Heart Disease Still the Leading Cause of Death for Men

June is Men’s Health Awareness Month.

Heart disease has long been the leading cause of death among men, and it remains a significant health threat. Even though the gap between men and women has narrowed, men are still more likely to die from heart disease than any other cause. It accounts for about 24% of men’s deaths compared to 21% for women.

Men often face more risk factors, including higher rates of smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and untreated high blood pressure and diabetes. These factors can severely impact heart health over time.

The good news? You can take charge of your heart health by making lifestyle changes and seeking medical treatment. Talk to your Health Care Provider about how you can work together to reduce these risks and build a healthier future.
