May is Womenís Health Month

Is your heart healthy?

Did you know that heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in women? Thatís 1 in 3 deaths each year. Also, womenís signs for heart disease can differ from menís.

Heart attack signs for women:

  • Pain in the center of the chest. The pain can last more than a few minutes. It can also leave and return.
  • Pain in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach
  • Shortness of breath. This can happen with or without chest pain.
  • Cold sweat, feeling lightheaded or nauseas

The most common sign of a heart attack for both women and men is chest pain. But, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting and back or jaw pain also often occur.

The good news is that you can help prevent heart disease. Hereís how:

  • Donít smoke
  • Learn how to manage your blood sugar
  • Control your blood pressure
  • Learn about your family history
  • Be active
  • Eat healthy
  • Maintain a healthy weight

You can also help lower your risk by having regular wellness visits.

We’ve teamed up with CJ McCollum and his mom, Kathy, to talk about womenís heart health.

Hello.

We have exciting news to share. ODS is changing its name to Moda Health.

Moda comes from the latin term "modus" and means "a way". We picked it because that's what we are here to do: help our communities find a way to better health.

Together, we can be more, be better.
