Tuesday 18th October is World Menopause Day : a worldwide awareness call for women who face health issues when approaching, during and beyond the menopause. This year’s focus in on reducing cardiac risk and preventing heart disease.

The accompanying patient information leaflet – Do what makes your heart healthy (produced by the International Menopause Society) – recognises that the menopausal phase in a woman’s life is an important window where preventative measures can be most effective in reducing cardiac risk and prevent heart disease.  It explains how to identify cardiac risk and highlights the top 10 tips for women to work with health professionals to explore options and prevention strategies that provide the correct tailored interventions for an individual patient.
