Hot Flashes Are More Than Annoying

Healthline reports that research shows hot flashes could be a signal of higher risk of heart disease
A new study from the University of Pittsburgh finds that frequent or persistent hot flashes could be a sign that a woman is at higher risk for heart attack or stroke. "Unfortunately, before now, there's not been a lot of studies of large numbers of women to really confirm what we know or what we don't know," said Tracy Stevens, a cardiologist with Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute and a professor of medicine at UMKC. The study will be presented at the North American Menopause Society.
