Dr. Nieca Goldberg:
Cardiovascular disease is the leading killer of women in our country and 90 percent of the risk for heart disease in women is preventable. What I want all of the women I need or who visit to this podcast do, is to schedule an appointment with their doctor to get their risk factors for heart disease evaluated.

It’s just a physical exam of blood pressure, a blood test for cholesterol and blood sugar and then I want you to find some way that you can start to reduce your risk for heart disease.

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
