Heart disease is the biggest killer in the Western world - as well as the fastest growing disease. In the UK, a person dies from heart disease every five minutes. This is a jargon-free, user-friendly book which aims to demystify the topic of heart disease. Written in clear, non-technical language, it outlines the different types of heart disease, explains the tests and treatments as well as including a special section on heart disease in women. It is designed to give guidance on all stages of the disease - from prevention to understanding and selecting treatments. It includes a glossary of terms and a sample "good" and "bad" interviews for patients to use with their doctors.
