Diet and Prevention of Ischemic Heart Disease in Women

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. It is the cause of 33% of female deaths worldwide and is the No. 1 cause of death in postmenopausal women. However, IHD, which develops when arterial blockage reduces the blood flow to the heart, is preventable and treatable. Dietary changes can address a number of risk factors, and specific nutrients (such as vitamin E, folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber) are linked to a reduced risk of IHD. Most research shows that dietary patterns are more important than dietary supplements. In the last few years, new guidelines for heart disease have been released with significant changes from prior years. This course covers new diet and exercise recommendations from leading health organizations that form the foundation for heart health in women.
