Weight Linked to Age of First Heart Attack in Women

Weight Linked to Age of First Heart Attack in Women

A study of nearly 1,000 heart attack patients focused on women finds that the heavier the patients were, the younger they were when they suffered their first heart attack. Compared to normal weight patients, those in the overweight category were 3.5 years younger when they suffered their heart attacks. Those in the obese category were 6.8 years younger, and those in the very obese category were 9.4 years younger. Those who were morbidly obese were twelve years younger at the time of their first heart attacks. Research suggests that weight clearly is a factor.
