Keep up with Women’s Cardiovascular Health Week and watch the brilliant presentation by Prof. Lale Tokgözoğlu

This month’s EAS open lecture aligns with the webinar on Women & Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). In light of this, we are pleased to present a lecture on this topic by Prof. Lale Tokgözoğlu, originally delivered at the EAS Congress in 2021.

Prof. Tokgözoğlu is a Professor of Cardiology at Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey. In this lecture entitled “From risk factors to acute coronary syndrome in women,” she enlightens us on the differences in cardiovascular risk between men and women. To this end, she dives into epidemiology, risk, and psychosocial factors, hormonal and lifestyle differences leading to sex disparities in CVD presentation and management.

EACH welcomes the EPP’s call for a ‘European Cardiovascular Health Plan’

The European Alliance for Cardiovascular Health (EACH) welcomes the recent announcement by the European People’s Party to include a ‘European Cardiovascular Health Plan’ as a core component of their electoral manifesto.

This historic step answers the urgent need for comprehensive action to address Europe’s health crisis and tackle its leading cause of death – cardiovascular disease which costs the EU €282 bn every year. The long-term mission to achieve a healthier Europe was the reason why the European Alliance for Cardiovascular Health (EACH) was created in 2021 as a coalition of patients, healthcare professionals, researchers, and health industry representatives.

Women and risk of CVD – role of diet and lifestyle

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death in women worldwide. Despite this, it is often perceived to be a man’s disease. Although the biology of the disease is the same, some sex-specific risk factors and conditions alter the course of the disease. Women experience a number of hormonal changes throughout their lives that impact lipoprotein metabolism and therefore risk of CHD.

In addition, the increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity leads to women getting dyslipidaemia earlier in life, especially in middle income countries. A misperception that a heart attack is a man’s disease, and unconscious biases in the delivery of healthcare, may lead to delayed treatment and poorer survival chances for women who suffer a heart attack. Understanding and addressing any sex-specific differences in the area of dyslipidaemia and CHD is an important opportunity to improve healthcare.

Read the second article of this year’s series, serving as a practical reminder about the components of cholesterol-lowering dietary changes. It also acts as a refresher and practical guide to support you in providing dietary advice.
