Ask the Doctor: Heart disease


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – In this week’s Ask the Doctor segment, we are talking about heart disease.

For more insight, News 8’s Anne Craig spoke with Dr. Beth Collins. Collins is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

After actress Carrie Fisher’s death, we’re hearing a lot about women’s heart health. A lot of people probably don’t realize this, but heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in women.

The symptoms are very different for men and women.

Some of the questions we asked:

– What should women look out for?

– What should we be doing to live a healthy lifestyle?

Check out the video above for Dr. Beth’s answers, and catch News 8 at 5 p.m. every Wednesday for our “Ask the Doctor” segments.
