First guidelines to prevent strokes in “women” have been released by the American Heart Association.
Just as heart attack symptoms may be different in men than women, stroke risks also vary by gender.
The new advice focuses on birth control, pregnancy, migraines and other conditions women face uniquely or more frequently than men do.
High blood pressure is the single biggest risk factor for both men and women.
