Women’s heart health / steam treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia / Mayo Clinic Well Living Lab: Mayo Clinic Radio
According the American Heart Association, only 1 in 5 women believe heart disease is the greatest threat to their health. The fact is heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death for women and men. Heart disease in women causes 1 in 3 deaths each year — a much larger number than die of cancer. Heart disease doesn’t affect all women alike, and the warning signs for women aren’t the same as they are in men. In addition some risk factors such as pregnancy and menopause are unique to women, therefore women should know what steps to take to prevent heart disease.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Rekha Mankad, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist and director of the Women’s Heart Clinic, will join us to discuss women's heart health. Also on the program, Dr. Tobias Kohler, a urologist at Mayo Clinic, will explain a promising new treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. And Dr. Brent Bauer and Dr. Anja Jamrozik will share findings of the first study done by Mayo Clinic's Well Living Lab. Dr. Bauer is director of the Mayo Clinic Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program and medical director for the Well Living Lab. Dr. Jamrozik is the Delos® behavioral science consultant.
