Migraine In Women Indicates Greater Heart Risk

Researchers now say that women who suffer from migraine could be more at risk for heart attacks than women without migraine. Their findings have been published in the ‘British Medical Journal’. According to the Professional Association of German Neurologists (BDN), migraine headaches affect approximately one in five women. Says Prof. Tobias Kurth, Head of the Institute of Public Health (IPH) at Berlin, “Migraine should be considered an important risk marker for cardiovascular disease, particularly in women.” Researchers believe there is an urgent need to provide preventative solutions.
