Study suggests heart attack recovery is more difficult for young women

A new study suggests young women may have a more difficult recovery after a heart attack than young men.

Yale researchers followed 3500 heart patients under the age of 55.

A year after their heart attack, women were more likely to have poor physical and metal functioning, more chest pain, and a lower overall quality of life.

The differences may be due to a range of cultural and biological causes, but experts say improved treatments are needed for young women recovering from a heart attack.
