen which increase womenís risk of heart disease. These include an increase in blood pressure, increase in cholesterol, changes in the circulatory system and change in fat distribution.

Because the symptoms of heart disease can be different in women compared with men and heart disease/heart attacks in women are sometimes not recognised.

Changes such as losing weight, increasing exercise, stopping smoking and treating high blood pressure can reduce heart risk.

We hope that by taking part in this survey, you will be better informed and be empowered to take action.
