US Preventive Medicine(R) Says Study on Heart Disease-related Deaths Demonstrates Need for Preventive Medical Care
Date:11/27/2007

DALLAS, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study that shows young women are dying of heart disease while the death rate for men has leveled off offers strong evidence that preventive medical care is the most effective solution to fighting the war on cardiovascular disease, said Christopher T. Fey, the chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine(R).

The just released study published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology revealed that more women under 45 are dying of heart disease due to clogged arteries, while the death rate for men that age has leveled off.

Heart experts aren't sure what is taking place, but they think increasing rates of obesity and other risk factors are to blame for the rising rate of cardiovascular disease in young women.

"Advancements in treatment and preventive measures, such as prescribing cholesterol-lowering medications, are improving the outcomes for thousands of individuals. The problem, however, is that we still need to get constructive preventive measures in the lives of people earlier rather than later when expensive, life-saving treatment is necessary," Fey said. "There are millions of people at risk right now who will benefit from low-cost preventive care."

Preventive care often ends for American adolescents when they leave the care of a pediatrician and doesn't resume until symptoms occur later in life, he noted.

"The disease process starts early in life and steps -- many of them simple and inexpensive -- should be taken then to avoid serious medical complications later in life," Fey said.

Those action steps should include health risk assessments and early screening tests such as comprehensive blood work so top risks can be determined and controlled, he said. U.S. Preventive Medicine(R) offers proactive preventive health services at every point in the healthcare continuum of an individual's life, including The Prevention Plan (R), a groundbreaking online personalized prevention
