  Heart Disease
 

Heart disease is no longer considered a “men’s” disease. Before recent studies, women on average received less aggressive treatment for heart disease and were not referred to have diagnostic testing performed as often. Consequently, many women after finally being diagnosed with heart disease had more advanced forms of the disease and their prognosis was not as good as.
