According to CBS News medical contributor Dr. Tara Narula - a cardiologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and national spokesman for the American Heart Association - the annual mortality rate for cardiovascular disease for women has outpaced men since 1984.
"We're learning that the biology of women's heart disease may be very different from men in terms of how they have their heart attacks, the mechanisms of their blood vessel dysfunction," Narula told "CBS This Morning."
According to Narula, health care practitioners also share blame for "misdiagnosing" female heart disease patients, "for not sending them for diagnostic evaluation" as often, and "not giving them the guidelines for treatment."
The Red for Women movement was founded in 2004 to increase awareness of heart disease for women. Narula said it's done "really well," but still not enough - while the AHA says about 80 percent of heart disease may be preventable, only 55 percent of women realize that cardiac disease is their "biggest health threat."
"A lot of women, they don't recognize the symptoms or if they do have the symptoms, they blow them off, they don't prioritize themselves, or they're afraid or they're embarrassed," Narula said.
In addition to boosting awareness, Narula also urged women to take active preventative measures, including getting annual physical examinations, knowing the risk factors, and not ignoring symptoms.
"One of the things the AHA is promoting is a 'well woman' visit. This is the idea that you go as a woman to see an internist, an OB guide and talk about your health history, your family history, your risk factors, before you ever get to the point where you have a problem," Narula said.

Statin Side Effects Often Manageable: Study « – Better information. Better health. [cached]
"Just because you have a side effect doesn't mean you have to stop statins forever," said Dr. Tara Narula, associate director of the cardiac care unit at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
If you think you're having a side effect, Narula said, you should talk to your doctor about it and not just stop the statin on your own.
Doctors, as well as many patients, know that muscle pain is a potential statin side effect, so they may be quick to suspect the drug when aches arise, Narula noted.
"It's obviously important to listen to patients and take their complaints seriously," Narula said. But, she added, the problem comes when patients are taken off the statin and "the issue is never addressed again."

Additionally, "the more diverse your bacteria were, the better your HDL and triglycerides," Dr. Tara Narula, a cardiologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, told "CBS This Morning."
So how can you improve your gut's microbiome?
"There are a couple of things you can do. Obviously, your diet affects it. Eating a diet that's high in fruits and vegetables, lower in red meat, and high in fiber," Narula said. "Also prebiotics and probiotics can help."
But she points out that your gut's microbiome is created over time from the day you're born. "Even whether you're a cesarean section versus a vaginal delivery starts to affect the bacteria in your gut," she explained. "Then whether you're breast fed or formula fed, and then the diet you eat throughout your life."
The environment where you grew up also plays a role. "Whether you're in New York City or somewhere else in the country, you're exposed to different bacteria," Narula said.
