  • an abrupt change in the way she feels
  • a sense of impending doom
  • depression
  • indigestion or GI tract “fullness” that she feels she could get rid of if she could “just burp”


Dr. Stephen Sinatra suggests women have the following heart disease “risk factors” checked by their doctor:Risk Factors for Womens Heart Disease

  • Homocysteine

  • oxidized LDL

  • Fibrinogen

  • Lp(a)

  • CRP

  • serum ferritin
