Penn Study Identifies Risk Factors for Sudden Cardiac Death in Post-Menopausal Women with Coronary Artery Disease

This article from the PennMedicineNews.com site is one that you need to read, and then discuss with your doctor. Hopefully, you are not dealing with the risk factors listed in the article:
previous heart attack, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, physical inactivity, diabetes, and reduced kidney function---but if you are, please make sure that you are keeping up with your medical appointments and take special care to reduce your risks to the extent that you can. This is also an article to share and discuss with the older loved ones in your life who may be dealing with any or all of the risk factors listed----we often think of post menopausal as just those few years after we hit menopause, but in actuality it's the years from the moment of menopause until death.
